*These products are configured per customer order. Siskiyou sales team will contact you with a ship date after your order*
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 MC1000e-R/T 4-axis dial controller is similar to the MC1000e-R1/4T above except that each axis has its own color coded dial for control of 4-axis micromanipulators. The controller can be table mounted on either side to mimic the placement of the manipulator providing quick, intuitive control and ease of use.

The rapid setting is set to maximize speed (1.5 mm/second) when the dial is turned at 240 RPM.

The TARGET/RETRACT feature on the MC1000e-R1/4T and MC1000e-R/T controllers 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-J joystick controller is designed for micron-scale positioning of our 800 and 7000 series actuators, manipulators, and stages. The joystick control is proportional from slow to high through the travel range of the joystick motion. A two-position rocker switch is conveniently located on the top of the controller. The rapid setting is set to maximize speed (1.7 mm/second) when the joystick is moved to its farthest position from the center. The slow setting is set to maximize resolution (0.2 μm, 30 μm/second). This controller is ideal for X-Y-Z control of motorized manipulators.
The MC1000e series controllers use a CE certified power supply as their 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.

Switch boxes for MC1000e-R/T or MC1000e-J
Our switching box allows control of one to four 4-axis (3-axis for -J models) micromanipulators by one controller. The basis of the design is simple and requires only an extra controller junction box for each added micromanipulator or motor drive group (up to four per group). Junction boxes must be purchased separately, however this is more cost-effective than individual handheld control units. The user can save a "target" location for each manipulator independent of the operation of the others even after switching between micromanipulators. The DR1000 is also compatible with this switching box and will allow the user to reposition without the use of an expensive computer based controller. The switch box comes with enough cables to attach four junction boxes, and all connections are shielded.

- Control 2 to 4 micromanipulators with 1 controller.
- Cost-effective and easy to assemble
- No position loss during switching
- RoHS compliant→
Junction Boxes for MC1000e-J and MC100e
When used with the SB-MC1000e-J, 9 pin 4-way switch box (-J models), or SB-MC1100e, 25 pin 4-way switch box (-R/T models) the junction boxes for MC1000e is used to operate up to four 4-axis micromanipulators with one controller. Each micromanipulator needs a separate junction box. This will allow the operator to select which micromanipulator is active and only need one hand-held joystick or rotary dial controller on the station for position control.
- RoHS compliant→
- Power requirements 100–240 VAC, 50-60 Hz
- Universal switching AC/DC power supply included
The DR1000 Digital Readout provides an accurate, highly visible display for axis position. The digital readout may be installed on any of our e series controllers and is connected in series via a double-sided connector between the controller junction box and the device D connector. Each digital readout reads a single axis position. Additional units may be used to monitor multiple axes. The DR1000 reads from 50 mm down to 0.1 μm and has a face mounted ZERO SET button. The DR1000 receives clean DC power through the junction box of the MC1000e series controller. All cables are shielded to ensure noise-free operation during sensitive electrophysiology experiments. The slim and light weight case may be mounted separately or stacked on top of each other in multiple axis applications.

Power Supply, Cable and Plug Adapters
Each Junction box requires a separate power supply, power cable and plug adapters if required. WT006 is the power supply, WT004 is the power cable for US applications, WTAUK005 is an adapter to use with UK receptacles, WTAE005 is a 2-pin adapter for use with EU receptacles.
