Features

Platform Designed to Match Olympus Footprint

Newport's Olympus microscope vibration isolation platforms are specifically designed to match the footprint of Olympus microscope models minimizing the workspace required. They are designed to be very low profile raising the microscope by only 1 to 1.5 inches. Competing products typically require a supply of compressed air or nitrogen and come only in a few standard rectangular platform sizes. This will typically raise the working height of the microscope at least 3 in. creating ergonomic problems for the user. Because our products are made to fit your specific Nikon microscope, you don't have to worry about the added height or bulk that standard isolation platforms would require.

Superior Mechanical Design

VIBe™ technology works in horizontal direction by utilizing ball bearings sandwiched between precision raceways, forming the plane of isolation. When the ball bearings displace and restore into their positions in raceways, they act like nonlinear springs that cut off the transmission of vibrations. The oscillating motion of the ball bearings have no "natural" frequency, therefore the resonance between the two halves of the isolation plane become physically impossible. As a result, the isolator filters out a broad band of input vibration frequencies and insures a constant level of vibration transmission reduction. Vertical vibration isolation is handled by the Newport's proprietary, nonlinear spring mechanism with near zero tangential stiffness for vibrations. The natural frequency of the spring remains relatively low and constant across a large range of spring compression, effectively isolating the vertical vibrations.

Improve Microscope Performance

Depending on your environmental conditions, building vibrations and disturbances from surrounding lab equipment can impact a microscope’s performance. Using a vibration criteria curve, researchers can determine if the measured or anticipated vibration levels will allow imaging to the desired resolution. Higher resolutions require more control over vibration. An effective vibration isolation and control system needs to offer high-performance vibration resistance while maintaining a compact, low profile to decrease space requirements and increase usability. Our microscope isolators feature a 6.7 Hz vertical resonance frequency that begins isolating at 9 Hz and a horizontal resonance of 6.2 Hz with isolation beginning at 9 Hz. This is sufficient performance to eliminate more than 85% of vibration noise seen within typical laboratories.

VIBe™ Mechanical Vibration Isolation Technology

The patented mechanical isolation technology features six degree of freedom isolator design to work within a defined range of weight under which the isolators deflect or compress. The amount of deflection is a function of the payload on each isolator. Vertical and horizontal vibration is effectively attenuated and your precision application is isolated from the vibration. It is a great alternative solution for applications that are not suitable for pneumatic isolation.
