H2W introduces the LSS-060-04-006-ME linear stepper positioning stage which is part of the LSS series family. This stage has a stroke of 60 in [1500 mm] and generates 6 lbs [26.6 N] of continuous force. It incorporates a 1 micron resolution linear encoder, which when operated under closed loop control, improves system accuracy and repeatability.
ThisLSS seriesis 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.
