A portable benchtop vibration isolation system introduced by Kinetic Systems Inc. has a self-contained design that allows it to be repositioned on the benchtop, even with a load and in float. The ELpF (ergonomic low-profile format) platform features a load capacity of 100 or 300 lb, stands 3 in. tall, uses a 0.41 × 0.48-m tabletop and weighs 40 lb. Ergonomic features include gauges tilted upward for easier viewing and recessed handles for carrying. Designed for use in laboratories and Class 100 cleanrooms, it supports atomic force microscopes, microhardness testers, analytical balances, profilometers and audio equipment. Self-leveling and active-air isolation provide 1.75-Hz vertical and 2.0-Hz horizontal natural frequencies, and typical isolation efficiencies of 95% vertical and 92% horizontal at 10 Hz.
