Features

  • Customize Accessories to Suit Application
  • Multiple Shelving Styles Provide Extra Space Above Table Level
  • Articulating Keyboard Arm Declutters Workspace
  • Adjustable LCD Monitor Mount

Thorlabs' TA2 Post Adapter allows our post-mounted ScienceDesk accessories to be mounted on any standard optical table or breadboard. These accessories can be used to build an ergonomic 3D workspace environment. There are several shelving options that allow a user to place their instruments above the working surface. Unlike other, less ergonomic systems that use wrap-around shelving solutions that tend to form a claustrophobic and dim working environment, our accessory system allows the shelves to be added only when they are needed and to be placed only where they are needed. This leads to a more open and comfortable working environment. In addition to shelving, our accessory system includes a monitor mount, keyboard holder, and extra mounting posts. The stainless steel mounting posts for the shelves are an industry standard Ø1.5", which make them compatible with many optomechanical components.

Please note that all of these accessories are directly compatible with our ScienceDesks.

Tabletop Post Mounting Adapter

The TA2 Post Adapter allows a Ø1.5" ScienceDesk post to be fitted to an optical table or breadboard. With this adapter, post-mounted ScienceDesk accessories such as monitor mounts, keyboard rests, and shelves can compliment nearly any standard breadboard or table, increasing usable workspace.

The adapter features elongated slots and is supplied with a replacement post stud, together with M6 and 1/4"-20 bolts to fit to either metric or imperial work surfaces. Two adapters are necessary to attach the two posts required for fitting an overhead shelf unit. The adapter is fitted to the ScienceDesk posts via an M16 counterbore.

  • Max Load: 50 kg (110 lbs)

The PSY221 and PSY222 Overhead Shelves span the width of the ScienceDesk and are supported by two 750 mm (29.5") tall posts (included). Slide the shelf along the post to the desired height above the work surface and then secure it using the hinged clamps. Up to two shelves can be mounted onto a single set of supporting posts. Additional shelves are sold separately; select the PSY223 additional shelf unit if purchasing the PSY221 overhead shelf and the PSY224 unit if purchasing the PSY222 overhead shelf.

Each shelf has two hinged clamps, allowing it to be easily positioned by one person anywhere along the post, without needing to remove the existing shelf. Simply secure the clamps to the posts, fit the shelf to the clamps using the M6 bolts provided, and reposition or level 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. Our TA2 post adapters, sold above, allow these shelves to be mounted directly to an optical table or breadboard as shown in the photo to the right.

  • 2 mm Thick Steel Support Bar Securely Holds Equipment on the Shelf
  • Hinged Clamps for Easy Fitting

  • 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 ScienceDesk Frame, while the PSY151 and PSY151/S span the width of a 1200 mm wide ScienceDesk frame. Two 750 mm (29.5") tall posts are included with the PSY150 and PSY151 shelves for direct attachment to the ScienceDesk frame. 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 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.
