The H-811 offers travel ranges of up to 35 mm in the XY level and up to 13 mm in the Z direction. It is especially the large tilting angles of 20 degrees around the X and Y axis and up to 40 degrees around the vertical axis that make this Hexapod so versatile. The miniature Hexapod reliably positions loads of up to 5 kg and achieves velocities of up to 10 mm/s. Each individual strut has a positioning resolution of 40 nm; positioning can be done repeatably with accuracies under 1 µm.
The parallel-kinematics 6D positioners are offered as a system including a powerful digital controller and comprehensive software support. There are now two versions available: One in a package with a new compact controller (255 x 226 x 185 mm) that provides the full functionality at a lower system price as well as the Hexapod system with the previous 19-inch rack unit controller, which now offers the control of two further individual servo axes as a standard feature. Additional piezo systems as well as optical or analog inputs can be connected here as an option.
The control takes place via TCP/IP Ethernet or serially via an RS-232 interface. All (target) positions are conveniently given in Cartesian coordinates.
