HALscan 10X20 - XY3-100 Scanhead


Please note: Our annual vacation close-down takes place from 17.08.2020 until 04.09.2020.
So there will be no support and no shipping during this time.

The HALscan is a low-cost but high-accuracy scanhead which supports the new, open and future-proof XY3-100 digital scanner interface. It is fully adjusted, ready to use and only needs to be electrically connected for operation. It provides the following features:

  • 10 mm aperture
  • XY3-100 input signal
  • close to linear behaviour, as nearly no pillow distortion exists, for most applications no correction table is necessary
  • high 20 bit output resolution
  • position extrapolation in case of data transmission errors to avoid random burn-in points
  • +-15 V power supply
  • simple 1:1 connection with E1803D contoller card possible via standard D-SUB25 cable
  • full operation with any other XY3-100 scanner controller
  • low idle power consumption
  • available for all relevant laser types/wave lengths
  • industry-standard mounting interface

The XY3-100 protocol itself is a new, open, future-proof and non-proprietary standard for communication between scanner controller card and scanhead. It provides variable position resolutions in range 16..26 bit and an extended backchannel. It is hardware-compatible to its predecessor XY2-100 and therefore can be implemented in existing hardware simply via a firmware upgrade.
