MDE511 - Elliot Gold™ Series Fibre Launch System with Simple Adjusters

Elliot Gold™ Series Fibre Launch System with Simple Adjusters   


  • Suitable for multimode fibre (125 µm)
  • Orthogonal alignment grooves
  • 200 nm resolution with 2 mm travel per axis
  • 4.5 kg load capacity
  • Ultra-stable patented design XYZ flexure stage

Elliot Gold™ Series Fibre Launch system comprising: 3-axis simple manual flexure stage with basic fibre (US: fiber) holder, objective lens mount with RMS thread, and small fixed bracket. Suitable for launching free space light beams into multimode fibre due to its accurate 3D flexure-based positioning.

All accessories are compatible with the Elliot Gold™ series flexure stages. The optical axis height is 18 mm above the platform surface and on the centre line of the location slot. Where necessary a locating tongue forms part of the accessory. A standard clamp system is used and is supplied with the flexure stages and accessory platforms. The choice of objective lens is subject to user preference, and must be ordered separately. Extra clamp sets (MDE154) are available if required.
