Micro actuator for fiber

Prototype of single optical fiber actuator for large (1000+) arrays to intercept individual star/galaxy images in telescope image plane for spectroscopy analysis. Each actuator covers a 19mm hexagonal area and can move the fiber in that area without interferring with neighboring actuators using R-Theta axis arrangement controlled by miniature stepper gearmotors. Only radial axis shown […]

WL-16R – ROBORAMA.info

WL-16R is controlled by a PC which is mounted on its trunk, without any external support except for the power supply. Each actuator system is equipped with an incremental encoder attached to the motor shaft, and a photo micro sensor attached to each link in order to detect the initial posture. Also each foot is […]
