Instrumentation Shelves

  • 9"x13" or 14"x18" Surface
  • A Variety of post or Breadboard Mounting Options


  • Two Sizes Available for Mounting a Variety of Benchtop Instruments
  • Post Mountable to Conserve Optical Table Space
  • Vibration Isolation Accessories for Direct Breadboard Mounting

Our S913A Benchtop Instrumentation Shelves are ideal solutions for mounting instruments above an optical table or breadboard surface. The S913A can be mounted via our Ø1.5" posts in a stacked configuration, allowing multiple instruments to be located in a small space. For more details on the post-mounting options of the S913A, please see the S913A Mounting tab above.

The S913B isolation plate also measures 9" x 13", but does not have any holes or mounting pads. For additional vibration isolation, the S913B can be placed on top of the S913A shelf with a Sorbothane® sheet (sold below) sandwiched between. More details may be found on the S913A Mounting tab above.

The S1418 instrumentation shelf can be attached directly to a single P-series post. When large or uneven loads are going to be placed on the shelf, it is recommended that the shelf be supported at all four corners. To that end, the shelf has four 1/4"-20 (M6) tapped holes, one in each corner. These holes allow the shelf to be supported by our 1/2" posts and post holders. For more details on these mounting options, please see the S1418 Mounting tab above.


9" x 13" (228.6 mm x 330.2 mm) Shelf and Isolation Plate

The S913A shelf offers flexible mounting options to maximize the space on an optical table when using small benchtop instruments. To minimize the effects of vibrations from benchtop instruments, the S913A shelf and S913B isolation plate may be used with a Sorbothane sheet (available below) directly on a breadboard.


14" x 18" (355.6 mm x 457.2 mm) Instrumentation Shelves

The S1418 shelf offers flexible mounting options to maximize the space on an optical table when using larger benchtop instruments. It has a maximum load capacity of 35 kg (77 lbs) when measured 6.00" (152.4 mm) off center. The S1418 also allows for easy integration of our SP620 Power Strip, for details please see the S1418 Mounting tab above.


Sorbothane Sheets


  • 12" x 12" (305 x 305 mm) Sheet Size with 1/8" (3.2 mm), 1/4" (6.4 mm), or 1/2" (12.7 mm) Thickness
  • Easy to Cut and Shape for Multiple Uses
  • Hardness: 70 Durometer

These pliable Sorbothane Sheets are ideal for isolating mechanical noise or vibrations. The substrate absorbs up to 95.5% of impact energy and then reforms to its original shape. For objects over 5 lbs (approx. 2.2 kg), the thicker 1/4" (SB12B) or 1/2" (SB12C) sheets are recommended. Sorbothane sheets may be hand-cut, die-cut, or kiss-cut to suit various custom applications.


Our Mission is to accelerate the advancement of optical technology for precision measurements and their applications from the table tops of research laboratories to standard use in communication and high technology industries. Our aim is to serve our customers. Our hope is to create a place for highly skilled people in an open environment
