Zaber Technologies Logo

  • 70, 145, 295, 445, 595, 1045, 1495, 2095, 3000 mm travel
  • Up to 2.0 m/s speed, 20 N thrust, and 20 kg load capacity
  • Encoder position feedback with slip/stall detection and automatic recovery
  • Built-in controller; daisy-chains with any other Zaber Technologies products

Features:

1. An indexed knob provides convenient manual control.
2. Integrated motor encoder, controller and stepper motor driver provide easy-to-use closed-loop motion.
3. High power, 200 step per revolution stepper motor, provides smooth and precise motion at up to 2.0 m/s.
4. Control all units in the daisy-chain via serial port (with a locking X-SDC cable) or USB (with an X-USBDC cable).
5. Daisy-chain additional units with a locking X-DC02 cable or X-DC06 cable. Power can also be shared in the chain.
6. Multiple travel lengths from 70 to 3000 mm, with customized lengths available.
7. Stage top supports metric M6 threaded holes and imperial 8-32 threaded holes.
8. Multiple X-BLQ-E stages can be assembled in an XY configuration without additional hardware.

Zaber Technologies’ X-BLQ-E Series products are computer controlled, belt-driven linear stages with integrated stepper motors and controllers. A built-in motor encoder allows closed-loop operation with slip/stall recovery features. They are stand-alone devices requiring only a standard 48 V power supply for operation.

An indexed knob provides convenient manual control for versatile operation even without a computer. The stages connect to the USB 2.0 and RS-232 port of any computer and can be daisy-chained with up to 254 Zaber Technologies products per chain. Convenient locking, 4-pin, M8 connectors on the unit allow for secure connection between units. The chain also shares power, so multiple X-Series products can use a single power supply.
