The ESK15(/M) Pillar Post System Essentials Kit provides the components to build rigid supports for optical systems. This kit includes Ø1" posts, construction cubespost clamps, and bases. The pedastal posts can be placed with freedom using clamp forks, while the pillar posts can be screwed directly into the table, stacked as extensions to other Ø1" posts, or attached to bases. This kit also comes with extra drawer dividers. Refer to the Contents tab above for detailed information about the components included with the imperial and metric versions of the kit.

Mounting Options
The kit can be stored on a tabletop for easy, convenient access or placed on an RK4101 or RK4102 rack shelf, both of which can be installed in our RK3884 standard 19" rack. The image to the right shows an ESK15 kit as well as another custom-labeled S19909 cabinet installed in a 19" rack. The cabinet used in each Essential Series Kit features slots in the rear of the case (see image to far right) for wall mounting and features indentations on the top and four feet on the bottom for stable stacking. Warning: each kit weighs 47 lbs (21.3 kg); ensure that the wall and wall mounts can support at least this weight before mounting the unit.

Kit Components

Each kit includes the components below and an S19909 9-Drawer Cabinet. In cases where the metric and imperial kits contain parts with different item numbers, metric item numbers and measurements are indicated in parentheses.
