    The New Scale Technologies  M3-L Micro Linear Actuator is a miniature high-resolution positioning system. It is a “smart” actuator with integrated driver and closed-loop controller inside the actuator.

    This compact, powerful motion system helps OEM designers improve performance and reduce the size of instruments in a wide range of applications.

    M3-L micro linear actuators add high-resolution positioning to portable and hand-held devices. They accept a 3.3 V supply and high-level input via standard serial interface.

    We offer production-ready standard modules, as well as customized modules to fit your OEM application.

  • New Scale Technologies: M3-FS and M3-F Focus Modules

    M3-FS and M3-F Focus Modules enable smaller instruments

    New Scale Technologies M3-FS focus modules add high-resolution lens motion, with excellent dynamic stability, to the smallest embedded optical systems in handheld and portable instruments.

    Each module is a complete closed-loop motion solution – including embedded controller – and requires no more space than a typical fixed lens mount. Very low power is needed to move the lens and zero power is needed to hold the lens in any position, making the M3-FS ideal for battery-powered devices.
