Fast and high-precision drives

The basis of the fiber alignment system is a very stiff set-up with an H-811 hexapod and a P-616 NanoCube® nanopositioner. The parallel-kinematic design for motion in six degrees of freedom ensures high system stiffness. The motorized drives make long travel ranges possible and at the same time, the NanoCube® nanopositioner allows fast scanning motion und dynamic compensation of drift effects. Flexure guides and all-ceramic PICMA® actuators guarantee a long lifetime. Because all drives are equipped with position sensors, the system works precisely and reliable with high repeatability.

High-performance scan routines

The sophisticated scan routines are integrated directly into the controller, which considerably improves the performance and simplifies integration. The system can manage all tasks in the field of fiber alignment. The integrated rotational scans enable fiber arrays to be optimized on all channels very easily.

Extensive software package

The software package supplied in the scope of delivery allows integration of the system into virtually any environment. All common operating systems such as Windows, Linux, and OS X as well as a large number of common programming languages including MATLAB and LabVIEW are supported. Thanks to sophisticated program examples and the use of software tools such as PIMikroMove, the time between starting integrating and productive operation is shortened considerably.

High-resolution analog input

The controller receives the optical intensity signal directly via a high-resolution analog input. Complex set-ups with cameras are not necessary. Various distribution functions are available for determining the maximum intensity.

Application fields

Alignment of optical components and parts, assembling technology in silicon photonics, packaging.
