IRVINE, Calif., March 10, 2010 – Newport Corp. has announced the latest offering in its SmartTable OTS optical table system family, the OTS-LSC integrated laser safety curtain that connects directly to the SmartTable-OTS overhead shelf, making it a quick and economical way to achieve laser safety compliance. It conforms to ANSI standards and can withstand exposure levels up to 200 W/cm2 for 100 s, based upon a 5-mm beam diameter. It can be easily relocated or repositioned within the laboratory. Being integrated into the support structure of an optical table reduces acquisition costs and installation time, and allows for easy mobility of even the most complex experiments. The 4-ft-tall curtain is designed to provide a 12-in. gap around the perimeter of the table. When installed at its maximum height of 78.5 in., it drapes below the table surface by 8 in. It is offered in several standard sizes to fit the most popular optical table sizes. If a wider working perimeter is needed, customers can simply purchase a larger curtain. Customized curtain sizes and special materials are available upon request.
