SM2-Compatible Translation Mounts
High Resolution Adjusters Provide 250 µm/rev for Micron Sensitivity
SM2 (2.035"-40) Threads Compatible with Our Extensive Selection of SM2 Lens Tubes
Wobble: <100 µrad
Max Optic Thickness: 12 mm
This mount utilizes two M3 x 0.25 fine adjustment screws to provide ±1 mm of travel along both axes perpendicular to the optical axis. The 250 µm/rev adjustment screws have 5/64" hex socket in the back end of each screw so that hex key may be used to achieve for better feel than the thumb screw knob when making small incremental movements. The mounting bore for the optic is SM2 (2.035"-40) threaded, which makes the mount compatible with SM2 lens tubes and other SM2-threaded components. The optic is held in the mount using the included SM2RR retaining ring.
The CXY2 XY Translator provides ±2 mm of travel perpendicular to the optical axis in a 60 mm cage system. The moveable carriage is internally SM2 (2.035"-40) threaded and accepts Ø2" optics up to 0.59" (15.0 mm) thick. Thicker optics can be mounted into an SM2 lens tube, which then may be attached to the front of the translator. The fixed backside is also SM2 threaded to allow SM2 lens tubes to be attached. While the mount features a non-rotating center carriage, the mount does feature horizontal and vertical tick marks to ensure proper alignment of the moveable carriage.
The SPT2 Slip Plate Positioner is designed to provide coarse XY positioning of Ø2" optical components within our 60 mm cage assembly system. The SM2-threaded bore can mount optics up to 0.30" (7.6 mm) thick using two SM2RR retaining rings (not included). This design provides manual adjustments of ±2 mm of travel and is best utilized in conjunction with an alignment laser to monitor the centricity. The images below detail how to adjust and lock the SPT2.
