Kinetic Systems have introduced a new lightweight benchtop vibration isolation system that is available through Warsash Scientific . The vibration isolation systems have been specifically designed for portability, the Ergonomic Low-Profile-Format (ELpF) can be easily repositioned on the benchtop, even with a load and in float. Its unique, self-contained design provides this without causing damage to the vibration isolators.
The Ergonomic Low-Profile-Format platform provides vibration isolation for sensitive devices and is an economical alternative to heavyweight models. It features a load capacity of 100 or 300 lbs in a very lightweight, ergonomic vibration isolation system.
The platform of the vibration isolation systems features a low profile (only 3” high nom), uses a small tabletop (16” x 19” standard), and weighs 40 lbs, making it very portable. Ergonomic features of the vibration isolation systems include gauges tilted upward for easier viewing and recessed handles for easy carrying.
Designed for use in laboratories and Class 100 cleanrooms, the ELpF platform is ideal for supporting atomic force microscopes, microhardness testers, analytical balances, profilometers and audio and other equipment.
Self-leveling and active-air isolation give the platform low natural frequencies (1.75 Hz vertical, 2.0 Hz horizontal) and typical isolation efficiencies of 95% (vertical) and 92% (horizontal) at 10 Hz.
Other tabletop sizes of vibration isolation systems can be customised per specifications. The top, which can be ordered with or without mounting holes, can be aluminum plate, ferromagnetic stainless steel, plastic laminate, or anti-static laminate.
