Oil Hydraulic-Motorized Hybrid drive offers precise control.

MDO-974 is the motor-driven oil-hydraulic micromanipulator suitable for in-vivo experiments on middle-sized animals, mainly NHP primates. Based on the manual oil-hydraulic mechanism of MO-97, the hybrid model installed with stepping motor enables speed control as well as greater driving precision, which are impossible to be performed by manual model. As a merit of the hydraulic part that requires no electricity, the hydraulic-tubing line keeps some distance from the motor to the animal's head, so that the sound or noise from the motor is suppressed during the experiment. Operational setting for drive is easy to do, which is completed by entering speed directly, or entering distance and time. The range of drive speed is set as 0.1um/s to 500um/s. The speed can be changed on the way to the target, so you can make the electrode closer to the target with a faster speed, and then change it to slower speed as final small-step approach. The closed chamber is equipped with acrylic XY stage which control knobs drive 18mm on each axis.

* Distance between the control unit and motor unit can be extended from original 2.9m(9.5ft) in total to 7m(28.2ft) by MD-DCE-7 (sold separately).
* Palm-sized compact controller MD-OH-1 (sold separately) is also available.
