The model 8310 closed-loop Picomotor actuator is ideal for applications where closed-loop control and absolute position calibration is required.


Closed-Loop Picomotor™ Actuator

The model 8310 closed-loop Picomotor actuator is ideal for applications where closed-loop control and absolute position calibration is required. With an integrated rotary encoder and limit switches, it offers the best attributes of the standard Picomotor actuator, ie. <30-nm resolution, >5 lbs. (22 N) of force along with set-and-forget long-term stability and ±1-µm bi-directional repeatability over the entire half-inch travel range.

Laser Beam Profiling at NIR Wavelengths

Ophir-Spiricon, the global leader in precision laser measurement equipment, introduces a new feature to our beam profiling family with the addition of a USB InGaAs camera. This room temperature NIR camera system provides 320×256 resolution at 30 micron pixel pitch. When working in the 900-1700nm range this camera is plug-and-play with BeamGage® software and makes real-time profiling measurements and images to assist those with telecom, military and research applications. • (866) 755-5499

New: iBeam smart — The Ultra Compact Diode Laser

TOPTICA allows users to increase productivity and reliability in their applications, while at the same time optimizing the weight and size of their systems at only 4×4×10cm3. As the first true one-box compact OEM diode laser modules it is capable of upgrading almost any existing diode laser. This is made possible by a highly integrated, microprocessor based electronic setup in combination with an outstanding opto-mechanical design. Also, the iBeam smart is the most powerful as well. • [email protected]
