Newport ESA-C uDrive Controller

Minimum orders of $250 or additional low order fee may apply for this category of products.

ESA-C is in-stock and pricing (USD) will be available in quote.



The Newport ESA-C U-Drive controller is Newports most advanced controller for their Ultra-Resolution Electrostrictive Actuators, such as the AD-100, AD-30, and ESA-1330. With these actuators, this controller gives you the ability to locate your stages with sub-micron accuracy. The Newport ESA-C controls from one to three actuators, using the front panel dials or by the GPIB interface on the back. The speed at which the actuators work are also easily controlled by this unit.
