Technical Specifications


Number of XYZ Nanopositioners
NX-1000:  1    NX-2000:   2
NX-3000:  3    NX-4000:   4
Software: A LabVIEW based applications library for mechanical and electrical probing and other useful procedures is already installed on a laptop computer running Windows. Additional applications are provided with grippers, force sensors and other optional end effectors. Other custom built user applications will require separate purchase of LabVIEW from National Instruments
Controller and Joystick: Provide control for all three axes of motion. Control is switchable between XYZ nanopositioners. Positions of previously selected nanopositioners are held fixed and retained in memory. One controller and joystick can drive up to four independent XYZ nanopositioners.
