ScannerMAX Saturn Galvanometer Optical Scanners are designed to achieve the highest peak and RMS scanning performance for biomedical, laser material processing, and laser imaging applications. Compared to conventional galvanometers, the Saturn series of galvanometers are manufactured with stronger, stiffer rotors to prevent cross-axis scanning (wobble) at high scan speeds and generate less heat due their low coil resistance, allowing for faster performance without overheating or rotor damage. These galvanometers are available as a single axis (1D galvo) configuration with a Y-Axis mount or as a dual axis (2D galvo) configuration with an X-Y Axis Mount. ScannerMAX Saturn Galvanometer Optical Scanners are ideal for demanding imaging and projection applications such as confocal microscopy, laser entertainment displays, optical coherence tomography (OCT), and raster imaging, as well as laser marking applications. Galvanometers with 3mm, 5mm, and 10mm mirror apertures are available with a protected silver coating, covering small to large beam applications in the visible or infrared; please contact us if your application requires a Saturn galvanometer scanner with a custom mirror aperture or coating.
ScannerMAX Saturn Galvanometer Optical Scanners are driven by the Mach-DSP Servo Driver. This digital servo driver features a compact package size and simultaneously controls both X-Axis and Y-Axis scanners. The Mach-DSP can be controlled by both analog and digital signals, and it can be accessed and adjusted using a free GUI software package, which includes a built-in test pattern generator, oscilloscope, and dynamic signal analyzer. The Mach-DSP Servo Driver requires ±24 VDC of power.
