EBD-120220 and EBD-120230 2/3 channel Digital Controllers

EBD-120210 digital controller for piezo nanopositioners


nanoFaktur’s second generation of  digital controllers have been completely redesigned to meet and exceed customer demands. All of the  interfaces are at the front of the instrument, so that wiring and access space is optimised and convenient. There are shackles on both the back and on the bottom of the enclosure so that the most practical integration can be chosen.

The second-generation EBDs are available for driving and reading strain-sensors and capacitive sensors. The achievable resolution is 5 ppm (rms) of the systems´ nominal ranges. Internal algorithms allow for linearization after characterizing with reference measurement systems. At nanoFaktur, highest-accuracy probes referring to official standards are employed as references. Thus systems can be linearized to better than 0.01% of their respective full displacements.

All of nanoFaktur’s digital controllers feature ID-Chips, which allow characteristic data of the mechanics to be stored. The controller detects whether a connection has been changed, then reads the data from the chip and the newly connected mechanics can be controlled instantly.
