Vibration Isolation Accessories
Air Tank Size 4 Liters
Two Voltage Options: 220 V @ 50 Hz or 115 V @ 60 Hz
Integral Pressure Regulator and Filter
Low Noise Operation: 40 dB at 1 m
The PTA512, PTA513, and PTA514 are high-performance air compressors designed for applications demanding the highest quality air supply. They are self contained, lightweight, and compact, with minimal vibrations due to the very low noise emitted (40 dB at 1 m) from the compressor. The oil-lubricated pump unit is fitted with piston rings, thereby eliminating oil carryover to the air supply. These compressors deliver 50% more air than other silent compressors.
They accept standard 6 mm outer diameter tubing, include an air regulator, filter, receiver tank with pressure gauge, safety valve, drain, and line pressure gauge. They are shipped with a power cord for the appropriate territory, together with a bottle of compressor oil (PTA1006).
Compatible with SuperDamp Active Isolators
Water and particles commonly found in compressed air can be damaging to a vibration isolation system. This compact filter/regulator is recommended for use with all Thorlabs SuperDamp isolators. It regulates the air pressure supplied to the isolators while removing moisture and particles down to 5µm. The fittings are compatible with the 6mm diameter plastic tubing supplied with the SuperDamp isolators. Each filter/regulator is shipped with a wall mounting bracket and two 1/4" to 6mm outer diameter tubing adapters.
Connects to a Standard Schrader Valve
Integrated Pressure Gauge
The PTA127 is a manual foot pump that can be used to pressurize passive vibration isolation systems where a constant supply of air is not necessary. The foot pump comes with a Schrader-type connector, pressure gauge, and 2 m of hose to allow convenient positioning of the foot pump.
