This LSS series is a linear stepper positioning stage, which integrates H2W’s linear stepper motor along with a linear encoder. The moving stepper forcer has a lower mass, which makes it ideal for high acceleration applications (0.5 to 1.5 meters per second) with light payloads (less than 1 kg). The stage can be operated under open loop control using a standard off the shelf two-phase microstepping driver. However, for better performance the stage can be operated under closed-loop using a linear encoder and a state-of-the-art motion control electronics package, available for purchase from H2W, which allows the stepper to be operated as a two-phase brushless linear motor.
LSS Series Advantages:
- Lower cost than a comparable brushless linear motor system.
- Higher speeds than ball screw stages.
- Higher accuracies than belt stage.
- Longer available strokes than voice coil stages.
Custom strokes, forces, and feedback resolution configurations available.
