Model 60000 Series Q Housing with various optical accessories.
Oriel's Series Q Housing, named for its quiet convection cooling, is one of our most popular housings for low wattage lamps. It's price, size, and versatility make it attractive to researchers. The Q Housing allows quick access to the lamp, simplifying lamp change. The hinged cover model 60030 , eliminates the need to lift the entire cover off the lamp housing. The 60030 has three output ports, compared to four for the 60000 .In order to make the Series Q so versatile (it holds 22 different lamps or elements, and has multiple output ports), we made it a modular enclosure. The heart of the enclosure is the model 60000 or 60030 Series Q, which is a shell with an X-Y-Z adjustable lamp base. Z travel is ±0.075 inch (±2.0 mm). To turn it into a functional lamp housing, you simply add the necessary lamp mounting hardware and condensing optics.
We offer complete Series Q Arc Lamp Sources and 10 - 100 W Series Q Quartz Tungsten Halogen Sources based Series Q Systems. These systems feature the 60000 Series Q Housing. You can easily build your own systems using the 60030 Hinged Series Q Housing, or a different configuration with the . You will need the following components:
The Series Q holds 5 families of lamps; a different interface kit is needed for each family. Within the same family, you can interchange lamps by changing socket adapters. We list all the lamps, with necessary mounting hardware, below.
The 60000 Series Q Housing has four ports; the 60030 has three ports. You can mount one condenser and plug the other ports, or use condensers an all available ports (depending upon the lamp) to simultaneously illuminate various targets. The radiating arc or filament of some lamps limit the number of sides from which you can collect radiation. With arc lamps and IR sources, you can produce four output beams; with QTH lamps, two output beams; and with deuterium lamps, one output beam.
The Series Q Housings do not include a condenser or a rear reflector; you must order them separately. We offer various condensers; they differ in the lens material, F/# and collection efficiency. We compare them in Table 3. All condensers are the 1.5-Inch Series size. Most of the condensers produce a 1.3-inch (33 mm) diameter collimated beam. We also offer imaging condensers which produce a focused spot. Typical spot sizes are listed in Table 2. The asphere condensers are "corrected optics." Their design ensures that they are corrected for spherical aberration and minimize lateral chromatic aberration.
We list a lens multiplication factor in Table 3. This factor is a measured parameter for each lens. It helps in computing the approximate total power of the collimated output in any wavelength band. We offer Calculating Output Power examples and formulas to compute the approximate output power from your source.
The 60005 is a broadband reflector mounted to an adjustable plate that fits in any of the Series Q ports. Mount it to the port opposite a condenser to collect the radiation from the back of the lamp and focus it near the lamp arc or filament, for collimation by the condenser (Fig. 2) (Tthis is most useful for arc and quartz tungsten halogen lamps). The reflector has external X-Y-Z adjustment knobs for tilt and focus. We also sell the replacement reflector, under model 60015 .
The Series Q Housings have four leveling feet. The feet allow 0.63-inch (16 mm) height adjustment. To mount the housing directly to inch (1/4-20) or metric (M6) optical tables, remove the feet and use the appropriate mounting holes. This puts the optical axis at 5 inches (127 mm) above the table surface.
