Compact Vertical Translation Stage
The MPS50SV is also offered with a lead-screw for more cost-sensitive applications. Unlike competitive products that use belts and other high-wear-rate components, all drive train mechanics are designed with high reliability and service life in mind. MPS-SV motor options include a DC servomotor with rotary encoder and a stepper motor. A precision-machined wedge design and lateral constraint system result in high stiffness and load capacity, while at the same time providing constraint of lateral motions. Vacuum and Mounting Options As with all MPS-series stages, the MPS-SV stages are available with vacuum preparation to 10-6 Torr that includes a vacuum-rated connector. An optional mounting plate provides direct mounting to both English and metric optical breadboards. The inherent mounting compatibility of all MPS stages allows for simple mounting in multi-axis arrangements.
