The Nano-Drive® Series of controllers are complete electronic packages for sub-nanometer positioning. All Nano-Drive® controllers include low noise, low drift amplifiers, absolute position control, bandwidth selection, and closed loop feedback. Closed loop feedback ensures that the displacement as a function of input voltage is highly linear and free of positioning errors caused by inherent creep and hysteresis in the piezo actuators. Standard analog control inputs are via a BNC. The standard analog position command signal is configured for a 0-10V input with other ranges available upon request. A sensor output BNC provides access to the real-time position sensor signal. The Nano-Drive® is also available with higher power output and custom configurations upon request.
Nanopositioners combined with a Nano-Drive® controller form a calibrated system which is optimized for the specific motions requested by the customer. Factors such as load (sample mass), type of motion (steps, scanning, etc.), and required positioning speed are all factored into the setup.
