Developer's Kits for M3-L Closed Loop Linear Motion Module

Developer's Kits for M3-L Closed Loop Linear Motion Module

New Scale Technologies' developer's kits for its miniature M3-L closed-loop linear motion module includes an M3-L module for precision closed-loop linear motion, along with a USB adapter and New Scale Pathway software for easy evaluation and prototyping. Configured for I2C or SPI serial interface, the modules in the developer's kits are offered with a bullet nose for pushing and a hook tip for pulling loads up to approximately 0.2 Newtons. Standard travel is 6 mm. Each M3-L module is an integrated micro-mechatronics system incorporating a piezoelectric SQUIGGLE micro motor, position sensor, driver and microprocessor in a 27.5 x 13 x 7.5 mm housing. No external control board is necessary.
