Saturn 1B Dual Axis (XY) Optical Scanning System (3mm)
The Saturn 1B is a dual-axis galvanometer-based optical scanning system, using a 3mm aperture mirror set. This system includes two Saturn 1B galvos, the Mach-DSP servo amplifier (driver), protected silver mirrors to accept a 3mm beam, a ±24V power supply, aluminum XY mount, and two scanner cables.
These dual-axis 3mm Saturn 1B optical scanners are capable of scanning as wide as 60° optical peak-to-peak at speeds of up 7.5 kHz small signal bandwidth (ILDA 90K).
Saturn 1B optical scanners are designed to achieve the highest acceleration and RMS performance of any motor-driven-mirror up to 3mm. Using our patented X3 magnetic circuit, Saturn 1B scanners can move faster with less power and heat generation than conventional galvos.
The Mach DSP Servo Driver is a compact digital amplifier with internal memory that provides full, dual-axis control. The Mach DSP Servo Driver accepts both analog and digital (XY2-100) input signals, can store up to four different tunings, and supports PD, PID, PDF, and PDFF servo control laws. The included ScannerMAX GUI software features a built-in oscilloscope, test signal generator, dynamic signal analyzer, and more.
Galvos featuring alternative configurations with different coil resistance, mirror size, mirror coating, galvanometer mount, cable length, digital protocols (FB4) and more are available for custom order through our Quote Form.
Typical applications for Saturn 1B systems include small-beam optical coherence tomography (OCT), confocal microscopy, small-beam laser marking, and image/template projection.
