Saturn 5B Dual Axis (XY) Optical Scanning System (5mm)
The Saturn 5B is a dual-axis galvanometer-based optical scanning system, using a 5mm aperture mirror set. This system includes two Saturn 5B galvos, the Mach-DSP servo amplifier (driver), protected silver mirrors to accept a 5mm beam, a ±24V power supply, aluminum XY mount, and two scanner cables.
These dual-axis 5mm Saturn 5B optical scanners are capable of scanning as wide as 60° optical peak-to-peak at speeds of up to 5 kHz small signal bandwidth (ILDA 60K).
Saturn 5B optical scanners are specifically designed to meet the high acceleration and high RMS duty cycle demands of projection and imaging applications. Using our patented X3 magnetic circuit, Saturn 5B 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 5B include optical coherence tomography (OCT), confocal microscopy, laser marking, and image/template projection.
