eTrack Low Cost Linear Stage





Product Videos

The low-cost eTrack linear stages are designed for a variety of applications in research & development, automation, and other industrial areas requiring quick positioning of light payloads.

The eTrack offers travel lengths from 50mm to 300mm and two leadscrew pitches: 2mm & 12mm. The eTrack comes standard with a high torque size 17 stepper motor end of travel limit switches. The limit switch and motor cables are terminated by a 9 pin connector near the rear of the stage next to the motor.

The drive system utilizes a stainless steel ACME leadscrew with internally lubricated plastic drive nut. The drive nut offers zero backlash operation that automatically adjusts for wear to insure zero backlash for the life of the stage.

The eTrack is available as an XY linear stage.

Please note: The eTrack is not available in travel lengths greater than 150mm for XY and XYZ configuration.

All eTrack linear stages are machined from 6061 aluminum alloy and black anodized.
