PP series

Linear and rotary motion
High-performance magnetically-coupled combined linear/rotary devices, designed for sample transfer.

Both linear and rotary motion of the sample achieved via a single actuator with stroke length from 304mm to 1524mm.

The PowerProbe provides both linear and rotary motion of the sample, via a single actuator.

Key features

  • Unrivalled axial coupling strength
  • 4x torque compared to conventional devices
  • Exceptional axial stiffness
  • Zero backlash under low load
  • Bakeable to 250ºC without removing any components

The PowerProbe’s powerful magnetic coupling technology provides performance far in advance of conventional probes on the market avoiding magnetic hysteresis and de-coupling issues suffered by traditional designs.
The high torque characteristics are achieved by utilising MagiDrive rotary coupling technology.

Combined with a high thrust linear coupling, this ensures optimum drive performance on both axes. Therefore, actuation of the thimble in either axis will result in the precise transmission of this motion to the sample.
The PowerProbe can be fitted with a bakeable limit switch for the retracted position, aiding system interlocks.
