Description

The Compact-506 is a galvanometer-based optical scanning system designed to be small package sized, low-cost, light weight and versatile. It is particularly suited for applications such as 3D printers, LIDAR systems, portable displays and handheld medical devices. The construction allows the Compact-506 galvo to move small mirrors as well as unusually large mirrors, beyond 1 inch in diameter, without a notch filter in the servo or a complicated servo loop.

Features of the Compact-506 Series

    • The Compact-506 optical scanner has a very low coil resistance that allows it to achieve exceptionally fast speeds without production excess heat inside the galvo.
    • Our patented position sensor design produces ten times the signal-to-noise ratio thus offering exceptionally high-quality motion.
    • It is available in two separate configurations: one that is compatible with conventional analog servo drivers; and one that is compatible with our MachDSP digital servo driver that offers better linearity.
    • When power is removed, the mirror is restored to a central position due to magnetic-spring-return action.

In addition to the MachDSP servo driver, the Compact-506 galvo will work with third-party servo drivers. Our engineering team can provide assistance in modifying your existing driver design to work with Compact-506, further reducing the cost of the overall scanning system.
