XY Axis Resolution (encoder step): 22nm
XY Axis RMS Repeatability: <700nm (typical)
XY Axis Maximum Velocity: 7mm/sec
Z Axis Range of Travel: 50mm
Z Axis Resolution (encoder step): 5.5nm
- Z Axis RMS Repeatability: <200nm
Z Axis Maximum Velocity: 1.75mm/sec

The LX-4000 controller contains the same driver electronics as the MS-2000, but without the user interface joystick. Controlling the LX-4000 through the RS-232 serial port is similar to the command language used by the MS-2000 with a slot number added since the LX-4000 contains 3 separate controllers. This is intended to be embedded in a computer controlled apparatus, but can be used manually with the provided software which acts as a virtual joystick.

"The MS-2000 is a compact XY stage that fits very well on smaller upright
microscopes such as Leica's DML-series, Nikon's Optiphot, E400, and
E600, Olympus' BH-2, BX50, and BX51, and Zeiss' Universal and Axiolab.
The MS-2000 also works very well as stand-alone stage for XY
The MS-2000 has been specifically designed to provide a high resolution, and highly repeatable, means of controlling the X and Y position of a microscope stage. All axes derive their precise control through the use of closed-loop DC servomotors employing high-resolution rotary encoders for positioning feedback. By using closed-loop control of the stage position, there is no chance that the stage will become lost, as can occur with open-loop micro-stepped stages after a number of moves and direction changes. The MS-2000 XY stage utilizes crossed-roller slides, a high-precision lead screw, and zero-backlash miniature geared DC servomotors for smooth and accurate motion. The microprocessor-controlled control unit provides for RS-232 communication with a host computer."
Please note that this listing does not include a microscope adapter or slide holder. You will probably have to fabricate an adapter to fit this to your microscope. Click here to see a list of slide holders and other inserts available from ASI which can be used with this stage.
