E-665. LVPZT Amplifier & Position Servo-Controller with High-Speed RS-232 Interface

Product Description
The E-665 is a bench-top, low-voltage PZT amplifier and position servo-controller with integrated high-speed RS-232 computer interface and a 20-bit D/A converter. The E-665 supports all position sensors offered with PI piezo translators and NanoPositioning stages: strain gauge sensors, LVDT sensors and capacitive sensors.

It is ideal for use with single-axis translators such as

  • P-841 stack actuators with strain gauge sensors
  • P-721 PIFOC® microscope objective positioners with LVDT or capacitive sensors
  • P-620 PIHera series single-axis stages with travel up to 500 µm and capacitive sensors
  • P-753 LISA/P-752 series NanoAutomation® stages with capacitive sensors

New and Fast Communications Interface
The RS-232 interface handles communications with the outside world. It performs up to 300 bidirectional read or write operations per second and incorporates precision 20-bit D/A and A/D converters for exceptional positional stability and resolution.Multi-Axis Network
Up to 12 E-665s can be networked and controlled over a single RS-232 interface.PI General Command Set
The E-665 is to a large extent freely programmable and its command structure conforms to the PI General Command Set. This command set is common to the E-516 Computer Control and Display Module and an increasing number of PIcontrollers, and is designed for multi-axis operation. It is PI's goal to make all of its controllers "understand" these commands, either directly or via command libraries. This will greatly reduce the effort required to produce custom programs, especially in environments which include a number of different controllers. Included with the E-665 is user-interface software as well LabView® and other driver sets.

Scientific News
Kitchen Utensils Can Spread Bacteria Between Foods
In a recent study researchers found that produce that contained bacteria would contaminate other produce items through the continued use of knives or graters—the bacteria would latch on to the utensils commonly found in consumers' homes and spread to the next item.
GMO Food Animals Should be Judged by Product, Not Process
In a world with a burgeoning demand for meat, milk and eggs, regulatory policies around the use of biotechnologies in agriculture need to be based on the safety and attributes of those foods rather than on the methods used to produce them, says a UC Davis animal scientist.
Acetaldehyde and Formaldehyde Content in Foods
Korean researchers have determined the content of the toxic and carcinogenic aldehydes, acetaldehyde and formaldehyde, in a variety of food groups.
Increasing Vitamin D Supplementation
New study from ETH Zurich finds that elderly women should consume more vitamin D than previously recommended during the winter months.
IARC Monographs Evaluate Consumption of Red Meat and Processed Meat
Processed meat eaten daily increases the risk of colorectal cancer by 18%.
Nanoparticles in Foods Raise Safety Questions
Nanoparticles can make foods like jawbreaker candies brighter and creamier and keep them fresh longer. But researchers are still in the dark about what the tiny additives do once inside our bodies.
Arsenic Found in Many U.S. Red Wines
A new University of Washington study that tested 65 wines from America’s top four wine-producing states — California, Washington, New York and Oregon — found all but one have arsenic levels that exceed what’s allowed in drinking water.
Viruses Join Fight Against Harmful Bacteria
Engineered viruses could combat human disease and improve food safety.
Plastic for Dinner
Roughly a quarter of the fish sampled from fish markets in California and Indonesia contained man-made debris according to a study from the University of California, Davis, and Hasanuddin University in Indonesia.
