M-230 are ultra-high-resolution linear actuators providing linear motion up to 25 fmm with sub-micron resolution in a compact package. They consist of a micrometer with non-rota-ting tip driven by a 2-phase stepper motor or a closed-loop DC motor/gearhead combination with motor-shaft-mounted, high-resolution encoder (2048 counts/rev.).
Compared to conventional rotating-tip micrometer drives, the non-rotating-tip design offers several advantages:
Elimination of torque-induced positioning errors
Elimination of sinusoidal motion errors
Elimination of wear at the contact point
Elimination of tip-angle-dependent wobble
M-230 actuators provide a cost-effective solution for heavier-duty industrial and OEM environments. They feature extremely low-stiction, low-friction construction, allowing for minimum incremental motion as low as 50 nanometers and speeds up to 1.5 mm/sec.
Non-Contact Limit and Origin Switches Integrated, non-contact, high-precision Hall-effect origin and limit switches protect your equipment and increase versatility in automation applications.
NIntegrated Line Drivers M-230 actuators include an integral 0.5 m cable with 15-pin sub-D connector and a 3 m extension cable. On the DC-servo versions, the connector features integrated line drivers for cable lengths up to 10 meters between actuator and controller.
A screw-in ball tip and a flat tip are included.
