Manual, Ball Bearing, 1.0-inch & 2.0-inch
rotation stages provide smooth, continuous angular positioning for a
variety of components. Both sizes of RS series rotation stages use
our unique integrated bearing design. This ball bearing design is a
robust but cost effective alternative to more expensive bearing packages.
Our knurled drive system coupled with the bearing system ensures smooth
positioning throughout the full 360° of continuous rotation.
The knurled edge of the
rotating platform gives convenient coarse positioning control. A
fine adjustment knob controls angular positioning through a 360° scale
graduated in 2° increments. The rotating platform can be securely
locked in position by a non-influencing lock that is integrated into the
fine adjustment knob.
RS series rotation
stages are available in two styles: aperture (RSA-1.0 and RSA-2.0)
for polarization applications and solid platform (RSX-1.0 and RSX-2.0) for
mounting prisms, mirrors, and stages. Aperture versions come with
two Delrin ® retaining rings to securely hold optics without damage.
The solid platform versions have a 1⁄4-20 tapped hole at the center of
rotation and all models have six 8-32 tapped holes for added mounting
flexibility. For vertical mounting there are 8-32 (RSA-1.0 and
RSX-1.0) and 1⁄4-20 (RSA-2.0 and RSX-2.0) tapped holes on the edge of the
stage. Horizontal or table top mounting is accomplished through two
1⁄4-20 clearance holes at opposite corners of both sizes.
Adapter for RSA-1.0
The RS-1.0i threaded
adapter provides a change from a 11⁄16-20 internal thread to a 1⁄4-20
Also used on Model OG-1.0P series,
polarizing gimbal mount.
