1. Integrated stepper motor controller and motor driver allows for easy-to-use control.
2. Control all units in the daisy-chain via serial port (with a locking X-SDC cable) or USB (with an X-USBDC cable).
3. Daisy-chain additional units with a locking X-DC02 cable or X-DC06 cable. Power can also be shared in the chain.
4. An optional indexed knob provides convenient manual control.
5. Top mounting surface for M6 and M3 fasteners.
6. 73 mm tall when closed.
7. Speed up to 48 mm/s.
8. Easy access slots for M6 and 1/4-20 fasteners.

Zaber Technologies’ X-VSR-E Series vertical lift stages are computer-controlled, stepper actuator driven platforms capable of moving 10 kg loads. They are stand-alone units requiring only a standard 48 V power supply.

An optional indexed knob provides convenient manual control for versatile operation even without a computer. These stages connect to the RS-232 port or USB port of any computer, and they can be daisy-chained with any other Zaber Technologies products. The daisy-chain also shares power, making it possible for multiple X-Series products to share a single power supply.
