Newport's new Integrity VCS vibration control system was designed specifically to support basic optical research and development applications, whether at the university, college or corporate labs. Integrity Series Vibration Control Systems (VCS) are composed of two components: a damped stainless steel work surface and either rigid or pneumatic isolators with automatic leveling valves integrated into a new frame design to deliver an economical isolation platform with superior isolation performance.Different from the SmartTable® OTS Optical Table System, the Integrity VCS focuses more on research and development applications that do not require critical vibration control performance, providing a good damping and isolation solution at a low price. To adapt to your various applications and budgets, the Integrity VCS are available in more standard size options and several performance levels. Optional accessories are available to take fully advantage of the system.
With trussed honeycomb core design, proprietary tuned and broadband damping systems, the Integrity VCS family was designed to provide a superior mounting surface for vibrationally sensitive photonics applications. Whether you are looking for a table system for teaching labs, fiber optic communications, basic spectroscopy & microscopy analysis, imaging or holography, you can find a solution within the Integrity VCS family. The performance levels range from Integrity 1 which is the most basic, to Integrity 3, which is the best performance within the Integrity family, fitting any budget need.
Newports Integrity 1 Series VCS systems are often used teaching labs and non-interferometeric applications, such as communications using fiber or basic optical demonstrations. With the Newport configuration of broadband damping and honeycomb structures, the Integrity 1 provides an economical solution for standard vibration damping and isolation (with isolated option).
Newports Integrity 2 Series VCS systems are often used in basic spectroscopy, multi-mode fiber, micro-positioning, and other non-interferometeric applications. Compared to Integrity 1 Series, Integrity 2 has thicker working surfaces to provide better surface flatness and rigidity.
Newports' Integrity 3 Series VCS systems are often used in imaging, single mode fiber launch, micro-positioning or holography related applications. Compared to Integrity 2, Integrity 3 has built-in narrowband elastomeric tuned absorbers, further improving damping performance and reducing the table deflection.

To order Integrity VCS is easy with all the options. As an example, INT1-48-12-A is a 4 x 8 x 12 thick Integrity 1 Vibration Control System with isolated legs.
Currently the Integrity VCS family has 30 standard size options, shortening your lead time and accomodating your limited lab spaces. With the newly added 7 ft (2.1 m) and 9 ft (2.7 m) lengths as standard sizes, you now have more convenience designing your lab space!
*Note: Actual width measurement for 5 ft. wide tables is 59.06 in. (1.5 m)
The Integrity VCS frame mounted instrumentation shelf (INT- 6,7,8,9,10 overhead shelf) provides storage space for instruments, power supplies, and other accessories when a full enclosure is not necessary. The system is available in five sizes: 6 ft, 7 ft, 8 ft, 9 ft and 10 ft lengths. Simply match the shelf length to the length of your optical table.
Each shelf system comes complete with two frame mounted vertical supports an adjustable upper shelf made of particle board and aluminum angled extrusions that provide a shelf lip to prevent instrumentation from accidentally falling off the shelf.
Standard Integrity VCS does not come with casters. However, you could choose to field install them later. INT-C is a caster upgrade kit that provides easy mobility for your Integrity system. It is compatible with all Integrity VCS systems. The kit includes a set of four casters and all of the required mounting hardware.
Mounted on Integrity overhead shelf, the ATSE-PS Series universal power strips are available for many countries including USA, France, Germany, Japan, China, Israel, and many other countries. The power strip has six 16A, 250 V electrical outlets with a maximum capacity of 4000 Watts. The power strip has a no fuse circuit breaker and combined on/off and reset switch.
