Recommended Controller / Amplifier

Single-channel (1 per axis): E-610 servo-controller / amplifier, E-625 servo-controller, bench-top, E-621 controller module

Multi-channel: E-500 modular piezo controller system with E-503 amplifier module (three channels) or E-505 (1 per axis, high-power) and E-509 controller


The resolution of PI piezo nanopositioners is not limited by friction or stiction. Value is given noise equivalent motion with Dynamic Operating Current Coefficient in µA per Hz and µm. Example: Sinusoidal scan of 10 µm at 100 Hz requires approximately 2.5 mA drive current.
