New Motorized Miniature Linear Stage Systems
Manufactured by Zaber Technologies Inc., the T-LSM series devices are computer-controlled motorized linear stages with high thrust and speed capabilities and a very compact size. They are stand-alone units requiring only a standard 15V power supply. A potentiometer knob at the end of the unit permits smooth manual control; turn it fully to get maximum speed. These slides connect to the RS-232 port of any computer and can be daisy-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, a standard cable extension can be used.
At only 21 mm high, these miniature stages are excellent for applications where a small profile is required. The T-LSM's innovative design allows speeds up to 8 mm/s and loads up to 10 kg. Like all Zaber's products, the T-LSM series is designed to be 'plug and play' and very easy to set-up and operate. If you are considering a multi-axis system, in the XY configuration these stages make excellent microscope stages. Adding a T-JOY3 Joystick Controller allows manual control of both x and y or xyz axes from a single interface as well as allowing microscope stage positions to be saved and recalled at the touch of a button.

What You Really Need to Know:
This device comes with a built-in controller, which saves you time and effort
External controllers can be expensive, take up extra space, require more cables, and it is no fun to shop for them or program them. That's why we built them into our devices!
You can easily make this device do a complicated series of moves with our free software
You don't need to worry about finding the right accessories. With the kit version you get a power supply, data cables, and a serial adapter. The only other thing that you may need is a T-USB, which converts a USB port into an RS232 serial port
