Motorized Micromanipulator Offers High Resolution and Easy Control

Vancouver, BC – Zaber’s new M-LSM Series motorized micromanipulator delivers high resolution and easy control options for applications that involve positioning probes under a microscope with either a joystick or computer.

The M-LSM features an adjustable probe holder that can mount probes with diameters between 2 and 13 mm; using the holder, probes can be rotated a full 360 degrees and easily locked in position.

Multiple mounting options (either to metric or imperial optical breadboards), and right or left-hand orientation options make the M-LSM easy to configure for different types of applications and systems.

Plug and play connectivity to Zaber’s T-JOY joystick (included in the accessory kit, along with two A-MCB2 stepper motor controllers) also makes the M-LSM easy to control in velocity mode.

Besides offering high resolution finer than 0.05 µm, the M-LSM delivers 25 mm travel along three axes (XYZ), 0.5 kg load capacity, up to 14 mm/s speed, and up to 15 N thrust. The A-MCB2 controllers can also connect the device to the RS-232 or USB port of any computer for additional computer control.
