Elevating PowerProbe (EPP Series)
Complete sampling-handling system providing linear motion and up to 50mm of lift in the Y-axis for sample hand-off. Stroke lengths from 304mm to 1219mm and motorisation options available.
Elevating PowerProbe Features
- Up to 50mm of lift in the Y-axis
- Unrivalled axial coupling strength
- 10x the thrust of conventional probes
- Exceptional axial stiffness
- Zero backlash under low load
- Bakeable to 250°C without removing any components
The Elevating PowerProbe transforms conventional approaches to sample transfer. In addition to its internally-guided linear motion, the probe has the ability to elevate its end-effector throughout its stroke, providing 12.7mm of lift as standard (with 25mm and 50mm options) in the Y axis for sample hand-off.
This PowerProbe variant greatly simplifies sample transfer techniques, providing a single device to provide both linear motion for sample introduction and the lift/lower motion to collect or hand-off the sample.
With a range of industry-standard effectors, the Elevating PowerProbe provides a complete sample-handling system in its own right removing the need for secondary motion tools. This reduces cost and simplifies the transfer process.
