The AOM110s are now improved with non-marring set screws and increased clear aperture at 45°.
The non-marring set screws permit rigid placement of various optic thicknesses, and the modified base design permits transmission of larger diameter beams at a 45° incidence.
With Aerotech's patented sub-arc-second positioner, the large angular range is quickly achieved, while maintaining resolution to 0.03arc seconds.
The thimble has a fine 32-division reference scale for convenience in positioning. These mounts have excellent thermal stability (less than 2microradians per °C), owing to careful matching of the coefficients of expansion for the special brass alloy drive screw and the aluminium housing.
AOM110 series mounts have ball bearing gimbal pivots to eliminate unwanted motion. Azimuth and elevation movements are decoupled and orthogonal. The bearing system permits operation of the mount in any plane, including upside-down.
A spring-loaded mechanism ensures low stiction, backlash-free motion over the full range.
Design features of the AOM110 Series of Optical Mounts include:
Improved design now includes non-marring set screws and rotating clips
Optimised clear aperture at 45 degrees
Accepts NLA nested optic adapters, extending flexibility and versatility
Options available for vacuum preparation and low magnetic interference environments
