H-206 6-Axis Precision Alignment System

Ideal for Fiber Alignment

PI H-206
    • Ultra-high precision flexure joints
    • Includes integrated scan algorithms for fiber optic alignment
    • Actuator resolution 33 nm
    • Repeatability 0.3 µm / 6 µrad
    • Min. incremental motion 0.1 µm / 2 µrad
    • Velocity from 10 µm/s to 10 mm/s
    • Parallel kinematics with six degrees of freedom
    • Sophisticated controller using vector algorithms, virtual pivot point
    • Extensive software support

Reference-class 6-axis positioning system

Parallel-kinematic design for six degrees of freedom making it significantly more compact and stiff than serial-kinematic systems, guidance errors of individual axes do not add up. Higher dynamics, higher reliability.
Driven by DC motors

Powerful digital controller, open software architecture

User-defined, stable pivot point, software-selectable. Positions commanded in Cartesian coordinates. Macro programming.
Open source LabVIEW driver set. Work space simulation software. Virtual Hexapod machine software.
Optional: Collision avoidance software (external obstacles).
H-206.F11 includes C-887.11, 6D vector motion controller plus 2 additional servo axes. Options:

  • Analog interfaces / photometer cards for visible light (F-206.VVU) or the infrared light range (F-206.iiU)
  • F-206.NCU fast piezo nano-alignment system for alignment with nanometer precision

H-206.F12 includes C-887.21 compact 6D vector motion controller

Fields of application

Research and industry. For fiber alignment, micromanipulation systems, optical testing set-ups

* The travel ranges of the individual coordinates (X, Y, Z, θX, θY, θZ) are interdependent. The data for each axis in this table shows its maximum travel, where all other axes are at their zero positions. If the other linear or rotational coordinates are not zero, the available travel may be less.
