Forestville, CA – The LFA-1205 Linear Focus Actuator is a high performance compact positioning system.  It was specifically developed for optical applications requiring both high precision and high-speed positioning over a short to medium stroke.  The LFA-1205 is well suited for optical focusing and other micropositioning applications such as scanning interferometry, surface structure analysis, disk drive testing, autofocus systems, confocal microscopy, bio-technology, semiconductor test equipment.  Note that this motor is normally configured with an analog position feedback sensor and can be optionally equipped with a digital quadrature feedback element.    The key to this products immense success is its novel tubular architecture.  This arrangement provides a means to send the optical path directly through the middle of the motor.  The moving optic attached to the motors ‘C-mount’ is not cantilevered and so has no torques.  The LFA-1205 Linear Focus Actuator is directly compatible with the SCA814 Servo Controlled Amplifier.

 

  • 12 Millimeter clear aperture
  • 5 millimeters of linear motion
  • <50 nanometer positioning repeatability
  • Small Step Response of <1 millisecond
  • Threaded lens mount 70 x 70 x 50 millimeters, 600 grams

 

By design, the LFA-1205 Linear Focus Actuator rotates approximately 0.1 degrees or 1.7 milliradians for every 1 millimeter of translation.  Through manufacturing tolerances only there can be a small amount of pitch and roll motion that is induced during the intended translation.  These small but real error sources are routinely characterized during the manufacturing process  using our AC400 Digital Autocollimator to control product uniformity.

Motion Control – Hollow Shaft Non-Commutated Actuator.

 

H2W Logo

Santa Clarita, CA —– Motion Control – H2W introduces its most compact moving magnet actuator with a hole through the shaft. The voice coil actuator (NCM01-04-001-2IBH) can be operated under either open or closed loop position control and is ideal for controlled sinusoidal motion applications (1 to 1000 Hz for open loop applications and 1 to 125 Hz for closed loop applications). The NCM moving magnet type linear actuator has a precision ground 0.125” diameter shaft that is guided by precision manufactured high cycle low-wear plastic bushings. The shaft has a 0.059” hole that goes through the shaft which is ideal for routing a fiber optic cable, passing light through, or routing an air hose for vacuum or pressurized air.

The moving magnet voice coil has a 0.10″ [2.5 mm] stroke, generates 0.1 lbs [0.5 N] of continuous force and 0.3 lbs [1.3 N] of peak force. The actuator is driven in open loop mode by feeding a sinusoidal control signal into a servo amplifier which is in turn connected to the two leads of the actuator. The actuator can also be operated as a closed loop system by adding a programmable motion control and position feedback device.

Features:

  • High frequency operation
  • High acceleration
  • Compact size
  • Custom strokes and force configurations available
