Micromanipulator MU1

  • Manual positioning in x, y, z
  • Motorized z-axis with 0.1 µm resolution
  • Software Profix included for microprofiling applications
  • USB plug & play with Profix
  • No external control box needed
  • Upgrade option to MUX2 for automized transects

The micromanipulator MU1 enables automized microprofile measurements with microsensors. It consists of a compact manual micromanipulator for the x-, y- ,and z-axis, supplemented with a high-precision motorized slide (0.1 µm resolution) for the z-axis. The motor controller is integrated in the housing, no external control box is needed. The versatile control software Profix for automized microprofiling is included. If no computer is connected, the motor can be operated by a control knob integrated on top of the MU1 housing. For best operation conditions, the micromanipulator MU1 should be mounted on the Heavy Stand HS1 from PyroScience. The MU1 can easily be upgraded to the Micromanipulator MUX2, which additionally provides a motorized x-axis for automized measurements of microprofile transects.
