The PS-3 Precision Ground Stainless Steel Optical Pedestal maintains long-term optical system alignment. This 1 inch (25.4 mm) diameter post has a 3 inch (76.2 mm) height. Each post is marked with an index groove every 1 in. (25.4 mm) for a quick height reference. Cross-drilled holes allow 3/16 inch hex wrenches to aid in tightening and loosening assembled posts. An 8-32 threaded hole on each end allows optical pedestals and pedestal extenders to be attached together end-to-end using a setscrew. In-between heights can be achieved by combining a pedestal post with a 0.5 in. (12.7 mm) high post and/or spacers, available in 0.125 and 0.25 in. (3.18 and 6.35 mm) heights. For direct mounting to a threaded hole on an optical table, use a 1/4-20 to 8-32 thread adaptor. Optical pedestals enable ultra-stable mounting of optical mounts at low beam heights. Slotted clamping forks secure optical pedestals anywhere on an optical table.
