The MC1100e is a simple 4-axis push-button controller with Submicron positioning capability, and compatible with our 800 and 7000 series actuators, manipulators, and stages. These controllers have two preset speed settings: rapid (1.7 mm/second) and medium (300 μm/second). The third speed selector (slow) has a variable 330° potentiometer that enables settings from high-speed (50 μm second) to low speed (2μm/second). With the speed selector set at the slowest settings, consistent 0.2 μm moves are easily made by the simple bump of an axis button. The controller uses encoder feedback from the motor to drive the device. This encoder coupling enables the use of the DR1000 digital readout for repeated positioning requirements.
The MC1100e has a target/retract feature on one axis. Target/retract allows a user to set a target location at the desired point. When it becomes necessary to back away from the experiment area, the user simply presses the RETRACT button on the controller. The stage/actuator plugged into that axis 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 MC1100e uses a CE certified power supply as their source for clean DC power. All controller cables are shielded and fitted with a central ground lug located on the junction box to ensure noise-free operation during sensitive electrophysiology experiments.
