Lens Positioners, High Precision
1.0-inch - 1.375-inch Optics
The new OTX1.0 series optical translators
are an OEM version of our popular OT1.0 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 OTX1.0-3
and OTX1.0-5 uses a internal 80 pitch tread. The drive knob for the
Z-axis has 6 locking screws and 6 capstan drive holes that maximize
accessibility in any orientation.
The OTX1.0-5 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 OTX1.0 series uses our
one wrench design, which allows the user to adjust the optic position and lock
all adjustment axes with one wrench.
OTX1.0 optical translators are compatible
with our OH1.0 series of optics holders for microscope objectives,
0.25-inch optics, 1.0-inch optics, 1.375-inch optics, and custom optic
