The DRS-048-11-104-EX dual rail positioning stage is ideal for applications that require long travel distances. It uses a high force brushless linear motor to generate a continuous/peak force of 104 lbs [462 N]/309 lbs [1386 N] with a total stroke length of 48 in [1219 mm]. The non-contact 1.0-micron resolution encoder allows for precise positioning. It is guided by dual rigid recirculating ball linear bearings. The entire stage is assembled on a single piece of aluminum extrusion, thus reducing the overall weight of the system and easily allowing for long strokes. There are also provisions that allow customer cables to be routed within the cable carrier. It has end-of-travel rubber bumper stops. A home positioning sensor, end-of-travel-sensors, protective bellows covers, and custom mounting holes on the moving table are available upon request.
