The Compact-506 is a galvanometer-based optical scanning system designed to be small package sized, low-cost, light weight and versatile galvo scanner. 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 speed 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.
- Built into the design, the mirror position is restored to a central rotation angle when power is removed, due to a magnetic-spring-return action.
All though we offer our own servo drivers, the Compact-506 galvo will work with a third-party servo-amplifier. This helps bring the overall cost of a complete galvo system down dramatically. If you have an existing servo-amplifier or wish to incorporate your own design as part of your product, we can offer you the Compact-506 galvos by themselves and work with you to incorporate your existing design.
