The QUAD® motorized micromanipulator is easy to use and features four independent axes. Each axis has a 25 mm range of motion, a digital display of position and a control box. The compact, intuitive controller takes up minimal bench space, is fan free and is easy to use. Three axes provide the X, Y, Z-orthogonal motion typical of most motorized micromanipulators. The QUAD features a true fourth axis to move the electrode coaxially at exactly the desired angle of approach. The fourth axis has 30 mm of travel that significantly extends the range of travel for the system.

The QUAD® is very easy to operate. The compact design takes up minimal bench space, has a control box, a digital display of position, is fan free and intuitive to use. The control box inputs for each axis allow facile manual control of electrode position. Five conveniently located buttons control all of the basic functions that you will need in normal operation. Press and hold the [WORK] button to quickly store a work position; press [WORK] again and the manipulator will return to the same location. [HOME] sends the manipulator to an initial location or any user defined position, which is useful for changing electrodes rapidly. When you are ready to begin collecting data the motor drive electronics can be suppressed by pressing [LOCK]. Display coordinates can be zeroed at any location by pressing [RELATIVE]; go back to absolute coordinates by pressing [RELATIVE] again. Finally, [PULSE] activates a pulse movement mode that produces small, rapid bursts of motion that can be advantageous for sharp electrode cell penetration.
