High-Load Pitch and Yaw Platform
Provides Pitch and
PY004 Pitch/Yaw Platform with HeNe Laser Mounted in V-Clamp
This High-Load Pitch and Yaw Platform provides ±2.5° of adjustment in pitch and ±4.0° in yaw. It is designed for use with up to 5 kg (11 lb) loads, such as lasers, cameras, and 3-axis stages. The actual maximum load will depend on the positioning of the load on the platform (see the Specs tab for more details). The top platform is equipped with an array of 24 1/4"-20 (M6) threaded mounting holes on 1" (25 mm) centers.
The high-resolution micrometers incorporated into the stage are marked with a vernier scale and provide positioning accuracy within 9 arcseconds in pitch and 16 arcseconds in yaw. Turning the micrometers gives 0.5° of pitch and 0.9° of yaw per revolution. Additionally, this stage is compatible with other micrometers with a Ø3/8" mounting barrel. The stage can also be motorized using our 1/2" travel actuators with Ø3/8" mounting barrels, such as Thorlabs Z812B DC Servo Actuators (shown to the left) or ZST213B Stepper Motor Actuators.
The base of the pitch and yaw platform is provided with a series of through holes for attachment to metric or imperial optical tables and breadboards. These holes allow the unit to be mounted with the top platform holes in line with the worksurface hole pattern or midway off the table's hole pattern. The unit can also be secured at any arbitrary position by using two CL6 table clamps.
