New Scale

Accelerate Photonics Instrument Design
with Embedded Motion

New Scale brings you the smallest, most precise closed-loop positioning solutions available. M3 Smart Modules with built-in controllers are easy to integrate into handheld and portable instruments. Create smaller, smarter imaging systems, scientific instruments, medical devices, and more. Get your product to market faster with the lowest total cost.

M3-LS Linear and M3-RS Rotary Stages can be assembled into multi-axis motion systems. With a controller embedded in each stage, these systems eliminate the need for bulky external control boards. They deliver the smallest system size and fastest integration for precision, closed loop motion in two or three axes. Controller: Embedded in stage

Focus Modules


M3-F and M3-FS Focus Modules are designed to take up the same space as a lens mount, but integrate high-precision motorized focal or zoom for optics in tiny OEM cameras.
Controller: Embedded in focus module

Beam Steering Kits


M3-Beam Steering Systems provide high-precision point-to-point beam steering the smallest possible space.
Controller: Embedded in module

What's Inside An M3 Module? 


The M3 platform

Smart modules and microstages built on the M3 (micro-mechatronics) platform incoporate:

  • A SQUIGGLE or UTAF piezoelectric micro motor
  • A motor driver ASIC
  • A position sensor (encoder)
  • An on-board microprocessor for PID control
  • A customized motion guide assembly and housing to suit your OEM application

You provide simple motion commands over a standard serial interface. It’s all inside!
