Magnetic bases reduce experimental set-up time by allowing free positioning and instant clampdown of optical components. They are the ideal accessories for all laboratories with ferromagnetic work surfaces such as Newport optical tables and breadboards.Newport magnetic bases use strong, stable magnets in a switchable magnetic circuit. The circuit routes the magnetic flux either through the ferromagnetic work surface (producing the strong holding force) or contained entirely in the base allowing quick repositioning.Newport offers an extensive selection of bases with features to satisfy every requirement. For component positioning almost as convenient as with magnetic bases, see Newports Model BUP-2 Universal Base and Models BK Series Kinematic Bases. These provide a patented, single-bolt tie-down anywhere on an optical table.
Newports Models 150 and 200 are premier magnetic bases that combine all the most desirable features including a high holding force that does not degrade with time, a low profile, generous mounting provisions, continuously variable holding force with easy-to-reach adjustments and a non-magnetic mounting surface.These bases incorporate an exclusive, stable magnetic circuit design, which linearly translates the magnetic elements. Unlike most designs that are unstable between on and off, the holding force of these bases may be continuously varied. An inset adjustment screw, which varies the holding force, is conveniently accessible from either side of the base.
Newports unique Model 110 Kinematic Magnetic Base is a space-efficient base that adds an inset kinematic interface to a generous array of tapped mounting holes. Components may be attached directly to the base, or the unique kinematic top plate lets you remove components and replace them with repeatable precision. Model 110 may also be attached to tables on its side.The kinematic top plate is equipped with spring-steel clamping hooks that hold the kinematic plates together. Alternatively, two bolts may be used to clamp the plates together. This provides secure clampdown of cantilevered or rod-mounted loads. The locking bolts are accessible even when a standard 1.5 in. (38 mm) diameter rod is attached.
The Model MB-3 Magnetic Base features an aluminum mounting plate, which provides two significant advantages compared to other economy bases: a generous array of tapped mounting holes, plus decoupling from the bases magnetic field.
The MB-1 Magnetic Base Plate quickly positions small components mounted via a single 1/4-20 (M6) bolt, such as VPH or MPH Series Post Holders.
The MB-2 Magnetic Base provides a single 1/4-20 (M6) tapped hole ideal for mounting VPH or MPH Series Post Holders.
