1/2" (13 mm) Travel Vertical Translation Stage
1/2" (13 mm) Travel Vertical Stage
MVS005 with MMP1 Grooved Top Plate
The MVS005(/M) Vertical-Axis Positioning Stage has been developed to meet the stringent requirements associated with aligning optical components. It allows 0.5" (13 mm) of height adjustment and provides a working height range of 2.48" to 2.98" (63.0 mm to 76.0 mm). The stage is constructed from black anodized aluminum and includes crossed roller bearings for uniform performance over the entire range of motion.
The top mounting plate has a generous array of thirteen 1/4"-20 (M6) and twelve 8-32 (M4) tapped holes. If required, the user can replace the top plate with our MMP1(/M) grooved top plate, allowing the stage to be used with our range of flexure stage accessories. Three extended top platforms are also available for use in applications that require extra reach beyond the edge of the vertical stage.The stage is shipped complete with a 148-811ST (148-801ST) fine-adjustment micrometer drive with a 0.001" (10 µm) graduated scale. It delivers 0.025" (500 µm) of height adjustment per revolution, making the stage ideal for aligning a wide range of optical components. For motorized vertical translation, the included micrometer can be replaced with one of our 1/2" (12 mm or 13 mm) ZST, ZFS, or Z8 actuators.
The RB13P1(/M) Mounting Plate is the same as the top plate that is included with the MVS005(/M) vertical stage. It has a generous array of thirteen 1/4"-20 (M6) and twelve 8-32 (M4) tapped holes. For more details, please see the mechanical drawings of the imperial and metric top plates included in the table above and to the right.
The MMP1(/M) replacement grooved top plate allows MVS005(/M) stages to be used with our range of flexure stage accessories (such as the HCS030 Optic Mount shown to the right). The top plate is easily changed by removing four attachment screws with a 2 mm hex key or balldriver.
Our range of flexure stage accessories includes mounts to hold and manipulate optical fibers, laser diodes, gradient-index lenses, spherical lenses, and other commonly used optical components. Accessories are mounted to the top platform using a tongue-in-groove system and are retained with cleats and cap screws. The plate includes sixteen 6-32 (M3) tapped holes for cleats and other hardware, as well as four 4-40 (M2) taps and nine 8-32 (M4) taps. For more details, please see the mechanical drawings of the imperial and metric top plates included in the table above.
These extended platforms are designed to be replacements for the top plate of the MVS005(/M) vertical stage. The extended mounting surface contains an array of 8-32 (M4), 6-32 (M3), and 4-40 (M2) tapped holes, which are convenient for attaching components or accessories that need to reach into smaller spaces. Three sizes are available, offering platform lengths of 88.0 mm (3.46"), 95.0 mm (3.74"), or 105 mm (4.13"). Two AMA010 (AMA010/M) accessory mounting cleats are also included with the purchase of each platform. These platforms can also be used with our Multi-Axis Flexure Stages.
