The PY005 stage provides five axes of adjustment in an compact package measuring 2.36" x 2.15" x 1.08" (59.9 mm x 54.7 mm x 27.3 mm). It has five 100 TPI actuators for adjusting the top platform's pitch, yaw, X, Y, and Z positions. Two actuators together control the yaw and Y-axis position, two actuators together control the pitch and Z-axis position, and a single actuator controls the X-axis position. The actuators have a 5/64" (2 mm) hex for adjustments with a hex key or our HKTS-5/64 hex key thumbscrews.

The translating top platform of the PY005 has a variety of mounting holes and taps, as shown in the drawings that can be accessed by clicking on the icon in the specs table to the right. These holes allow the platform to be used for many different applications. For instance, the eight 8-32 (M4) tapped holes and the #8 (M4) counterbore on the underside of the top platform, accessible from the bottom of the stage, allow optic mounts and other optomechanical components to be mounted on the platform, as well as the PM5(/M) stainless steel clamping arm. The eight 6-32 (M4) tapped holes are compatible with our PM3 and PM4 clamping arms (sold below). The holes are positioned so that the setscrew of the clamping arm is centered over the top platform. The two 4-40 (M4) tapped holes allow Ø1" optics to be mounted in our 30 mm cage optic mounts (Item # B5C1, B5CT1, or B5CT2).

Additional 6-32 (M3) holes make the platform compatible with our FT-EOMA bracket and MMP1(/M) top platform (both sold below) for compatibility with our EO modulators and 3-axis flexure stages, respectively.

The base of the PY005 has two counterbored 1/4" (M6) slots, as shown in the photographs below, for mounting the stage to an optical table or to the mounting accessories sold below. The mounting accessories are for general use and also offer enhanced compatibility with our EO modulators and 3-axis flexure stages. See below for details.

What's the maximum load if mounted vertically, i.e. with the adjustment screws pointing upwards?

Response from Bweh at Thorlabs USA: We don't have specifications for this configuration. We don't also recommend using the stage in this orientation as the springs are working against gravity either linearly or by a torque on the mounting platform. If you have to use in this way, it should only be with light loads such as a LMR1 with an optic at most.

Is there a way to get PY005A2 with a custom height? I would like to use the PY005 for aligning an AOM whose aperture should be at 3". I couldn't find a way to achieve this height. Is there some way to do that?

Response from Jeremy at Thorlabs: We can possibly do this as a custom. However, there might be other options available. I will contact you directly to discuss about your requirement.

PY005 with PY005A2 Pedestal Base and MMP1 Top Plate Used with a 3-Axis Flexure Stage for Fiber Coupling

Our EO Modulators Can Be Mounted Using the FT-EOMA Bracket and PY005A1 Base (Left) for a 2" (50.8 mm) Beam Height or Directly to the PY005 (Right)

  • PY005A1 is a General-Purpose Mounting Base
  • PY005A1 and FT-EOMA Used Together Mount EO Modulators with a 2" (50.8 mm) Nominal Beam Height
  • PY005A2 and MMP1 Used Together Create a 2.46" (62.5 mm) Nominal Deck Height for Compatibility with our 3-Axis Flexure Stages
  • Screws Included with All Mounting Adapters

Mounting Base and EO Modulator Adapter
The PY005A1 mounting plate has two 1/4" (M6) slots for mounting the stage to an optical table. By using CL5 table clamps, the stage can be mounted at any arbitrary position relative to the table's hole pattern. In addition, the PY005 stage can be mounted to the PY005A1 base with the adjuster face of the stage facing to the front, back, or either side of the base.

The FT-EOMA adapter allows our free-space electro-optic (EO) modulators to be mounted to the stage. When the PY005A1 and FT-EOMA are used together, the optical axis of the EO modulator is positioned at a height of 2" (50.8 mm) from the optical table. An EO modulator can also be mounted directly to the PY005 using the #8 (M4) counterbore accessible from the bottom of the stage. This counterbore is accessible even when the PY005A1 is mounted to the bottom of the stage.

Pedestal Adapter and Flexure Stage Top Plate
The PY005A2 pedestal adapter and MMP1 top plate allow the PY005 to be used with our line of 3-axis flexure stages (shown to the far right). When both parts are used together, the MMP1 plate is positioned with a deck height of 2.46" (62.5 mm) with the Z-axis translation of the PY005 at the middle of it's travel range.

Clamping Arm Extension Posts with Metric Indicator Groove

Thorlabs' Clamping Arms provide clamping force to secure optics to our kinematic platform mounts and V-clamps. The PM3(/M) accommodates optics up to 0.97" tall and features a 0.69" center-to-center distance between the post and the nylon-tipped setscrew that holds the optic. The PM4(/M) accommodates optics up to 1.61" and features a 1.16" center-to-center distance between the post and the nylon-tipped setscrew. The maximum optic height of the PM3(/M) or PM4(/M) Clamping Arms can be extended using our PM3SP(/M) or PM4SP(/M) Extension Posts, respectively. These extension posts are identical to the posts included in each complete clamping arm.

The PM5(/M) clamping arm is made entirely from heat-treated stainless steel, which helps maintain stability in fluctuating temperatures and provides vacuum compatibility. This clamping arm is recommended for use with the POLARIS-K1M4(/M), but it can be used with any platform mount that has one or more 8-32 (M4) tapped holes. The PM5(/M) can hold optics up to 1.65" tall, and the distance from the post center to the contact point that holds the optic is 0.90".

Each clamping arm is attached to its post using a flexure mechanism that locks with a 5/64" (2.0 mm) balldriver or hex key. The setscrew on top of the clamping arm also accepts a 5/64" (2.0 mm) balldriver or hex key in order to clamp down on the optic. The post includes a through hole which can be leveraged for added torque when tightening down the post. Please see the diagram above for additional information.
