A miniature closed-loop linear motion module provides 0.5-µm position resolution and a typical travel range of 6 mm. The M3-L Micro-Mechatronics module integrates a control system and actuator in a package measuring less than 27.5 × 13 × 7.5 mm. The module is suitable for use in fluidics and valve controls, in precision photonics and optical controls, and in microsurgical manipulation. It can be configured for pushing or pulling loads. Running on 3.3-V input for battery-powered operation, the module draws approximately 500 mW of power while in motion and 200 mW in a quiescent state. Its standard serial interface accepts PID closed-loop system-tuning parameters.
