Attocube introduces FPS3010 ultra-high sensitivity displacement sensor with new sensor heads

attocube’s award winning FPS3010 - the ultra-high sensitivity, high bandwidth interferometric displacement sensor – is now available with new sensor heads. These were specifically designed for the use in extremely confined spaces: With a diameter of only 1.2 millimeters the ultra-compact ‘xxs’ heads can now even perform measurements in applications, which simply had not been accessible for metrological instruments before.

The currently worldwide smallest sensor heads revolutionize existing measurement technology and open up completely new applications in various fields. Due to their miniature dimensions, several sensor heads can easily be integrated even in the tiniest areas. The fiber-based design allows for flexible alignment, thus making multi-axis measurements an easy task.

The new xxs sensor heads are the perfect solution for nano-precise, contactless measurements in extremely limited space conditions. Despite their small size, they deliver dynamic working ranges of up to 8 cm. For larger distances up to 3 meters, attocube offers the option of additional various head sizes (Ø 4 mm, 14 mm & 22 mm).

about attocube systems AG:
attocube was founded in 2001 and develops, produces and distributes a broad portfolio of ultra precise drive technology and measurement instrumentation for most challenging nanotechnology applications. Ground-breaking innovation of the Munich-based company was the development of highly compact nano positioning devices, which were - for the first time ever - adaptable for extreme conditions. In addition, attocube develops scanning probe microscopes used in fundamental research and materials science. Another significant segment of the portfolio is attocube’s optical interferometry solutions offering picometer accuracy for various metrology applications.

attocube has already won prestigious prizes and awards, the most important ones being the Bavarian Innovation Award (2006), the German Award for Outstanding Entrepreneurs (2008), and the TOP100 Innovation Award (2013).
