Micro-Drive, Open Loop
The MC500 open loop DC
controller is designed to drive our 500 and 500MM series actuators.
The MC500 controller allows the user to operate as many as four of our 500
series actuators of similar or different travel lengths with one
The MC500 4-axis controller has two preset
speed settings: rapid (0.8 mm/second) and medium (100 Ám/second).
The third speed selector (slow) has a variable 330░ potentiometer that
enables settings from high speed (35 Ám/second) to low speed (5 Ám/second).
With the speed selector set at the slowest settings, consistent 1.0 Ám
moves are easily made by the simple bump of an axis button.
The MC500 controller uses a wall mounted DC
power supply as its source. This noise-free DC controller, along
with our 500 series drives, can be used in proximity of electrophysiology
