Thorlabs' DDSM100 low-profile, direct-drive stage provides 100 mm of travel with 0.5 µm resolution and a maximum speed of 500 mm/s. The stage is ideal for applications that require high speeds and high positioning accuracy, including automated alignment, surface inspection, mapping, and probing.

An innovative, low-profile design with integrated, brushless linear motors eliminates the external housings that create mechanical clash points and impede access to the moving platform. The direct-drive technology removes the need for a lead screw, eliminating backlash, and internal flexible ducting ensures cables cannot become trapped as the mechanism moves. A precision-grooved linear bearing provides superior rigidity and linearity with excellent on-axis accuracy. This backlash-free operation coupled with high-resolution, closed-loop optical feedback ensures a minimal bidirectional repeatability of ±1.5 μm.

Controller
The controller for the DDSM100 direct-drive, linear translation stage is the KBD101 K-Cube Brushless DC Motor Controller. This controller provides a user-configurable, S-curve acceleration/deceleration profile that enables fast, smooth positioning without vibration or shock. See below for a brief overview, or see the full web presentation for these Brushless DC Motor Controllers.

Dual-Axis Configuration
For dual-axis applications, two stages can be bolted together in an XY configuration by using the DDSMP1 XY adapter plate as shown to the left. Note that these stages are not suitable for operation in a vertical (Z-axis) orientation. Please contact Tech Support for more details.

Adapter brackets are also available that allow optomechanical components to be mounted close to the linear travel of the stage in applications such as a delay line.
Please see below for more details.

Please Note: When no power is applied, the platform of the stage has very little inertia and is virtually free running. This may make the stage unsuitable for applications where the stage's platform needs to remain in a set position when power is off.

Response from Ben at Thorlabs: Thank you for your question here. Please see page.14 of the DDSM100 manual. Here we list Recommended Position Loop PID Parameters & instruction for how these can be optimised based on observable characteristics of motion. http://www.thorlabs.de/thorcat/23100/DDSM100-Manual.pdf Further reference to Position & Current Loop parameters can be found on pg. 48-52 in the TBD001 manual. https://www.thorlabs.com/thorcat/23100/TBD001-Manual.pdf

Hi, I have a question about TBD001 brushless servo controller and DDSM100 translation stage used together. The default PID settings are not working (the stage is not loaded yet, I plan to use it with less than 250g on it) and I was wondering if there are tables of appropriate settings ? Thank you in advance.

A response from Tor at Thorlabs to rbjaculbia: Thank you for your interest in our Direct Drive Stages! For THz-TDS spectroscopy applications, we recommend our Delay Line Kit (http://www.thorlabs.com/NewGroupPage9.cfm?ObjectGroup_ID=5521). The DDS220 used in this kit offers repeatable delay shifts of 0.67 fs; the theoretical sensitivity would be 3.3 fs, given the resolution of the DDSM100. Please contact techsupport@thorlabs.com if you would like more details.

Hi, We are looking to use this as a delay line for THz-TDS spectroscopy. Will this be viable? Thank you.

100 mm Linear Translation Stage, Direct-Drive Servo Motor

Characterized by high-speed translation and high-positional accuracy, the DDSM100 stage is well-suited for surface mapping and characterization applications where there is a need to move a camera or probe at constant velocity while simultaneously capturing data. Very precise, fine positioning and control is easily achieved through a combination of the stable closed-loop control system and a KBD101 controller.

Please Note: When no power is applied, the platform of the stage has very little inertia and is virtually free running. This may make the stage unsuitable for applications where the stage's platform needs to remain in a set position when power is off.

DDSM100 Adapter Plates

For 2-axis applications, two DDSM100 stages can be bolted together in an XY configuration using the DDSMP1 adapter plate as shown above in the Overview tab.

The DDSMA1 and DDSMA2 adapter plates attach to the end of the DDSM100 stage using the two supplied M3 x 20 screws (see image to the right) and allow optomechanical components to be mounted close to the linear travel of the stage in applications such as a delay line. The plates are drilled and tapped with six 1/4”-20 (M6) and five 8-32 (M4) holes.
