MS-4400 XY Automated Stage

About the MS-4400

The MS-4400 XY provides a high resolution and highly repeatable means of controlling the X and Y positions of the microscope stage. The MS-4400 XY stage is designed for larger upright microscopes like Leica DMR-series, Nikon Eclipse 80i, Olympus BX series,  Zeiss Axioplan, Axioskop 2, and Axio Imager. All axes derive their precise control through the use of closed-loop DC servomotors employing high-resolution rotary encoders for positioning feedback. By using closed-loop control of the stage position, there is no chance that the stage will become lost, as can occur with open-loop micro-stepped stages after a number of moves and direction changes. The MS-4400 XY stage utilizes crossed-roller slides, a high-precision lead screw, and zero-backlash miniature geared DC servomotors for smooth and accurate motion. The MS-4400 pairs well with the PZ-2000 series of piezo-Z top-plates or ASI’s Z-drive custom fitted to automate the microscope’s focus.
