* = Max values depend on motor size and bus voltage available. Please contact factory to discuss application requirements.
** = Accuracy and repeatability values are dependant on feedback resolution. Please contact factory to discuss application requirements.
*** = Flatness and straightness values are typical values and will vary depending on the construction type and bearing selection.

 

General Operating Information

Unpacking
Observe the condition of the shipping container and report any damage immediately to the commercial carrier that delivered your stage. Carefully remove the positioning stage from the shipping crate or box. Inspect the stage and report any evidence of damage to your local Baldor sales office or authorized distributor. Save the shipping container for future transportation.

Handling and General Guidelines
Be sure to observe the following guidelines:
1. Carefully set the positing stage in place. Do not drop a positioning stage onto the mounting surface or machine base as this can result in internal damage to bearing and drive components.
2. Do not drill holes in a positing stage. Contact Baldor if holes must be added.
3. Avoid impact loads such as hammering and punching which may cause internal damage to bearing and drive components.
4. Avoid submersion in liquids of all types.
5. Do not disassemble the positioning stage as this may void the product warranty.

Stage Specifications Disclaimer
Positioning stage specifications are dependant on the three following variables:
Temperature: Specifications are measured at 25 degrees Celsius. Measurements of performance at other temperatures may yield different measurements.
Minimum ambient operating temperature: 5 degrees Celsius. Maximum ambient operating temperature: 75 degrees Celsius. The positioning stage can be modified by Baldor to allow the unit to be operated at temperatures outside of this range. Contact Baldor for more information.
Point of measurement: Specifications are measured 25mm above the slide mounting surface. If measurements are taken from other relative locations, results may be different from the drawing specifications.
Mounting surface: Drawing specifications are measured with the positioning stage supported under its entire length, fastened down (bolted) and is mounted to a machine base that has a maximum flatness error of 0.0005”/ft.

LSE Series Enclosed Position Stage
General Description:
Single axis linear stage with linear motor, linear bearings, linear encoder, limit switches, cable carrier, and bellows

Construction:
Hard anodized aluminum

Bearing type:
Recirculating ball linear bearing

Encoder type:
Open glass scale, optical, magnetic

Motor type:
Brushless three phase, iron core or cog free type linear motor. Refer to drawing for motor specifications and stage model number description. Brush type DC linear motors available upon request.

Maintenance:
Refer to bearing and encoder maintenance recommendations in this manual. Exterior of stage should be kept dry and relatively free of contamination. This stage is NOT WATER PROOF. Avoid submersion.

Stage specifications:
Refer to outline drawing supplied with stage for mechanical dimensions.

Stage Mounting:
Removal of bellows is required for access to base mounting holes. Refer to mounting recommendations.
ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS (cables labeled accordingly)

Encoder:
Refer to Encoder connections.

Motor/hall/limit switches:
Your stage has flying leads 10 foot in length. These cables can be cut if required. Connectors are available, contact Baldor for more information.
