Hinged Clamps Allow for Quick Attachment to Mounting Posts
  • Strong, Melamine-Faced MDF Construction
  • Tilted Shelves for 900 mm or 1200 mm Wide Workstations
  • 12º Tilt from Horizontal Allows for Easy Viewing and Storage of Equipment
  • 2 mm Thick Steel Support Bar Securely Holds Equipment on the Shelf
  • Hinged Clamps for Easy Fitting
  • 300 mm (11.81") Shelf Depth
  • Max Load: 50 kg (110 lbs)*

These Overhead Shelves have a 12º downward tilt allowing for easy viewing, operation, and storage of equipment and accessories in the lab, as shown above. Each shelf has a 2 mm thick steel support bar on the front edge that extends 22.0 mm (0.87") above its surface to securely hold equipment and prevent it from sliding off of the shelf. This bar is attached to the shelf using seven provided screws.

The PSY150 and PSY150/S span the width of a 900 mm wide breadboard frame, while the PSY151 and PSY151/S span the width of a 1200 mm wide breadboard frame. Two 750 mm (29.5") tall posts are included with the PSY150 and PSY151 shelves for direct attachment to the PWA120 Accessory Adapter. If additional shelves are needed we also offer the PSY150/S and PSY151/S, which do not include mounting posts. These additional shelves are also ideal if you wish to use our PSY162 1000 mm (39.4") tall mounting posts (sold separately) instead of the 750 mm (29.5") tall posts provided with the PSY150 and PSY151. Two overhead shelves can be mounted onto a single set of mounting posts. All shelves can also be mounted directly to our standard Ø1.5" posts.

Each overhead shelf comes with two hinged clamps for attachment to mounting posts, as shown in the image to the right. To install a shelf, secure the clamps at the desired height on the posts. The shelf can then be lowered onto the clamps and attached using the provided M6 cap screws. At this point the shelf can be repositioned or leveled as required. For more details on installation, please see the manual, which is available by clicking on the red Docs icon () below.

Our PSY240 LED light strips or the HDPS12 power outlets can be mounted underneath the shelf using the M6-tapped holes provided.

*Please Note: The maximum load capacity specification refers to the downward force on the shelf and does not directly correspond to the maximum load of the support bar.

The PSY320 and PSY320/S Component Trays can be used to hold a variety of items, such as screws, hex keys, or other tools, near the working surface. A 12.7 mm (0.50") high lip on the four edges prevents parts from falling off of the tray, while the 300 mm x 300 mm (11.81" x 11.81") surface provides adequate space to hold needed tools. Each tray comes with a hinged clamp, shown to the right, to attach it to mounting posts. These clamps allow the tray to be installed anywhere on the post without removing the existing shelves. The trays also include a PSY322 Hinged Locking Clamp, which will hold the vertical position on the post while allowing for free rotational movement around the axis of the post.

A 750 mm (29.5") tall post is included with the PSY320 tray to attach directly to the PWA120 Accessory Adapter. If additional trays are needed we offer the PSY320/S, which does not include a mounting post. These additional trays are also ideal if you wish to use our 1000 mm (39.4") tall mounting posts (sold separately) instead of the 750 mm (29.5") tall posts provided with the PSY320. Each components tray can also be mounted directly to our standard Ø1.5" posts.

Each bracket will support any aluminum breadboard up to 300 mm x 300 mm or 12" x 12" in size, and has a maximum load capacity of 20 kg (44 lbs). A hinged clamp, shown to the right, is included to attach the tray to the mounting posts. Its design allows the bracket to be installed anywhere on the post without removing the existing shelves.

Locking Clamp Positioned Under Our PSY321 Breadboard Mounting Bracket, Holding it in Place and Allowing for Free Rotation of the Bracket
  • Retain the position of Ø1.5" Post Mounted Accessories
  • Hinged Clamb Design Allows for Installation Without Removing Existing Shelves
Thorlabs PSY322 Hinged Locking Clamps are the ideal solution for preventing the unwanted movement of accessories along the axis of the post. Locking the clamp in place (5 mm hex key included) directly under a post-mounted accessory, as shown to the right, prevents the accessory from sliding down the post when it is loosened for adjustments. This also allows mounted shelving or brackets to be freely rotated around the axis of the post to a needed position at any time.
