High Precision Positioner/Scanner for Microscope Objectives

The P-725 PIFOC® is a high-precision, long travel objective scanner for applications involving biotechnology, autofocus systems, semiconductor testing, confocal microscopy, 3D imaging, disc-drive testing, screening, metrology, and interferometry.

P-725 PIFOC® Positioner/Objective Scanner Features:

  • Travel Ranges to 460 µm
  • Significantly Faster Response and Higher Lifetime than Motorized Z-Stages
  • Scans and Positions Objectives with Sub-nm Resolution
  • Direct Metrology with Capacitive Sensors for Highest Linearity
  • Parallel Precision Flexure Guiding for Better Focus Stability
  • Compatible with MetaMorph Imaging Software
  • Outstanding Lifetime Due to PICMA® Piezo Actuators
  • QuickLock Adapter for Easy Attachment
  • Clear Aperture up to 29 mm Ø

Several different models in this line are available, with varying open and closed-loop travel, X/Y cross talk, resonant frequency, electrical capacitance, and more. Download the datasheet for more information.
