About the Tiger Controller
The Tiger controller is an expandable modular card rack based system. Racks are available with either 8 or 16 card slots.
The Tiger is designed to control one or more microscope workstations simultaneously from a single USB connection.
TG8-BASIC – Includes TG8, TGCOM, 2) TGDCM2, SA-JOY+ZF Contols four DC servo motors, Com card w/USB, Power supply, and Joystick w/ two knobs; 5 more free slots.
TG16-BASIC – Includes TG16, TGCOM, 2) TGDCM2, SA-JOY+ZF Contols four DC servo motors, Com card w/USB, Power supply, and Joystick w/ two knobs; 13 more free slots.
TG8 – Eight-slot power supply and chassis / box for motion control cards. Bench size 9.25″W x 5.5″H x 10.25″D 100-240 VAC Input.
TG16– Sixteen-slot Power supply and chassis / box for motion control cards. Rack-mount size 19″W x 5.5:H x 12.5″D 100-240 VAC Input.
Tiger Controller Plugin Cards
|Communication card. It connects to host computer with USB interface, and provides communication with all cards in the TG8 or TG16 box.
|Dual axis motion control card – one slot.
|Single axis motion control card – two slots.
|DAC voltage control card, used for controlling 0-10V piezo devices.
|Dual FW-1000 Filter wheel control card – two slots.
|Four-axis micro-mirror scanner control card.
|Piezo DAC Card. It provides 2 DAC (0 to 10 V) outputs to control third party piezos.
|CRISP card. It provides CRISP focus control of DC servo stage such as LS-50, has TTL I/O.
|Field-programmable card for digital logic, like a mini-FPGA. Has eight front-panel I/O ports plus connections to the Tiger backplane.
|Jumper-configurable TTL card with four I/O ports. For most applications this has been replaced by TGPLC.
|Two-channel 50ohm TTL driver.
|Tiger plug-in card that can drive up to four MIM LED-LAMP-NRs (high brightness LED illuminators).
