Probe Z and Roll Stage Configurations

The Configuration Table provides guidance for adding motorized stages and probes to NSI scanners.

The Recommended Probe Assembly Table indicates the various configurations of rotary and linear stages available and the largest NSI probe assembly that can be supported by that assembly when attached to a particular NSI scanner. Sometimes the limitation is due to the load carrying capacity of the stage and other times it is the load carrying capacity of the scanner counterweight system.

NSI is always available to assist you in finding the product or information you seek and aiding in its application. New configurations and products are constantly under development, so if you do not find what you are looking for, please contact the sales department; the solution you seek may already exist.
