The Compact-506 is a galvanometer-based optical scanning system, intended for applications where small package size, low cost, and light-weight are paramount concerns. Although the Compact-506 is very small, it is built upon our VRAD-506 actuator platform, and features a very strong construction and 6mm bearings. This construction allows the Compact-506 galvo to move small mirrors, as well as large mirrors (up to 1-inch in diameter) very easily, without a notch ﬁlter in the servo.
High-Performance, Affordable Price
For clients who need a high-performance optical scanning system at an affordable price, the Compact-506 is an ideal solution. The low coil resistance allows it to achieve exceptionally fast scan speeds, without producing excess heat inside the galvo. And our patented position sensor design produces ten times the signal-to-noise ratio, offering client’s exceptionally high-quality motion. The Compact-506 provides performance on-par with the most expensive conventional optical scanning systems, at a price point that is one-tenth the cost.
In addition, to help make it even more cost-effective, we have built this galvo in such a way, that it work work with a third-party servo-ampliﬁer. This helps bring the overall cost of a complete scanning system down dramatically. If you have an existing servo-ampliﬁer design, we can offer you the Compact-506 galvos by themselves, and work with you to modify your existing ampliﬁer, so that you will get the maximum performance from the Compact-506.
