Single coordinate linear scanner

Linear mirror scanner for phase light modulation. 


Possible applications



Powered with standard sine wave generator with tunable parameters. Regulated current up to 80 mA and resonant frequency range 280 – 350 Hz.


Single and Dual Axis Scanners Overview

A client asked OFH to develop a low cost, moving coil design with LED/quad sensor position sensor, closed-loop servo feedback with electronic dampening. This product is not available as an off the shelf system but serves as an example related to past work.
