Edmund Optics, a provider of optical components, has introduced a new Multi-Element Tube System. The TECHSPEC Multi-Element Tube System creates highly versatile optical systems, using mix-and match components allowing, said the company, unprecedented adjustability. It added that this makes the system ideal for prototyping and creating uncommon optical designs.
Multi-Element Tube System works by combining Multi-Element Outer Tubes with class Multi-Element Inner and Pair Optic Mounts to create a complete system. The Outer Tubes have M29 threads running down their entire length; Inner Single, and Pair Optic Mounts have M29 threads along their outer diameters, allowing them to be placed anywhere within an Outer Tube.
The design allows optical spacing to be infinitely adjustable along the optical axis. To ease adjustment, Edmund Optics also introduced a custom-designed Multi-Element Tube Spanner Wrench, which has a hollow bore to allow a beam to pass through during adjustment.
The Multi-Element Tube System can be further customised by using Multi-Element Spacer Rings and Spacer Tube to securely define optical spacing, Multi-Element Inner Apertures to control internal beam diameter and additional Multi-Element Tube System Accessories to connect systems together, or expand systems’ capabilities.
The Multi-Element Tube System accommodates circular optics with diameters from 5 mm to 25,4 mm and edge thicknesses up to 17 mm. System lengths can range from 15 mm to 100 mm and can be combined to expand capabilities. Multi-Element Tube System components are in stock and available for immediate delivery.
