The VCS12-1000-RB-01-C3 voice coil positioning stage uses H2W voice coil motor NCC12-60-1000-2X to generate a continuous/peak force of 100 lbs [454 N]/300 lbs [1362 N] with a total stroke length of 1.2 in [30.5 mm]. The 1.0-micron resolution encoder allows for precise positioning. It comes supplied with a linear bushing which allows for smooth motion. The motor coil is the moving part of the assembly in order to reduce the moving mass of the system. Power is supplied to the motor via a high flex, high reliability flat ribbon cable. The voice coil motor has been mounted in-line with the bearing assembly in order to reduce the overall height and width of the system.
