Thorlabs currently offers three options for mounting computer accessories around the ScienceDesk™ frame and off of the isolated worksurface. First, a monitor mount can be attached on any of our Ø1.5" mounting posts and allows 360° flexible positioning of an LCD monitor. Secondly, our keyboard holder attaches directly to the frame and also provides 360° positioning along with vertical adjustments for comfort. Finally, we offer a computer shelf that provides extra support by overhanging the ScienceDesk frame.

Please Note: These accessories are compatible with our current ScienceDesks (SD Series) and cannot be used with our former generation (PS Series) products sold before March 2009.

Uses a different size post than the monitor mount so the system is not interchangeable. Why the heck isn't all the same size and then have a post that mounts directly to 1" spaced optical table. This looks exactly like the Newport version but they also sell the monitor mounts and posts. Shop Newport on this one.

Response from Charles at Thorlabs: Hello Karl, thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We will bear this in mind should this range of accessories come up for a design review.

Is there an adapter to easily secure the PSY132 Keyboard Holder to a 1.5" post?

Response from Dinuka at Thorlabs: Thank you for your question here. Unfortunately the arm post mount of the keyboard holder will have a slight size difference to a 1.5'' post. Therefore it wouldn't be held properly.
