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 typically created by the bird’s nest of cables around a setup. Opting for the wireless solution also solves the problem of cables exerting a pulling force on the manipulator, assuring that the CleverArm micromanipulator causes no 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.
