VIBRATION ISOLATION MODULE
May 2002TMCRequest Info
Designed for Gimbal Piston air vibration isolation tables, the Q-Damp module from Technical Manufacturing Corp. is suitable for use in electrophysiology research, metrology devices, atomic force microscopes and optical microscope-based tools. The module suppresses resonance and provides vibration isolation in the frequency range from 1 to 2 Hz. Q-Damp senses residual vibration in the isolated vertical surface and drives the compact electromagnets mounted under the tabletop. The restoring force provides vibration cancellation with three degrees of freedom and isolation of up to 12 dB at 2 Hz. This self-contained part can be used with a new system or retrofitted to an installed table.
