  How to modify common drivers, for use with Compact-506 galvos

Product Overview

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 Compact-506’s 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 the Compact-506 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.

Purchasing Options

The Compact-506 galvo is available in two versions: Standard and AW50. The AW50 version has lower coil impedance, which offers better bandwidth and step response when used with servo drivers capable of delivering higher current. The differences are discussed further, inside of the product’s datasheet. The Compact-506 is also available with different mirror and mounting options, and it can be sold as an XY pair, or as a single-axis galvo.
