core of the MT-2000
system is the MT-800 stepper-motor driven X-Y
translation table. The motors are powered by a
two-axis version of the popular MP-285 manipulator
controller. As in the MP-285, the controller and ROE
give the user smooth, high-resolution control of
motion. In addition, the MT-800/2000 controller gives
the user robotic control of movement and a serial
MT-800 motorized translators are currently available
for the Olympus BX-51WI, Nikon E600FN, Zeiss Axioskop
2 FS and the Leica DMLFS.
In the complete system, MT-2000,
the recording chamber and micromanipulators are
mounted on independent columns firmly affixed to the
users vibration isolation table. The chamber column
options are also available.
