Company Profile How Zaber Got Its Start Zaber Technologies was founded in 1997 by a group of friends with diverse interests in electro-mechanical systems, programming, and physics. Back then, precision linear actuators all used DC motors with gearboxes and encoders, and they required complicated motion control cards, bulky controllers, separate driver amplifiers, and special power supplies. Precision motion control was expensive, difficult to set up, and cumbersome to use. Zaber’s founders recognized the need for an inexpensive, integrated solution for motion control. They wanted to make motion...

Design Spotlight: Prototyping Prototyping and Testing As we get started designing a new product, one of our first steps is to build rough prototypes of the product or different sections of the product. We’ll whip up some parts in the machine shop and build things like drive assemblies so we can have something in our hands as fast as possible. These concept prototypes are not usually pretty, but we always learn a lot that we couldn’t tell from a computer model or from calculations. Just by holding it in your hands, you learn a lot from how it feels and moves. It’s common to find some detail that...

When you talk, we listen; we continually expand and improve our product line based on your feedback. Expandable Design Easy Installation Automating more than one axis? You can daisy-chain up to 254 Zaber devices to a single RS232 or USB port. Power can be transmitted through the data cables of T-Series and X-Series devices, allowing multiple units of the same series to be powered from a single power supply. Minimal hardware and cabling make Zaber products easy to set up and help reduce clutter on the workbench. Connect the Zaber controller (built into the device or stand-alone) to...

About Our Products Built-in controllers simplify your set-up Many of our devices are designed with built-in controllers and drivers (and some with encoders), which reduces your cost, overall device footprint, and cable clutter. Don’t want the integrated controllers? We have versions compatible with our external controllers too. The choice is yours: enjoy complete automation through computer control, or use manual control Zaber devices are perfect for automating your positioning needs. Our free software allows you to send single commands or complex sequences. Most models offer a manual control...
