This two-position, high-speed flipper has been designed to flip a lens, filter, or other optical component into and out of a free-space beam. The unit is designed to be mounted on a standard M4 or 8-32 post.
The flip action is controlled by a button on the top of the unit. The flipper position toggles 90° between vertical and perpendicular with each button press. The unit has two SMA connectors, marked TRIG IN and TRIG OUT, for use in applications requiring an external or remote trigger. The trigger is a TTL logic high going 5 V pulse, which toggles the flipper position. The rear face of the unit features an array of vent holes to aid cooling. A TPS001 universal power supply is included with the unit, as is a location-specific adapter.
A remote handset (MFFHS1) is available for use with the MFF001. This small (40 mm x 40 mm x 20 mm) unit is powered by a 3 V lithium battery and shipped with a 2 m long cable. The cable can be extended up to 3 m using a standard SMA to SMA cable. To comply with EMC regulations, the total cable length should be no longer than 3 m.
The mount is supplied complete with our LMR1 (/M) Ø1" optics mount, but is compatible with holders in the LMR range up to 1.5" (38.0 mm) diameter as detailed below. Screws are supplied for both imperial and metric lens holders. The flipper mount is ideal for many optics, including mirrors. When used with a mirror, please note that the MFF001 is not recommended for applications requiring better than 100 µrad beam stability.
Please note that optics in excess of 1.5" (38.0 mm) diameter will affect the functionality of the flipper due to increased inertia. The maximum torque applied to the unit must not exceed 35 N·mm. The table below details the maximum combined weight of the optic and the associated optic holder. The maximum weight of the optic alone is in parentheses.
