High Velocity, Medium Load, Affordable

PI H-840
    • Load capacity to 30 kg
    • Travel ranges to 100 mm / 60°
    • Actuator resolution to 16 nm
    • Repeatability to ±0.4 µm
    • MTBF 20,000 h
    • Velocity to 50 mm/s
    • Works in any orientation
    • Rapid response
    • Sophisticated controller using vector algorithms, virtual pivot point
    • Extensive software support

Precision-class 6-axis system

Parallel-kinematic design for six degrees of freedom making it significantly more compact and stiff than serial-kinematic systems, higher dynamic range, no moved cables: Higher reliability, reduced friction

Drive variants

H-840.G1x with DC gear motors
H-840.D1x with powerful DC motors for higher velocity

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-840.xx1 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-840.xx2 includes C-887.21 compact 6D vector motion controller

Fields of application

Research and industry. For micromanipulation, laser and optics alignment, biotechnology, tool control

* 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.
