NEW SCALE NEWS
YOUR UPDATE ON MICRO MOTION TECHNOLOGY AND APPLICATIONS
February 2021
Dear Colleague,
We are really going to miss seeing everyone at Photonics West this year! But we're excited about the Digital Forum and Marketplace that SPIE has put together instead. Join us online March 6-11.

We're launching a new product in our M3 line - continuing to simplify embedding precision motion into handheld and portable instruments. Contact us any time to learn more.
NEW PRODUCT
Precision microstage brings Smart Stage advantages to high-volume applications

New Scale's newest M3-LS Smart Stage is a cost-effective solution for instrument designers who need to embed precision motion into instruments designed for high-volume production and long life.

The M3-LS-U2-10 Linear Smart Stage is a direct-drive precision piezoelectric micro stage with embedded controller. Like all M3 Smart Stages, it is designed for fast and easy integration into compact instruments.

The speed of 35 mm/sec is seven times faster than other M3 Smart Stages.

Specifications include:
  • Moving Mass:     40 grams horizontal load, 20 grams vertical load
  • Travel:              10 mm
  • Speed:             35 mm/s
  • Force:               0.2 N
  • Resolution:        500 nm with absolute encoding - no need to home the stage
  • Dimensions:      32 x 32 x 10 mm - including controller
  • Voltage/Power:  5 VDC, ~2.4 W peak at max speed

Applications include instruments for DNA sequencing, wearable medical devices, instruments for point-of-care diagnostics, handheld video microscopes, devices for telemedicine, portable spectroscopy instruments, handheld imaging systems, and laser beam steering.

We are accepting pre-orders now for general availability in Q3 2021.
