multi-functional piezo controller for driving attocube's closed loop positioners

The ANC350 is attocube’s multi-functional piezo controller which meets the highly demanding dynamic performance and accuracy requirements of multi-axis nanopositioning setups. Dedicated controller models for driving either positioners with resistive encoders (ANC350/RES) or positioners with optoelectronic encoders (ANC350/NUM) are available in a three-axes version. Open loop positioners can be controlled in closed loop mode in combination with the ANC350/FPS and attocube’s FPS1010, FPS3010, FPS3010-19" setups.
