Built for life. The ATS115 linear motion guide bearing system has speeds to 300 mm/s and travels to 600 mm. Side seals keep dirt and pariculates out of the stage to protect bearing surfaces from contamination. The seals are also vertically oriented, deflecting debris away from the stage. The aluminum hard cover is hard coated for scratch resistance.
The ATS115 has a NEMA 23 flange-mounting interface for attachment of a wide variety of Aerotech and third-party motors. Aerotech can provide brush, brushless, and stepper motors preconfigured and mounted directly to the stage for integration with Aerotech controls. Or the stage can be purchased without the motor for the attachment of third-party motors.
The mounting holes in the ATS115 base are accessible from the outside of the stage for ease of integration. The cover does not have to be removed when mounting the stage to a bread-board or when attaching multiple stages together in an X/Y/Z system. The tabletop is available with both metric and English hole patterns and can be ordered withbrush attachments to clear debris that may collect on the hard cover. Tabletops with hole patterns that allow the direct attachment of Aerotech’s ADRS and ACS-LP series low profile direct-drive rotary stages are available..
Configuration Options Aerotech’s BMS series brushless, slotless servomotor with square-wave encoder output provides a net resolution of 0.5 micron. An optional analog output encoder can be coupled with external interpolation electronics to provide higher resolution. A holding brake can be added to the motor for vertical applications. A motor fold-back kit is available for space-constrained applications to reduce the overall stage length.
