XUMU Ultrasonic Motion Unit
Meet the XUMU-series, the world’s fastest ultrasonic motor (with integrated controller!).
The XUMU is an ultrasonic piezo motor, with integrated controller, allowing for an extremely compact design and easy integration. The included ceramic strip is attached to the movable object, providing easy and flexible integration in various kinds of applications. Perfect for micro-automation, sample positioning and OEM motion projects.
How does it work? The XUMU motor has an integrated suspension and can be mounted with two screws in slide slots. Mount the adhesive ceramic strip onto the sliding object and place the XUMU motor against the ceramic strip. Positioning the motor is as easy as it gets: put two screws in the slide slots and move the motor into position using the spacer shim. The motor can then be controlled by analog control or by PWM.
- Variable speeds up to 1000 mm/s
- Easy integration thanks to compact design
- Analog control

Fast, precise and long-lasting ultrasonic motor
The XUMU motor is driven by the Crossfixx™️ ultrasonic piezo technology, allowing for a silent and fast positioning of any object. With a driving force of 3N this is the world’s leading piezo motor in terms of force, speed and integrability. The lifetime of over 500km (or 25 million cycles) puts the XUMU at the top, supporting a wide range of applications. The XUMU motor is a real OEM product but a break-out board is available for test setups.
Break-out board for testing the XUMU motor with analog signals or a USB connection to a PC.

You can control the speed with an analog signal on the “SPD” pin. The analog input voltage can range from 0V to 3.3V which corresponds to lowest speed (standstill) to full speed.
You can control the speed with a PWM signal on the “SPD” pin. This signal should not exceed 3.3V and the frequency has to stay between 200 Hz and 200 kHz. By varying the duty cycle of the PWM signal you can control the speed from the lowest speed (standstill) to full speed.
