Kinematic Mirror/Beamsplitter Mounts 5MBM24 are used for precise angular and linear alignment of optical elements.
There are two models: one with round (5MBM24-1, 5MBM24-2, 5MBM24-3) and one with square (5MBM24-1SQ, 5MBM24-2SQ, 5MBM24-3SQ) shaped mounting opening.
5MBM24-1-2 for Ø25.4 mm (1 inch) optics
5MBM24-2-2 for Ø50.8 mm (2 inch) optics
5MBM24-3-2 for Ø76.2 mm (3 inch) optics
5MBM24-1-2SQ for square 25.4 mm (1 inch) optics
5MBM24-2-2SQ for square 50.8 mm (2 inch) optics
5MBM24-3-2SQ for square 76.2 mm (3 inch) optics
5MBM24 has a resting flange to stop the optics. One fixing screw (two in “square” mounts) secures the optics against 2 contact lines, which make 2 contact points. To prevent damage to the optics, the tip of the fixing screw is made of plastic. Square mount additionally has 4 fixing screws for thin optics. They have conic tips to work as wedges to clutch a thin plate of optics to the resting flange. For thick optics it has 2 screws rather than one. A platform is preloaded by two strong coil springs, ensuring tight kinematic fit. A thick base adds to stability. This allowed us to eliminate part of the mount, keeping clear one edge of the optics. Useful in schemes where beams go very close to each other.
As standard, we fit screws 9S127. You may order the mounts with 2 or 3 driving screws. Choose any screw and removable knob found in Fine adjustment screws section. 5MBM24-1-3 uses three Fine Screws 9S127 (with knobs) 5MBM24-1-3SH uses three Fine Screws 9SH127 (without knobs) risk of tampering is reduced (hex key included)
5MBM24-2-2SH uses two Fine Screws 9SH127 (without knobs)
5MBM24-2-3 uses three Fine Screws 9S127 (with knobs)
