MX1641 Series Manipulator
The MX1641 series crossed roller micromanipulator is ideal for introductory level research and training course use. The lead screws are spring-loaded against a solid stop to ensure drift-free operation. The MX1641 incorporates 40TPI screw drive positioning for smooth crossed roller motion in the X, Y, and Z axes. The probe axis can be adjusted to the desired angle of approach from 0° to 180°, and incorporates our 7600 series motorized stage for 0.2 μm resolution.
The MX1641 can be used with our e series and MC2010 controllers to drive the 7600 stage through a closed loop interface between the controller and the motor encoder. The closed loop connection ensures 0.2 μm and 0.1 μm resolution, respectively. The encoder coupling also enables the use of the DR1000 digital readout for repeated or relative positioning requirements. All cables are shielded to ensure noise-free operation during sensitive electrophysiology experiments. High-speed versions are available upon request.
