http://www.ScannerMAX.com - A brief overview of the ScannerMAX Advantage, presented at the 2013 Photonics West Show in San Francisco. The all new Saturn 5 is the first optical scanner we have released in the Saturn series, and is intended for 3mm - 8mm apertures. The Saturn 5 is completely unique and unlike any conventional galvanometer on the market today. The way we form our magnetic circuit results in a magnetic field strength that is significantly stronger than all others. The way we form a rotor and attach the mirror is also stronger. The position sensor offers a stronger signal-to-noise ratio and lower capacitance, and the bearings are made with the strongest nitrogen alloy steel available. Due to the way in which the coils are formed and then placed into the magnetic circuit, the motor runs cooler. Putting all of this together results in a simple formula: Stronger + Cooler = Faster !
