MT-2000 Mounting System

MT-2000 Motorized X-Y Translator/System for Fixed-Stage Microscopes

The MT-2000 is a motorized microscope translator system including fixed-stage and manipulator supports. The modular design of the MT-2000 features free-standing columns that provide rock solid mounting for the tissue recording chamber and multiple micromanipulators. A two-axis rotary optical encoder (ROE) accepts user input to the motorized translator and can be placed in any convenient location in your setup.

The 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 computer interface.

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.
