H-810 6-Axis Miniature Hexapod

High Precision in a Small Package

PI H-810
Most compact standard Hexapod in the PI portfolio
Travel ranges to 40 mm / 60°
Load capacity to 5 kg
Actuator resolution 40 nm
Min. incremental motion to 0.5 µm
Repeatability to ±0.1 µm
Velocity to 2.5 mm/s
Works in any orientation
Sophisticated controller using vector algorithms, virtual pivot point
Comprehensive software package

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, higher dynamic range, no moved cables: Higher reliability, reduced friction

 

Direct drive with brushless DC motors (BLDC) and long-life ball screws

High precision, velocity and lifetime

 

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).

Hexapods are by default configured and delivered as a system including a controller

  • C-887.52 compact bench-top controller for a lower system price. Digital I/O interfaces, e.g. for external triggering
  • C-887.11 19" controller, comprises the control for two additional single axes with servo motors. Options: Control of piezo axes, photometer cards for visible light or infrared light range

 

Upgrades for C-887.11 (order separately)

  • Analog interface/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

 

Accessories

  • C-887.MC manual control unit for Hexapods, USB, 3 m cable
  • C-887.VM1 PIVeriMove software for collision checking

* 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.
