Zaber Technologies Logo

 

  • Worm gear driven for continuous rotation
  • Two lens holders allow for use as a polarizer mount
  • Speed up to 75 rpm and torque up to 2.25 N⋅m
  • Encoder position feedback with slip/stall detection and automatic recovery
  • Built-in controller; daisy-chains with other Zaber Technologies products
  • Multiple X-Series products in a daisy-chain can share a single power supply
  • Custom versions available

 

Features:

1. Control all units in the daisy-chain via serial port (with a locking X-SDC cable) or USB (with an X-USBDC cable).
2. Daisy-chain additional units with a locking X-DC02 cable or X-DC06 cable. Power can also be shared in the chain.
3. Integrated motor encoder, controller, and stepper motor driver provide easy-to-use closed-loop motion.
4. Stage top has metric M6 threaded holes as well as UNC #8-32 holes.
5. Rotating centre optic holder fits 25 mm (1′).
6. Non-rotating optic holder recessed into housing for simultaneous mounting of two optics (1 rotating and 1 fixed).
7. Precision worm gear allows for continuous rotation.
8. Holes on bottom and two sides provide flexible mounting options; can be mounted directly on other Zaber Technologies stages.

 

Zaber Technologies’ X-RSW-E Series products are computer controlled motorized rotary stages with integrated controllers and motor encoders. They are stand-alone units requiring only a standard 24-48 V power supply.

Built-in motor encoders allow for closed-loop operation and slip/stall recovery features. An indexed knob provides smooth manual control at variable speeds in both directions for versatile operation even without a computer. Press and hold to switch between velocity mode and distance mode, turn to move the stage, and press to stop.

Zaber Technologies Gimbal

We offer motorized stages that can be assembled into many different configurations; for example, XY stages, XZ (X-LSQ and X-VSR shown in video), XYZ stages and XYZ/rotation stages. Use our standard configurations or select your own combination of stages to build the multi-axis system to fit your needs.

Zaber Technologies’ stages connect to the USB 2.0 or RS-232 port of any computer and can be daisy-chained with up to 254 Zaber Technologies products per chain. The chain also shares power, so multiple X-Series products can use a single power supply.
