Features

  • Multiple Options Provide Storage Above, Below, or at Table Level
  • Linbin Options for Organizing the Lab Space
  • Cable Tray for Sorting and Organizing Cables

Thorlabs offers a large variety of storage solutions for our optical table workstations. They allow lab supplies, such as general toolselectrical accessories, or fiber accessories to be stored away but close at hand for easy access when needed.

Our modular array of storage options can be placed above, below, or at table level depending on preference. Linbins and component trays provide organization of small to medium sized tools around the workspace, while a tool caddy can hold larger objects such as a BT17 (BT17/M) Benchtop Organizer. A cable tray is also available for sorting and holding cables in the lab. We also offer CMS021 cable identification ties that are ideal when sorting wires using our cables trays.

Similar to our shelving options and other accessories, all of our storage options can be selectively added when the need arises, allowing for a fully modular and customizable workspace.

Rear View of the MPT01 Storage Tray, Showing the Ø3.25" (Ø82.5 mm) Magnet
  • 6" (152.0 mm) Diameter, 1.2" (31.0 mm) Deep Bowl with Pivoting Plastic Cowl
  • Contents Retained Magnetically
  • Durable Stainless Steel Construction
  • Protective Rubber Cover on Magnet Prevents Marring of Mounting Surface

This Magnetic Storage Tray is ideal for storing small tools, cap screws, and other fasteners securely. The tray can be magnetically held horizontally or vertically to any ferrous surface such as an optical table or breadboard. When attached to a vertical surface, a plastic cowl holds nonmagnetic or loose items as shown to the right. The cowl pivots and clips in place at the upper and lower ends of travel to prevent accidental movement.

A rubber cover on the Ø3.25" (Ø82.5 mm) magnet protects the mounting surface from damage. The magnet serves two purposes; it attaches the tray to the ferrous surface and holds magnetic parts within the tray.

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 PSY322 Hinged Locking Clamp, shown to the right, to attach it to Ø1.5" mounting posts. Its design allows the tray to be installed anywhere on the post without removing the existing shelves. The clamp 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 lean bars of the optical table frame system. If additional trays are needed we offer the PSY320/S, which do not include mounting posts. 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, or if you wish to attach the tray to the TFA4 Overhead Shelf Post Adapter.

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 Clamp 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.
