- Enclose Optical Path Between Two Components
- Easy to Integrate into Existing Systems
- Useful for Space Constrained Systems
These slip rings and clamps are designed to enable easy placement and removal of aluminum lens tube covers in optical systems. Ø1.27 mm aluminum lens tube covers and other cylindrical components can be mounted into a slip ring by passing them through the ring’s clear aperture and securing the flexure lock. To remove the cover on a clamp, simply unscrew the clamping screw(s), open the mount, and lift the tube out. This feature is useful for users who do not have the room to slide the entire cover out of a mount due to tight space constraints or are concerned with disturbing the rest of the system.

Two C128CC clamps are being used to secure an SC600 Lens Tube Cover between two KCB1 mounts to cover the beam path.
The C127TC Clamp incorporates a hinge design that utilizes one 5/64" (2.0 mm) locking cap screw. The hinged clamp supplies the mounting force needed to secure the component in place. The C127TC can be mounted directly to any of our posts using the #8 (M4) counterbore on the bottom of the clamp.
Alternatively, the C128CC Clamp is a two piece design that utilizes two captive 5/64" (2.0 mm) cap screws to connect the two pieces. A 5/64" (2.0 mm) locking setscrew is included to provide the mounting force needed to secure the component in place. Two #4 counterbores, spaced 30 mm apart, on the front of the clamp are included to attach the C128CC directly to any 30 mm cage component with 4-40 mounting taps. This allows for the creation of an enclosed optical path between two 30 mm cage accessories using our aluminum lens tube covers, as shown in the photo to the right and above. The two piece design allows the cover to be easily removed to verify or correct alignment issues. Two 4-40 cap screws with a 5/64" (2.0 mm) hex are included to mount the clamp. The C128CC is also available in a pack of four, item # C128CC-P4.
