October 16, 2019 -- The DRS-206-05-012-01-EX dual rail positioning stage is designed for applications that require long travel distances. It uses a cog-free brushless linear motor to generate a continuous force of 12.4 lbs [55.6 N] and a peak force of 37.4 lbs [167 N] with a total stroke length of 210 in [5341 mm]. The non-contact 1.0-micron resolution encoder allows for positioning. The stage is capable of speeds in excess of 200 ips [5 m/s]. It is guided by dual rigid recirculating ball linear bearings.
The entire stage is assembled on a single piece of aluminum extrusion, thus reducing the overall weight of the system and allowing for long strokes. There are also provisions that allow customer cables to be routed within the cable carrier. It has end-of-travel rubber bumper stops.
