The Cryo Positioning Systems Controller is a modular controller system for all JPE Cryo Actuator products. This controller consist of a 19” desktop Base Cabinet (CAB) and can fit up to 6 function specific modules (brochures for each available module can be found below). The CAB includes a Power Supply Unit as well as a USB HID and Ethernet LAN connection for communication with a desktop computer or laptop (Basedrive or Servodrive). Control software for PC (Windows OS) can be downloaded for free on this page (see section above).
