4-axis, open loop, push-button, microdrive controller

MC500 and MC501 open-loop DC controllers are specifically designed to drive series 500 and 500MM actuators. The 4-axis MC500 controller allows a user to operate as many as four series 500 actuators of any travel length. It has two preset speed settings: rapid (300μm/second) and medium (100 μm/second). The third speed selector (slow) has a variable 330° potentiometer that enables settings from high speed (30μm/second) to low speed (10μm/second). With the speed selector set at the slowest settings, consistent 1.0 μm 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 to electrophysiology experiments.
