PD1(/M) Stage Features

Features

  • Compact Stainless Steel Stage with Piezo Inertia Drive
  • Ideal for OEMs and Set-and-Hold Applications that Require Relative Positioning with High Resolutions
  • XY Stackable Using Counterbores and Included Dowel Pins in Base
  • Vertical Mounting using Right-Angle Bracket Adapter
  • Requires the KIM101 Piezo Inertia Controller (Sold Separately Below)

Thorlabs' PD1(/M) Piezoelectric Inertia Drive Stage provides fast and stable piezo-controlled linear motion control in a compact package. This open-loop stage can support loads up to 3 kg and operate at speeds up to 3 mm/s with no backlash. The piezo inertia drive is self-locking when the stage is at rest and no power is supplied to the piezo, making these actuators ideal for set-and-hold applications that require micrometer resolution and long-term alignment stability.

Load Mounting Options
The load can be secured to the stage's moving platform using four 2-56 (M2) threaded holes or six 8-32 (M4) threaded holes (as shown in the photo above). Alternatively, the PD1T(/M) and PD1U(/M) top plate adapters (sold separately below) provide alternative mounting hole patterns for the top plate of the stage. The load can also be aligned using the array of six Ø2 mm, 1.5 mm deep dowel pin holes. Ensure that the maximum insertion depth of these holes is not exceeded or else the stage may be damaged. For more information, please refer to the Specs tab or the support documents accessible through the red Support Docs () icons below. 

Stage Mounting Options
The mounting counterbores are accessible when the moving plate is translated to the ends of the travel range. There are two mounting options: two 2-56 (M2) screws on the corners with 0.35 N·m recommended torque or 8-32 (M4) screws on the ends with 0.55 N·m recommended torque. We offer the TD75 torque driver for tightening to a specific torque value.

The stage should be mounted on an even surface with recommended flatness ≤5 μm. If the stage is mounted on a surface with >5 µm flatness (as with most breadboards and optical tables), the mounting torque may need to be decreased in order for the velocity variation and pitch/yaw of the stage to meet specifications. If needed, the PD1B(/M) mounting adapter provides a mounting surface with precise flatness to avoid warping the stage when mounting it to a table surface.

The PD1Z(/M) right-angle bracket adapter allows the stage to be mounted vertically on top of another stage for an XZ or XYZ configuration. Note that when the stage is mounted vertically, the load capacity is greatly reduced.

Required Controller
The KIM101 Controller, available below, is required to operate this stage; the piezo inertia drive cannot be driven using a standard piezo controller. The controller must be the 2019 or newer version and revision 010003 or higher firmware. Earlier versions of the KIM101 controller or those with older firmware will not function properly and may cause failure of the stage and/or the controller. The previous-generation TIM101 controller is not compatible.

Inertia Motor Operation

Simplified Illustration Showing the Operation of the Piezo Inertia Drive
Inertia Motor Operation
The "stick-slip" cycle consists of a slow piezo expansion and a fast piezo contraction.

Piezoelectric Inertia "Stick-Slip" Motor

The piezo inertia motor consists of three main parts: a flexure-coupled piezo actuator, a friction element, and a slider (the moving platform). During the "stick" part of a cycle, the piezo slowly expands under the ramp voltage, pushing the friction element and the slider forward in unison. During the "slip" part, the drive voltage drops rapidly and the piezo element returns to its starting length, with the friction element "slipping" backward. The slider does not move due to its inertia and the low coefficient of kinetic friction between the friction element and the bottom surface of the slider. The graph to the right shows the piezo drive voltage during one "stick-slip" cycle.

Repeating this cycle produces continuous forward travel of the slider. For travel in the reverse direction, the opposite drive voltage pattern is required, resulting in rapid piezo expansion and slower piezo contraction, or "slip-stick". During operation, the stage makes a high pitch noise and may generate some heat. This is normal behavior in the performance of the device and does not indicate a fault condition.

Due to a number of factors that include the application conditions, piezo hysteresis, component variance, and the axial load, the achieved step size will vary and is not repeatable. To help overcome this variance, an external feedback system will be necessary.

Thorlabs offers two platforms to drive our wide range of motion controllers: our Kinesis® software package or the legacy APT™ (Advanced Positioning Technology) software package. Either package can be used to control devices in the Kinesis family, which covers a wide range of motion controllers ranging from small, low-powered, single-channel drivers (such as the K-Cubes™ and T-Cubes™) to high-power, multi-channel, modular 19" rack nanopositioning systems (the APT Rack System).

The Kinesis Software features .NET controls which can be used by 3rd party developers working in the latest C#, Visual Basic, LabVIEW™, or any .NET compatible languages to create custom applications. Low-level DLL libraries are included for applications not expected to use the .NET framework. A Central Sequence Manager supports integration and synchronization of all Thorlabs motion control hardware.

Kinesis Software
Kinesis GUI Screen
APT Software
APT GUI Screen

Our legacy APT System Software platform offers ActiveX-based controls which can be used by 3rd party developers working on C#, Visual Basic, LabVIEW™, or any Active-X compatible languages to create custom applications and includes a simulator mode to assist in developing custom applications without requiring hardware.

By providing these common software platforms, Thorlabs has ensured that users can easily mix and match any of the Kinesis and APT controllers in a single application, while only having to learn a single set of software tools. In this way, it is perfectly feasible to combine any of the controllers from single-axis to multi-axis systems and control all from a single, PC-based unified software interface.

The software packages allow two methods of usage: graphical user interface (GUI) utilities for direct interaction with and control of the controllers 'out of the box', and a set of programming interfaces that allow custom-integrated positioning and alignment solutions to be easily programmed in the development language of choice.

A range of video tutorials is available to help explain our APT system software. These tutorials provide an overview of the software and the APT Config utility. Additionally, a tutorial video is available to explain how to select simulator mode within the software, which allows the user to experiment with the software without a controller connected. Please select the APT Tutorials tab above to view these videos, which are also available on the software CD included with the controllers.

LabVIEW
LabVIEW can be used to communicate with any Kinesis- or APT-based controller via .NET controls. In LabVIEW, you build a user interface, known as a front panel, with a set of tools and objects and then add code using graphical representations of functions to control the front panel objects. The LabVIEW tutorial, provided below, provides some information on using the .NET controls to create control GUIs for Kinesis- and APT-driven devices within LabVIEW. It includes an overview with basic information about using controllers in LabVIEW and explains the setup procedure that needs to be completed before using a LabVIEW GUI to operate a device.

  • Mounts PD1(/M) Stage at 90° for Vertical or Horizontal Translation
  • Connects Multiple PD1(/M) Stages for 2-Axis or 3-Axis Configuration
  • Two 2-56 (M2) Mounting Screws Included

The PD1Z(/M) right-angle bracket allows the user to mount a PD1(/M) linear stage in a vertical orientation for XZ or XYZ applications. It can be secured to the top plate of the stage using two 2-56 (M2) cap screws in the mounting counterbores near the corners. The vertical stage can be mounted on the bracket using the two included 2-56 (M2) cap screws in the mounting counterbores near the corners. Four Ø2 mm dowel pin holes are located on each face for precise alignment.

The piezo stage can be mounted on the right-angle bracket for either vertical or horizontal translation. The PD1T(/M) or PD1U(/M) adapter plate can also be mounted directly to the bracket.

When the PD1(/M) is mounted for vertical translation, the load capacity is reduced to 100 g.

Note that in an XYZ configuration, the locking plate of the bottom stage may interfere with the translation range of the vertical stage. Simply remove the locking plate to achieve the full range of translation in all three dimensions.

K-Cube™ Four-Channel Piezo Inertia Actuator Controller

  • Compact Footprint (121.0 mm x 60.0 mm x 47.0 mm)
  • Adjustable Voltage Output from 85 V to 125 V
  • Four Independent Output Channels
  • Capable of Single- or Dual-Channel Operation
  • Standalone Operation via Top Panel Controls and Display or PC Control via USB Plug and Play

This K-Cube Controller is a compact, four-channel controller for easy manual and PC control of our piezoelectric inertia actuators. It is capable of single- or dual-channel operation and has an adjustable voltage output from 85 V to 125 V. The top panel display screen enables operation as soon as the unit is turned on, without the need for connection to a PC. Alternatively, USB connectivity provides easy 'Plug-and-Play' PC-controlled operation with two available software platforms: our new Kinesis® software package or our legacy APT™ (Advanced Positioning Technology) software package. The controller can be configured to operate up to four PD1(/M) stages or up to four piezo inertia actuators. One controller cannot be used to concurrently drive stages and actuators.

The unit has a very small 121.0 mm x 60.0 mm x 47.0 mm (4.76" x 2.36" x 1.85") footprint and may be mounted directly to the optical table using the 1/4" (M6) counterbored slots in the base plate. This compact size allows the controller to be positioned close to the motorized system for added convenience when manually adjusting motor positions using the top panel controls. Tabletop operation also allows minimal drive cable lengths for easier cable management.

Note: When used with the PD1(/M) stage, the KIM101 controller version must be 2019 or newer (per the S/N label) with a firmware revision of 010003 or higher (indicated when the controller is powered on). Earlier versions of the KIM101 controller or those with older firmware will not function properly with a PD1(/M) stage and may cause failure of the stage and/or the controller.

For more information, please see the full web presentation.

Operation
Set the stage configuration on the KIM101 controller to "PD(R)" before driving this stage. Use the joystick and menu button, select the "Set Stage" option and change it from "PIA" to "PD(R)", then restart the controller. The display will show "Stage is PD(R)" and the configuration will be changed to drive the PD1(/M) stage. See the KIM101 controller manual for additional front panel configuration details. The controller features four channels that can be operated individually or in pairs, making the controller ideal for applications that require multiple motorized axes. The driver has an internal sawtooth voltage signal generator capable of sending sub-millisecond pulses (steps) with controllable amplitudes from 85 V to 125 V. Each stage has an integrated 1.0 m cable; 1.5 m SMC extension cables (Item # PAA101) and male-to-male SMC adapters (item # T5026) are also available. Please note that, due to the capacitance of the cables, the total length of the control cable should not exceed 2.5 m.

Power Supply Options
The preferred power supply for the KIM101 controller depends on the end user's application and whether you already own compatible power supplies. To that end and in keeping with Thorlabs' green initiative, we do not ship these units bundled with a power supply. This avoids the cost and inconvenience of receiving an unwanted single channel supply if a multi-channel or hub-based system would be more appropriate. The power supply options compatible with the KIM101 Piezo Inertia Controller are listed in the section below.
