· Super Stable
· Low/No Electrical Noise
· Great Value
The reliable stepper motors are driven by electronics mounted on the manipulator body, with a single power cable powering the card. The drive card receives commands from the CleverControl cuboid and the PC software via Wi-Fi signal.
Different frequency settings can be selected to coordinate different MCI devices in the lab. Cables are therefore kept to a minimum, which reduces the chances of electrical noise being picked by the typical bird’s nest of cables around the setup. Opting for the wireless solution also solves the problem of cables exerting a pulling force on the manipulator, often a cause of electrode drift.
Stability – less than 1 um drift per hour. Each individual manipulator is tested in our laboratory and won’t be shipped before meeting this criterium.
Electrical Noise – The Wi-Fi signal emits a frequency outside the range of interest to the neuroscientist.
Reliable Stepper Motor Technology – Our stepper motors offer smooth movement (smoothness of 20nm – minimum step size of 100nm) and reliability that allows us to confidently offer our excellent 3-year warranty.
Modular – The modularity of the system allows for flexible positioning of the manipulator next to your rig.
Virtual Diagonal Axis – An angular detector senses the angle of the electrode-mounting plate. The electrode can be moved at this angle when the Diagonal Axis function is activated.
Warranty – For your peace of mind, the CleverArm manipulator comes with a 3-year warranty, showing our confidence in this technology.
