Aerotech’s MPS75SLE is a compact, high-performance linear positioning stage offering the benefits of direct measurement feedback via a linear encoder. The MPS75SLE is the ideal high-accuracy stage for applications in optics positioning, z-axis positioning of sensors in surface metrology, or high-precision alignment. Multi-axis stage configurations can easily be assembled with other MPS linear and rotary stages using the multitude of adapter brackets and mounting compatibility inherent in the entire MPS stage family.
The precision ground, preloaded ball-screw coupled with the linear encoder provide outstanding accuracy, repeatability and a positioning resolution capability to 25 nm. The anti-creep crossed-roller bearings provide exceptionally smooth travel and high-load capacity in a compact package.
Unlike competitive designs using steel (13 ppm/˚C) or glass scales with 8 ppm/˚C thermal expansion coefficients, the MPS75SLE is available with a low thermal expansion (3.3 ppm/˚C) precision glass scale allowing for high-accuracy and repeatable positioning over long periods of time. The linear encoder is available with amplified sine (1 Vpp) or 50 nm TTL digital outputs allowing for easy integration with all standard controllers.
The MPS75SLE motor options include a DC servomotor with a high-resolution rotary encoder or a stepper motor. Just like the MPS75SL, the SLE is available with and without optional bellows waycovers.
An optional mounting plate provides direct mounting to both English and metric optical breadboards. The inherent mounting compatibility of all MPS stages allows for simple mounting in multi-axis arrangements.

Aerotech offers both standard and custom integration services to help you get your system fully operational as quickly as possible. The following standard integration options are available for this system. Please consult Aerotech if you are unsure what level of integration is required, or if you desire custom integration support with your system.
|-TAS||Integration - Test as system
Testing, integration, and documentation of a group of components as a complete system that will be used together (ex: drive, controller, and stage). This includes parameter file generation, system tuning, and documentation of the system configuration.
|-TAC||Integration - Test as components
Testing and integration of individual items as discrete components that ship together. This is typically used for spare parts, replacement parts, or items that will not be used together. These components may or may not be part of a larger system.
