MOTION CONTROL:Servo2Go has just added a new high performance linear stage series to its broad range of positioning 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.

Max. centered load 100N
Compact design featuring high speed, high thrust and high accuracy
Mounts in an XYZ configuration without any additional hardware
Several units can be daisy-chained to a single serial port
