2-Axes Motorized Micromanipulator


Manual positioning in x, y, z
Motorized x- and z-axis with 0.1 µm resolution
Control software Profix included
USB plug & play with Profix
Acquires automatic profiles or transects

The micromanipulator MUX2 has been developed for acquiring automized microprofile transects with microsensors. It consists of a compact manual micromanipulator for the x-, y- ,and z-axis, supplemented with high-precision motorized slides (0.1 µm resolution) for the x- and z-axis. The motor controller is integrated in the housing, no external control box is needed. If no computer is connected, the motorized slide can be operated by a control knob integrated on top of the MUX2 housing. The comfortable control software Profix provides an easy way for acquiring 1-dimensional (microprofiles) or 2-dimensional microsensor data (transects). For best operation conditions, the micromanipulator MUX2 should be mounted on the Heavy Stand HS1 from Pyro Science.
