Passive Isolation Breadboard Support Frames




  • Load Capacity up to 700kg(1,540 lb)
  • Passive Isolation System
  • Four Independently Leveled Supports

Features

  • Support Frames Accommodate Breadboard Sizes as Large as 1200 mm x 1800 mm (48" x 72")
  • Available in 700 mm or 800 mm Frame Heights
  • Sturdy, All Steel Construction
  • Feet can be Manually Adjusted to Compensate for Uneven Floors
  • Set of Casters Available (PWA061, Available Below)

These passive isolation frame presents an ideal, cost-effective, vibration isolation solution for optical breadboards up to 48" x 72" (1200 mm x 1800 mm) in size. The frames are available for either standard loads of 24 to 260 kg (50 to 570 lb) or heavy-duty loads of 135 to 700 kg (300 to 1540 lb) and are supplied with a frame height of 800 mm (31.5”) from stock. Frames with a height of 700 mm (27.6") are available as make to order items.

The passive system is based on four independent, air-mounted, passive vibration isolators. The isolators can be inflated by a simple foot pump. With a vertical resonance frequency of 3.5 Hz, these isolators are an ideal solution for general photonic applications in a typical lab environment. Passive isolation is particularly effective for instruments with a high center of gravity, providing the stability and stiffness required to result in rapid attenuation of vibrational disturbances.

Each isolator consists of a cylindrical reinforced rubber air mount in the top of a steel leg, as shown in the drawing to the right. The pressure of the isolator can be adjusted by admitting or releasing air through a standard Schrader valve on the side of each isolator.

The tables below list the frame suitable for each breadboard size. For breadboard sizes which do not have a stock or make to order passive frame, we offer two options. Thorlabs offers a larger size selection of rigid breadboard support frames, and a passive isolator upgrade kit to retrofit a rigid frame with passive isolators.

 

Standard Passive 800 mm Support Frames

 

  • Sturdy, All-Steel Construction
  • 800 mm Frame Height
  • Load Capacity: 24 to 260 kg (50 to 570 lb)
  • Adjustable Feet with ±15 mm (±0.6") Travel Range

These standard passive vibration-isolation breadboard supports feature a frame height of 800 mm (31.5"). Our stock frames fit metric breadboards up to 900 mm x 1200 mm (or imperial breadboards up to 36" x 48"). These frames can support loads up to 260 kg (570 lb). The passive isolators are a static isolation system and do not require a constant air supply; therefore, our foot pump can be used to inflate the isolators.

The table to the right lists the frame suitable for each breadboard size. For breadboard sizes that do not have a stock passive frame, it is possible to purchase a rigid breadboard support frame and a passive isolator upgrade kit and retrofit the rigid frame with passive isolators.
