Description

Engineered by our ARGES brand, the Squirrel 2-axis scan head is a compact and versatile solution designed for fast performance. Built in a compact housing design, our 2-axis scan head is our smallest and fastest scan head designed for small footprint environments. The electronic design in state-of-the-art surface mount technology maximizes thermal stability, static and dynamic optical performance in robust housings.

The Squirrel can be purchased with various interfaces: standard analog inputs, standard XY2-100 protocol or our proprietary interface implementing new features and Plug & Play operation.

All ARGES scan heads are compatible with ARGES ASC controllers and InScript® software.
