SmarAct Breadboard Series

SmarAct Breadboard Series

Nanopositioning Toolbox for Lab and Industry

SmarAct‘s breadboard series is a new range of positioners, accessories and tools that allows you to simply configure your system. The series consists of linear positioners as well as rotary positioners and goniometers to cover all demanding positioning tasks in your laboratory. Due to the consequent compatibility of the hole pattern you can combine different types of positioners and brackets to build multi-axis positioning systems. Adapters for standard metric breadboards (M6 screws, 25 mm hole pattern) extend the compatibility to the range of widely used optomechanical components. Different types of position sensors and controllers provide high-resolution closed-loop control from 1 nm to 100 nm. As always, we gladly help you to find the optimal solution.

Key Features:

  • Flexible application in lab and industrial environments
  • High resolution with SmarAct’s positioning technology
  • Repeatable motion by integrated position sensors
  • Compatible to SmarAct standard controllers
  • Complete range of brackets and assembly tools

Accessories

The breadboard series comes with a range of accessories that are necessary to build your own multi-axis system. The set of accessories includes different baseplates, right-angle brackets as well as a set of screws and tools so that you can combine linear and rotary positioner in a way your application requires. For higher vertical loads of up to 500g you can easily add a constant force spring.
