RS40 stages include a BM11.5 micrometer. The actuator is not included with RS65 stages. Please see specifications for recommended actuators.

Specifications

Features

Lockable Fine Rotation in a Low Profile

The RS Low-Profile series offers 10° fine adjustments, with ~2.5x smaller profile height than the 481 series. 360° coarse translation on the precision bored bearing locks in place with the smaller knurled knob in the thumbscrew on the side, which meanwhile engages the fine adjustment driven by actuators. The fine translation can also be locked down by tightening the bigger knurled knob in the same thumbscrew. 2° graduations and a Vernier with 12 arc min markings are engraved on the side of the stage.

Versatile Optic Mounting

The RS65 Rotation Stages feature 1.063"-20 threaded central aperture which allows secure mounting of 1.0 in. optic such as waveplates and polarizers using included retaining rings, 0.5 in. optic in PRA-05 Adapter, or 0.5 in. beamsplitting cube in CH-0.5 Holder. Glan-Laser Calcite Polarizers can directly thread into the tapped aperture. The RS65 mount also comes with a solid aperture insert RSA-1TI which will provide a centered clearance hole allowing on-axis mounting of optical component supported by an optical post.

Compatible Actuators

The RS65 Rotation Stages are actuator-driven stages supplied without an actuator to allow the user to choose an actuator type which fits the precision of the application. This allows a variety of actuators such as fine adjustment screws (AJS100-0.5), micrometers (SM-13), differential micrometers (DM-13L), or motorized actuators (TRA12CC, TRA12PPD, TRB12CC, TRB12PP). The actuators can be easily installed and interchanged.

Post or Table Mounting

While the RS65 stages can be directly mounted to optical table or breadboard using the clearance holes in the three corners, RS40 stages require B-2B (M-B-2B) slotted base plate for mounting to optical table, or other products with a standard 1 inch (25 mm) hole pattern. These stages can also be post mounted in a vertical configuration using the tapped hole on the side.

Easily Combined for Multi-axis Motion

The RS Series Rotation Stages are compatible with DS Series Linear Stages and GON Series Goniometric Stages of matching size (for example, RS40 with DS40-X, RS65 with DS65-X). They can be combined to provide multi-axis motion and can be easily adapted to fit a specific system's needs.
