HSE-HAI Microdrive 864/1
Based on the motorized X-axis of the HSE-HAI DC-3K micromanipulator.
- Resolution down to 2 µm
- Powered by the HSE Microdrive Controller
- Enables remotely controlled displacement of microelectrodes or capillaries for intracellular potential recording, patch clamp experiments, and stereotaxic investigations in the brain
The HSE-HAI Microdrive 864/1 represents a complete alternative to hydraulic microdrives which have become very expensive. The mechanism is based on a conventional micrometer screw with a displacement of 10 mm. The micrometer scale is visible and permits reading to 10 µm. The drive is powered by a flange-mounted DC motor with gearbox. The micrometer drive slider moves on a precision crossed-roller guide.
The excellent rolling properties of the guide ensure absence of sticking and sliding friction, therefore there is no stick-slip effect, making this design ideally suitable for precision displacement systems. The micrometer drive is mounted via its back through a 7 mm dia. mounting bolt parallel to the working axis.
This unit is powered by the HSE-HAI Microdrive controller.
