Zaber Technologies announced its T-LSQ series products, which are computer controlled motorized linear stages with a variety of lead screw pitches and travels. They are stand-alone units requiring a 48V power supply, included with the kit version. A potentiometer knob at the end of the unit permits manual control.
The stages connect to the RS-232 port of a computer and can be chained with up to 254 units per chain. They can also be chained with any other T-Series products. Convenient 6-pin mini din cables on the unit allow for direct interconnection between units in close proximity. For longer distances, standard cable extension can be used.
