The HDR50(/M) Heavy-Duty Rotation Stage provides motorized, continuous rotation and can support loads up to 50 kg (110 lbs). It incorporates a micro-stepping motor, worm gear assembly, precision bearings, and a low-profile design with a height of 44.0 mm. The central aperture features an SM2 thread on the rotating and the non-rotating parts, making the stage compatible with our SM2 lens tubes. The stage has four 1/4" (M6) countersunk holes that allow it to be secured directly to a breadboard. The holes are spaced apart such that an imperial stage may also be mounted to a metric breadboard and vice versa. The stage can also be post mounted using the six 1/4"-20 (M6) side-located mounting holes.

Accessories
We offer several types of top plate adapters which mount to the rotating world of the HDR50(/M) stage using 8-32 (M4) screws. We also offer two mounting adapters: the NR360SP2 bracket is designed for secure vertical mounting of the stage and the NR360SP5 adapter enables the HDR50 rotation stage to be mounted to select translation stages.

Software
This stage can be operated with the user friendly Kinesis software package, which allows the user to quickly set up complex move sequences. It also features .NET controls which can be used by 3rd party developers working in the latest C#, Visual Basic, LabVIEW™ or any .NET compatible languages to create custom applications. All relevant operating parameters are set automatically by the software for Thorlabs stage and actuator products. For more details, please see the Kinesis Software and Kinesis Tutorials tabs.

Thorlabs' Kinesis® software can be used to control devices in the Kinesis or APT™ family, which covers a wide range of motion controllers ranging from small, low-powered, single-channel drivers (such as the K-Cubes and T-Cubes) to high-power, multi-channel, modular 19" rack nanopositioning systems (the APT Rack System).

The Kinesis Software features new .NET controls which can be used by 3rd party developers working in the latest C#, Visual Basic, LabVIEW™ or any .NET compatible languages to create custom applications. Low level DLL libraries are included for applications not expected to use the .NET framework. A Central Sequence Manager supports integration and synchronization of all Thorlabs motion control hardware.

By providing these common software platforms, Thorlabs has ensured that users can easily mix and match any of the APT and Kinesis controllers in a single application, while only having to learn a single set of software tools. In this way, it is perfectly feasible to combine any of the controllers from the low-powered, single-axis to the high-powered, multi-axis systems and control all from a single, PC-based unified software interface.

The software packages allow two methods of usage: graphical user interface (GUI) utilities for direct interaction with and control of the controllers 'out of the box', and a set of programming interfaces that allow custom-integrated positioning and alignment solutions to be easily programmed in the development language of choice.

Thorlabs' Kinesis® software features new .NET controls which can be used by third-party developers working in the latest C#, Visual Basic, LabVIEW™, or any .NET compatible languages to create custom applications.

C#
This programming language is designed to allow multiple programming paradigms, or languages, to be used, thus allowing for complex problems to be solved in an easy or efficient manner. It encompasses typing, imperative, declarative, functional, generic, object-oriented, and component-oriented programming. By providing functionality with this common software platform, Thorlabs has ensured that users can easily mix and match any of the Kinesis controllers in a single application, while only having to learn a single set of software tools. In this way, it is perfectly feasible to combine any of the controllers from the low-powered, single-axis to the high-powered, multi-axis systems and control all from a single, PC-based unified software interface.

LabVIEW
LabVIEW can be used to communicate with any Kinesis- or APT-based controller via .NET controls. In LabVIEW, you build a user interface, known as a front panel, with a set of tools and objects and then add code using graphical representations of functions to control the front panel objects. The LabVIEW tutorial, provided below, provides some information on using the .NET controls to create control GUIs for Kinesis- and APT-driven devices within LabVIEW. It includes an overview with basic information about using controllers in LabVIEW and explains the setup procedure that needs to be completed before using a LabVIEW GUI to operate a device.

Hi, Is it possible to control the NR360S stepper motor with a brushed Motor Controller? I am unable to control the motor with the kinesis software. Thanks, Charles
AManickavasagam  (posted 2019-07-25 04:59:03.0)
Response from Arunthathi at Thorlabs: Thanks for your query. Since the NR360S is a stepper motor it would not work with a brushed motor controller. You would need to use a stepper motor controller such as the BSC201 (https://www.thorlabs.com/newgrouppage9.cfm?objectgroup_id=1704&pn=BSC201). We will contact you directly to troubleshoot the issue you have with Kinesis.
Wenzel Jakob  (posted 2019-06-09 10:13:12.337)
Could you clarify the differences of HDR50 compared to the previous NR360S stage? I'm wondering why a different product was introduced (the specs look very similar to me).
AManickavasagam  (posted 2019-06-10 06:16:53.0)
Response from Arunthathi at Thorlabs: Thanks for your query. The NR360 is redesigned as HDR50 having performance specs with higher certainty level and for repeatable production process.
user  (posted 2019-05-09 16:17:04.293)
New products keep coming from Thorlabs, yet they cannot be used in environments where DUT requires a specific OS. Since DUT and equipment must share the same computer for automation, if equipment presents a limitation such as being locked to a specific OS, then DUT that requires a different OS cannot be tested on such station. Thorlabs fails to provide a simple OS agnostic API. Thorlabs equipment cannot be used on macOS, thus cannot be incorporated into large testing stations. Thorlabs claims that they do provide API for their controllers, but it's like a 400+ page technical document encompassing low level serial interface commands, rather than a high level simple API. Good luck understanding how to program using this low level API, I'd bet you'll spends months perfecting it.
bhallewell  (posted 2019-05-10 12:09:00.0)
Response from Ben at Thorlabs: Thank you for your feedback. We value your thoughts, which I’ve referred onto my colleagues at our Motion Control Engineering site. We are actively improving our Kinesis Motion Control software platform with regular updated releases. As you’ve identified, currently our high level Kinesis .NET and C APIs are targeted for use with modern Windows Operating Systems. For users wanting to connect with devices on non-Windows operating systems, we offer access through a low level communications protocol detailed in a comprehensive .pdf document found on our website. This is targeted at experienced developers and lists all available methods documented with code examples as well as details of device enumeration and device unit conversion. Should you need any assistance with interpreting the document you are welcome to contact your local Technical Support office. We hope to provide API support at higher level entries across multiple operating systems in the future.

Hello, One of our production machines uses this motor and I need to have a second one as spare just in case it breaks. Where and how I could get a one of these? Do you have a replacement for this obsolete item? Thank you
user  (posted 2019-03-27 08:05:44.0)
Response from Arunthathi at Thorlabs: Thanks for your query. A replacement for the NR360(/M) motor-driven stage will be available for purchase in the coming weeks.

I heve to buy the nano rotator NR360S/M and i want know if it needs the controller BSC201 to works or i can only use a computer. Thank's.
bhallewell  (posted 2019-01-18 08:47:31.0)
Response from Ben at Thorlabs: You will require a BSC201 controller to drive the NR360S. This controller is a USB device which will connect with your computer through our Kinesis software which can be downloaded from the 'Software' section of our website.

I have troubles to "home" this stage with the APT user interface. I tried the home function provided but it does not work with my configuration (BSC202 and two nanor rotators). Is there an internal home defined inside each of my NR360S/M? Please help.
bhallewell  (posted 2017-11-07 08:08:24.0)
Response from Ben at Thorlabs: Thank you for contacting us regarding this issue. Each NR360S/M stage is fitted with a home limit switch which will provide a reference to the device Home Position when contacted. I will email you to troubleshoot the problem.
kmcpeak  (posted 2017-09-06 18:31:23.413)
Dear Sir or Ma'am, Similar to a previous post, can you provide me some insight on how to accurately set the position of the NR360S (since it doesn't have an encoder)? I am not using the apt controller but rather a third party driver being controlled via labview. Thank you. Regards, Kevin
AManickavasagam  (posted 2017-09-13 08:38:54.0)
Response from Arunthathi: Thank you for your question. In the NR360S with the stepper motor actuator, the position is determined by the number of steps taken by the stepper motor, which would be indicated by the controller. You can then calculate the degrees the platform has moved as each microstep equates to a movement of 13.3 x 10-6 micro-degrees. We strongly recommend to use our BSC stepper motor controllers to attain reliable accurate set positions.

Is there a calib.dat file (for use with the APT.Config application) available for NR360S/M on a BSC102 controller? If so, does it need to e downloaded or should it have been installed with APT software? Thanks.
rcapehorn  (posted 2015-02-04 08:34:34.0)
Response from Rob at Thorlabs: Thank you for your interest in our NR360S, rotation stage. The NR360S does not require a calibration file to operate within its specified range. Therefore at this moment in time we do not currently offer a calibration file for this product.
johndavidglover  (posted 2015-01-14 16:16:30.52)
We would like to use an NR360S/M in a remote positioning application, but it is critical that the required final position is reached (to avoid collisions with other moving parts). As there is no built - in position encoder, can you supply (or suggest) any other suitable method? e.g. a stepper motor with encoder, or an external encoder which could be fitted? Thanks in anticipation. John.
rcapehorn  (posted 2015-01-16 09:14:07.0)
Response from Rob at Thorlabs: Thank you for your question. We have multiple options for accurately setting a position with our NR360S, including our APT software and further integration with third party software suits such as LabView.I have emailed you directly to further discuss your application.

I am trying to find a way to mount 2 rotation stages on top of each other in a concentric way. Will this stage function to the specs if it is mounted upside down? BirX
msoulby  (posted 2014-07-02 09:47:55.0)
Response from Mike at Thorlabs: There is no direct way to attach two NR360S rotation stages concentrically, however without knowing more about your application I am not certain what benefit there would be by mounting two rotation stages on top of each other, if you can provide us with an email address or contact details we would be happy to discuss your application in more detail with you. Also the stage can operate mounted on its side or upside down, however we would advise caution to avoid overloading the stage. All of our specs are for horizontal, on axis, loads and can take up to 50kg in this configuration however we do not currently have any data for the load capacity for using the stage upside down.
wise.adam.jay  (posted 2014-03-23 21:01:05.353)
Can you tell me what sort of inertial load this stage can handle without skipping steps? Is it possible to calculate this from the rotor inertia / torque? Thanks!
msoulby  (posted 2014-03-24 09:50:20.0)
Response from Mike at Thorlabs: The NR360S can handle an on axis load of up to 50kg when mounted horizontally. We do not specify for using off axis loads or torques but the stage can certainly handle 3-4 kg on a lever arm of about 25m lon.
Paul.taylor  (posted 2013-10-24 09:49:28.047)
Hi. I am interested in using a nr360s to complete repeatable 180 degree moves. Is there a way to do this with the controller without permanent pc connection to the controller? Eg via a digital input or rs232 comma from a touchscreen ?
msoulby  (posted 2013-10-28 07:48:00.0)
Response from Mike at Thorlabs: It is possible to use the trigger pins on the control I/O connector on the rear panel of the stepper controller to make the stage respond to an external trigger. The stage can be set to make an absolute or relative move in response to the input trigger. The trigger settings can be accessed from the APT user settings or by using the ActiveX method SetTriggerParams.
jlow  (posted 2012-09-05 10:11:00.0)
Response from Jeremy at Thorlabs: The holding torque is the torque keeping the motor static. Please note that the 23.1N-cm spec is the holding torque spec for the motor only. The load capacity when the NR360S is mounted vertically is around 10kg. 90Ncm would be around the maximum that you should put on the stage.
czl0579  (posted 2012-09-02 17:14:48.0)
How do you define the holding torque of the stage? We vertically mounted the stage and applyed 90Ncm torque onto it. The stage seems can still handle it. What is the load capacity perpendicular to rotation axis?
tcohen  (posted 2012-03-29 12:38:00.0)
Response from Tim at Thorlabs to quyngoc89: Accuracy is a measure of how well the stage will move to the intended position. Resolution is a measurement of the smallest amount the stage can be moved.
quyngoc89  (posted 2012-03-29 12:10:35.0)
I looked at the specs sheet but I don't understand the different between the accuracy (5 arcmin) and the resolution (1 arcsec). Could you please explain it? Thank you.
Frank.Warner  (posted 2011-08-18 08:10:41.0)
What bending moment can the rotator manage? The application requires one rotator mounted horizontally, with a second rotator mounted vertically and offset from the first by say 0.5 meters horizontally and connected to the first rotator. The bending moment may reach 3 kg-m.
jjurado  (posted 2011-08-09 16:36:00.0)
Response from Javier at Thorlabs to tlorentz: The NR360S is not designed for vacuum compatibility. The grease used in the stage is vacuum compatible, but the plastic and rubber components, and the anodizing, will in all likelihood outgass in vacuum levels higher than 10^-3 Torr.
tlorentz  (posted 2011-08-08 17:32:07.0)
How serious of a concern is outgassing with this product -- is it compatible with vacuum environments? e.g., up to 10^-3 torr, up to 10^-6 torr
gdavis  (posted 2011-04-11 10:39:00.0)
A response from Greg at Thorlabs to cwliang: The resolution of the NR360S is derived from the micro step count of the motor itself as there is no rotary encoder incorporated within this rotation stage.
cwliang  (posted 2011-04-09 09:48:54.0)
Hi there, The stage has a 1-arcsec resolution. Does this resolution came from the circular encoder readout or the step motor micro-steps counting?
tor  (posted 2011-01-05 18:27:23.0)

Tyler  (posted 2008-06-13 08:43:14.0)
A response from Tyler at Thorlabs to Ian: The hole spacing is not symmetrical about the 50 mm center hole on the NR360S because the space occupied by the internal mechanisms prevented the symmetric placement of the mounting holes. The distance between the mounting holes of 101 and 51 allow the stage to be mounted on a metric or imperial optical breadboard with the use of an NR360SP1 spacer plate. In an effort to keep our drawings uncluttered enough to be readable we only display a limited number of dimensions. If the dimension you are looking for is not displayed you can contact an applications engineer at Thorlabs or load the ParaSolid, eDrawing, or Step file and measure the dimension using the softwares measurement tool. eDrawings is a free web browser download that can be used to view the ParaSolid and eDrawing files. I will have an applications engineer contact you to avoid confusion and make sure that you are getting the dimension that you have requested. Thank you for your interest in our rotation stage.
ian.mills2  (posted 2008-06-11 10:26:03.0)
Please explain the rationale behind the hole centre spacing of 101mm and 51mm. Also, please confirm whether the 101mm spacing is symmetrical about the 50mm centre hole, and if not symmetrical, please advise what the offset is.

Table Mounting Plate for the Retired NR360S(/M) Stage

NR360S Stage with NR360SP1 Plate
NR360SP1 Application Details
Click to Enlarge

The NR360SP1 plate provides clearance between the NR360S stage and the mounting surface.
  • Enables Our Retired NR360S(/M) Stage to be Mounted on a Breadboard
  • Not Required for Mounting HDR50(/M) Stage

The NR360SP1(/M) adapter plate is necessary for the retired NR360S(/M) to be mounted horizontally on a large, flat surface, such as an optical table, because the stepper motor extends below the bottom surface of the rotation stage frame (see image to the right). The 10 mm thick adapter plate provides 2 mm clearance between the stepper motor and the mounting surface.

This mounting plate may be used with the HDR50(/M) stage as a 10 mm riser plate. However, it is not required for mounting the stage directly to a breadboard due to the design of the HDR50, which has integrated feet.
