GRANTS PASS, Ore., June 20, 2016 — Siskiyou Corp. has announced the OGX series of optical mounts, simplifying optical systems alignments.
The mounts feature top adjustment, allowing them to be set without reaching into the beam path. It also features a locking mechanism that limits draft to <5 μm, even when exposed to mechanical shocks of up to 4 G. Additionally, OGX mounts are true gimbals, meaning that angular adjustments to an incident beam don’t also result in later translation of the light path.
OGX mounts are available for both 1- and 2-in.-diameter optics such as mirrors, beamsplitters, filters and lenses. The use of fine pitch adjusters provides adjustment resolution as fine as 5.3 arc seconds over a total motion range of 7°.
The OGX mounts are primarily intended for space-constrained applications in high-performance optical systems that require extremely precise adjustment and exceptional long-term stability. Applications include airborne and spaceborne laser systems, laboratory use, astronomy instrumentation, and miniaturized life science instruments and tools.
