Internal-Pendulum Leg Stands

BOSTON, July 2, 2010 — Two new vibration-isolating leg stands have been introduced by Kinetic Systems Inc. Designated the 500AP Series and designed to support the company’s breadboards and optical tables, they are available individually as modular mounts, or as leg stands with braces and casters for optical tables. Their proprietary internal trifilar and quadfilar pendulum systems provide good horizontal vibration isolation. This, combined with active-air suspension, gives users protection against horizontal and vertical vibrations.

The leg stands can be configured to incorporate automatic leveling. They offer low natural frequencies of 1.25 Hz along the horizontal axis and 1.50 Hz along the vertical axis. They can achieve isolation efficiencies of 98% horizontal and 95% vertical at 10 Hz and above.

The trifilar leg stands are designed for heavier loads than previous models were. They can support equipment weighing from 500 to 2000 lbs, isolating it from the ambient building vibrations caused by machinery, heating and ventilation systems, local truck or rail traffic, and other sources.

Quadfilar mounts have a load capacity of 250 to 1000 lbs and provide best-in-class horizontal vibration isolation.

Both types are also Class 100 cleanroom-compatible. Braces and casters are available for leg stands from 355.6 through 812.8 mm high.
