New Scale News
October 2014

Many of our customers are trying to shrink their desktop analytical systems down into devices that are handheld, portable and mobile. To do this they need to adjust optics with micrometer precision... in very small spaces... at any orientation... resisting shock, vibration and temperature extremes... using battery power.  


New Scale products solve this exact problem. In this issue we're pleased to introduce our new M3-LS Smart Stage developer's kit.

The M3-LS Linear Smart Stage is a high-precision micro stage with 0.5 �m resolution and absolute encoding. All drive and control electronics are inside the 29 x 20 x 10 mm stage. 

The result is the smallest overall footprint and easiest system integration of any micro stage.

The only micro positioning stage with embedded drive electronics, the M3-LS is powering a new generation of handheld, portable and mobile instruments that require precision motorized optical adjustments.

The Developer's Kit for the M3-LS is available now from Mouser and Digi-Key starting at $1,675.
