Vision IsoStation™ Optical Workstation Overview

Vision IsoStation™ Optical Workstations provide industry leading performance and more user friendly features and accessories than any other vibration isolation workstation. All of the features and accessories have been designed specifically to improve ease of installation, set-up and lab space utilization. 

Patented Modal Dampers for Highest Damping Performance

Our precision grade modal damped optical breadboards combine patented modal damping technology and a unique integrated broadband damping design to deliver supreme performance and reliability for the most critical applications. Patented modal damping technology (US 6,598,545) utilizes two pieces of uniquely designed dampers combined using specially chosen elastomers, to dissipate the vibrations evenly, quickly and effectively. The modal dampers are installed as the side panels along all four sides of the breadboard, ensuring superior damping performance. The red curve in the compliance curve shows the superior performance provided by modal damping compared to our scientific grade optical breadboards without modal dampers (shown in light blue).

Designed Workstations for Seated Users with Innovate Platform Interface

With an open-front design and included hip guard and arm rests, the Vision IsoStation Ergo has been designed for seated users. The Ergo provides extra legroom for seated people while maintaining sturdy support allowing more comfortable examinations, operations, and experiments. They feature a unique platform interface consisting of 4 corner constraints that act as a docking surface, an accessory mount and a restraint to keep the breadboard atop the frame. The interface also features float height indicators and frame bubble levels to make set-up and installation easier than ever.

Shipped Fully Assembled for Easy Installation

Another unique feature of Vision IsoStation is that we have designed a new shipping package that not only reduces packaging materials but also allows users to simply roll their system off into their lab, it’s as plug-and-play as can be! Since the breadboard is shipped pre-installed on the frame customers no longer need to lift the heavy breadboard during installation.

Field Upgradability from Rigid Frame to Isolated Frame

Vision IsoStation was designed with the maximum user flexibility in mind. When you purchase a rigid frame version of the workstation and later decide to upgrade to isolated frame, simply contact Newport and order an upgrade kit that allows you to upgrade your system in the field easily.
