Precision stages for land surveying

Low energy use

Land surveying equipment needs to work for as long as your customers do. That’s where Xeryon positioning stages come in, with components that are extremely energy-efficient: zero energy consumption during position holding and minimal power use during movement. Our precision stages and shutters use only a couple of watts to reposition, allowing you to design surveying equipment that will go on, and on, and on …

Fast

Your customers want to move quickly. Scanning the environment from different positions takes a lot of time, so fast positioning of optical equipment within the surveying device and high-speed scanning are essential. The patented Xeryon Crossfixx™ technology allows positioning velocities up to 200mm/s for our linear stages and 2 rotations per second for the rotary stages – but always with the precision you expect from Xeryon equipment: less than 100nm!

Compact and light

The precision stages in our standard range are the size of a box of matches and weigh less than 100g, allowing you to design highly portable, energy-efficient surveying systems.

The Xeryon engineering team creates customised solutions for your specific needs, that can reduce the weight even further to a few grams – and the volume to the size of a fingertip! Visit our custom section for more information.

Vibration proof

Xeryon ultrasonic piezo stages and shutters contain no moving parts, except for the vibrating piezo element and the moving functional component. So you can forget about fragile transmission or reduction components like gears and wormwheels that are sensitive to vibrations and shocks. The piezo motor blocks the slide in place, thanks to the mechanical tension between the components, and thus protects it against free sliding. If a forced movement takes place, this does not damage the piezo stage, as there is no effect of inverse transmission or reduction which would cause high forces on the components.

Applications

Xeryon piezo stages are perfect for:

  • Total stations
  • Landscape scanning
  • Distance measuring equipment
  • 3D scanning
  • Surveying beam control
