Lens Positioners, High Precision
0.5-inch - 0.8-inch Optics
The new OTX.5 series optical translators
are an OEM version of our popular OT.5 series. These compact optical
translators incorporate crossed roller bearings for zero crosstalk
between X & Y axis adjustments. Precision rolled 100TPI adjustment
screws enable submicron adjustment across the full travel of the X & Y
axes, with smooth feel to the adjustment. Foil locks on all axes
have been tested to 4g's to maintain adjustment in challenging
environments. The Z-axis on the OTX.5-3
and OTX.5-5 uses a internal 80 pitch thread. The drive knob for the
Z-axis has 6 locking screws and 6 capstan drive holes that maximize
accessibility in any orientation.
The OTX.5-5 uses our patented spring-loaded
(pat. # 6590723) pivot for the tip/tilt of the XYZ stage. Though the
motion is not true gimbal, it does rotate about the optical center.
One clear benefit of this design is the location of the adjustment screws
above the beam path. Like many of our mirror mounts, the OTX.5 series uses our
one wrench design, which allows the user to adjust the optic position and lock
all adjustment axes with one wrench.
OTX.5 optical translators are compatible
with our OH.5 series of optics holders for microscope objectives,
0.25-inch optics, 0.5-inch optics, 0.8-inch optics, and custom optic mounting.
