1–4 Axis Micrometer Dial Control, with Target and Retract Feature
The MC1000e-R1/4T 4-axis dial controller acts as a remote micrometer control with a user selected target feature for 800 and 7000 series actuators, manipulators, and stages. The MC1000e-R1/4T uses encoder feedback from our closed-loop devices to create an electronic link between the controller dial and the device being driven. This direct coupling to the encoder ensures smooth and coordinated motion between the controller and the drive. The encoder coupling enables the use of the DR1000 digital readout for repeated positioning requirements.
A four-position rotary switch, mounted on top of the controller, is used to select the desired axis to control. A two-position rocker switch is conveniently located on the top of the controller to allow for rapid and slow travel speed. The rapid setting is set to maximize speed (1.5 mm/second) when the dial is turned at 240 RPM. The slow setting is set to maximize resolution (0.2 μm) but still allow coarse positioning (45 μm/second).
The TARGET/RETRACT allows the user to set a target location at the desired point. When it becomes necessary to back away from the experiment area, the user simply depresses the RETRACT button on the controller. The stage/actuator plugged into that axis (No.1), then automatically retracts to its full negative limit. The user can then return to the previously set position by simply depressing the TARGET button. The MC1000e-R1/4T uses a CE certified power supply as its source for clean DC power. All cables are shielded, and a central ground lug is located on the junction box to ensure noise-free operation during sensitive electrophysiology experiments.
