OWIS® Elevator Stages HV(M) 100N: manual and motorised versions optimised
June 22, 2017
The OWIS® elevator stages of the series HVM are characterised by a low construction and a high repeatability.
They are universally suitable for a wide range of applications, for example industrial ones but equally in research and development.
The new motorised elevator stages HVM 100N are the result of a comprehensive revision. This is evident not only in a modern design but also in the technical equipment of the HVM 100N. This has been optimised and adapted to the latest standards. The repeatability of < 6 μm and the high load capacity of 150 N are still the outstanding features of the HVM 100N. A practically slip-stick free movement over the entire travel distance of 30 mm is ensured by preloaded guides.
For a standardised connection, both versions with step motor as well as with DC servo motor are now equipped with the same 26-pin connector. The OWIS® control units automatically recognise which type of motor is used. Furthermore, HVM stages equipped with mechanical limit switches are now available as standard version.
The optimisation concerns not only the motorised version but also the manual elevator stages HV 100N which are additionally equipped with clamping. In the course of the revision of both versions it was ensured that a high quality product still can be obtained at an attractive price-performance ratio.
Of course, the elevator stages can be mounted with all OWIS® positioners to multi-axis combinations. Vacuum-prepared versions are available on request. As all OWIS® products, the HV 100N and HVM 100N are designed and produced “Made in Germany”.
