Courtesy: AerotechAerotech’s Ensemble QLe panel-mount nanopostioning piezo drive for coordinated motion between piezo stages and servo axes is designed for applications ranging from demanding scientific research to advanced original equipment manufacturer (OEM) machine systems. This drive is designed for seamless use with the Ensemble family of drives and controllers. The QLe connects to any Ensemble controller network enabling coordinated motion between piezo stages and servo axes at high rates.

The QLe drives provide processing power over a wide variety of applications including point-to-point motion, linear and circular interpolation, multi-axis error correction, and autofocusing. The QLe offers high-speed position latching capability and multi-axis position synchronized output (PSO) for generation of pulses based on actual position feedback in applications ranging from laser firing to data acquisition system triggering. For precise applications, the QLe has an 18-bit analog input that can be programmatically configured to accept an external feedback sense or position command. The analog input allows the high-voltage power amplifier to be controlled directly by an external low-level analog input. The QLe has one 20-bit analog output that can be programmatically configured for positions or voltage monitoring at high resolutions.
