Breadboard Mounting Accessories for 66 mm Rails
66 mm Rail Connected to
Thorlabs provides two options for customers who wish to build a 66 mm rail system on top of an optical table or breadboard. The XT66P3 Horizontal Mounting Plate mounts rails parallel to the breadboard surface, while the XT66P1 Vertical Mounting Plate secures a 66 mm or 34 mm rail in a standing position.
Thorlabs offers an extensive selection of accessories for 66 mm rails, including clamps and angle brackets, breadboard mounts, mounting platforms, rail carriages, rail platform positioners, rotation slide platforms, rail joiners, and lens tube adapters. Together with size adapters that incorporate 34 mm and 95 mm rails into an XT66 setup, these tools provide a complete family of rigid, versatile building blocks suited for virtually any optomechanical setup.
The XT66P3 Horizontal Mounting Plate allows 66 mm optical rail constructions to be mounted on top of a breadboard or another 1/4"-20 (M6) compatible assembly. The top-located clamp tightens around the rail once it has been slid into its desired position and is secured by two spring-loaded M4 cap screws.
The counterbored slots at the corners of the mounting plate make it easier to align the rail with the tapped hole array on an imperial or metric breadboard.
The XT66P1 Vertical Mounting Plate orients a standard 66 mm or 34 mm rail in the direction orthogonal to the breadboard plane, enabling three-dimensional rail constructions. It bolts to the rail end using the four included M3 cap screws.
The counterbored slots are mechanically compatible with both imperial and metric breadboards.
