Providing high precision positioning in six axes, Hexapods from Physik Instrumente are available in a package that includes a new compact controller. They also continue to be offered with the 19” rack unit controller that provides control of two further individual servo axes as a standard feature. The parallel-kinematics Hexapods are offered as a system including a powerful digital controller and comprehensive software support. Additional piezo systems as well as optical or analog inputs can be connected as an option. The controller firmware has been revised and the trajectory control improved further. Available first time, a data records keeps track of such real time operating variables as motor control, velocity or position. Macros can be stored directly in the controller and thereby support stand-alone operation is possible. Commands are transmitted via TCP/IP Ethernet or serially via an RS232 interface. Well-known and proven features such as the pivot point that can be defined freely in space via software commands and the convenient control in Cartesian coordinates are available.
