General measuring technique
optical 3D measuring technique
is the most compact positioning controller in this power class worldwide. Its application in domains like microscopy and precision positioning provides an indication of the performance data of this controller: high resolution, low power dissipation, high constant velocity with low running noise.
Pollux is a positioning controller. Two positioning modes are possible: a given absolute or relative position or a given velocity and direction.
The axis modules are equipped with a 16 bit DSP that can compute position input down to 1nm. After that, the signal is transformed into a rotor angle.
The program-controlled operation is realised via the command language Venus-2
To support the software developer, a free API (function library) with different sample programs is available. It supports all functions of the controller.
We provide the program "motion manager" to operate the controller.
