Product Details Supplier Info More products

Newport has introduced a series of vacuum-compatible actuators and a rotation stage, which are designed for integration in critical sample positioning or beam management processes within vacuum environments.

The new vacuum stages feature a motor-mounted encoder that is said to be useful for detecting the stall of a stepper motor, since the stage is not accessible when installed inside a vacuum chamber.

According to the company, the encoder improves position repeatability — an important requirement in a number of research and commercial applications in vacuum environments.

The new vacuum-compatible products can be supplied with Newport’s motion controller products, ranging from the single-axis SMC100PP to the eight-axis XPS universal controller.

Key information

LTAHSPPV6 and LTAHLPPV6 actuators

  • Rated at 10,000 hours MTBF
  • Compatible with other vacuum-compatible manual stages
  • Designed to ensure submicron minimum incremental motion (MIM) and unidirectional repeatability

URS50BPPV6 rotation stage

  • Rated at 20,000 hours MTBF
  • Said to complement Newport’s higher-load-capacity URS75BPPV6
  • Capable of 360º continuous motion at 4º per second and a MIM of 0.0015º
  • Can accommodate 5kg loads
  • Includes four-mounting hole locations designed to enable top mounting and to enhance the cantilevered load capacity
