Product Description

The Nano-PDQ Series are high speed multi-axis precision piezo nanopositioning systems. The Nano-PDQ Series offers a compact footprint with a large center aperture while still offering fast response and sub-nm precision. The Nano-PDQ Series are ideal for applications that demand high scan rates or large load capacities. The Nano-PDQ Series may be ordered with the Nano-Drive® or the Nano-Drive®85 controller to match your application speed requirements. The Nano-PDQ Series features parallel, uncoupled motion in up to three axes and fully integrated position sensors utilizing proprietary PicoQ® technology to provide absolute, repeatable position measurement and picometer accuracy under closed loop control. Another system to consider: The new low profile Nano-LPQ has similar 3-axis, high speed positioning performance but is sized to be more convenient when used on inverted research microscopes.
