The M16 clearance holes can be used to attach our Ø1.5" Accessory Mounting Posts, which are compatible with the variety of workstation accessories mentioned below. The M6 clearance holes are useful for directly attaching Aluminum Breadboards or Ø1.5" Pillar Posts to the side of your workbench.  

Shelving, Mounting Brackets, and Component Trays
Thorlabs offers a variety of shelves, component trays, and breadboard brackets that can clamp onto a single Ø1.5" accessory mounting post mounted on the PWA120 adapter.

Computer Workstation Add-Ons  
Thorlabs offers the PSY121 Monitor Mount and the PSY132 Keyboard Holder as options for adding a dedicated computer terminal to a breadboard frame. Simply attach the Monitor Mount to any Ø1.5" Accessory Post secured to one of the outer M16 bores on the Accessory Adapter. Then, directly secure the Keyboard Holder to the M16 clearance hole which remains. Please note that the Keyboard Holder and the Ø1.5" Accessory Post cannot be attached to the same PWA120 if the central M16 bore is occupied.

Installation Process on Breadboard Frames
The PWA120 accessory adapter can be easily installed on any of our rigid, standard passive, or heavy-duty passive breadboard frames using the included screws and hex wrench. If a different orientation is required, the accessory adapter can be rotated 90°. When adding accessories to a table frame, the center-of-mass of the setup should remain within table frame area and heavy loads should be placed in lower positions to avoid affecting the stability of the frame. For mounting instructions, see the Manual, which can be found by clicking on the red Doc's icon () next to the item number below.
