New Scale Technologies announces that developer’s kits for
its miniature M3-L closed-loop linear motion module are available for purchase
online, shipping from stock. Each kit includes an M3-L module for precision
closed-loop linear motion, along with a USB adapter and New Scale Pathway
software for easy evaluation and prototyping. Configured for I2C or SPI serial
interface, the modules in the developer’s kits are offered with a bullet nose
for pushing and a hook tip for pulling loads up to approximately 0.2 Newtons. Standard travel
is 6.0 mm.
Each M3-L module is an integrated micro-mechatronics system,
incorporating a piezoelectric SQUIGGLE micro motor, position sensor, driver,
and microprocessor in a compact 27.5 x 13 x 7.5 mm housing. No external control
board is necessary.
