Linear actuator

Unread postby jdaniel » 11.07.2012 13:21

I have been using the demo version of Helicon with an inspection microscope for the past few weeks now and have had great results!
I am now looking at automating the stack acquisition. I currently have access to a range of linear positioners and wonder if it is possible to interface these with Helicon?

Falling that I wonder if anyone could recommend an alternative linear actuator for this purpose, has anyone else found an easy to interface with a microscope? I have looked at slackshoot but the positioning system is too bulky for the job.

Sorry, these actuators are not supported. You may look for gear based on Trinamic stepper motors, that may work.
