The positioners in the SLC-17 series are each 17 mm wide and 8.5 mm high. Despite their compactness they are very rigid. They are therefore ideally suited for micro- or nanopositioning systems where stability and high accuracy have first priority.
Despite their small size a position sensor for micro- or nanopositioning tasks can be optionally integrated into each positioner without affecting the positioner's outer dimensions. Due to this high integration the SLC-1720-S is the smallest closed-loop nanopositioner with macroscopic travel on the market.
