Subnanometer resolution with capacitive sensors

Capacitive sensors measure with subnanometer resolution without contacting. They guarantee excellent linearity of motion, long-term stability, and a bandwidth in the kHz range.

Maximum accuracy due to direct position measuring

Motion is measured directly at the motion platform without any influence from the drive or guide elements. This allows optimum repeatability, outstanding stability, and stiff, fast-responding control.

Extensive software for rapid start of productive operation

Thanks to support of MATLAB and NI LabVIEW as well as all common operating systems (Windows, Linux, and macOS), integration succeeds in virtually every environment – quickly and efficiently. Sophisticated programming examples and software tools such as PIMikroMove shorten the time to productive operation considerably.
