Kinetic Systems has released an ultra-low-frequency (ULF) Vibration-Isolation Workstation for lighter loads.
The device will be distributed by Elliot Scientific in the UK and Ireland. The Kinetic Systems’ 2800 Series LLHP is designed to meet the exacting requirements of sensitive equipment weighing in the 50kg range (90kg max).
The tabletop - with or without mounting holes - is normally a lightweight aluminium extruded core 76cm square and 5cm thick, but it can also be constructed from a variety of other composite cores on request.
The trifilar pendulum mounts and active-air suspension used in the table’s construction provide good horizontal axis vibration isolation, and a high level of isolation in the vertical axis. Isolation efficiencies of 96 per cent vertical and 97 per cent horizontal (at 10 Hz and above) are typical.
The compact and ergonomic design of the 2800 Series incorporates automatic levelling and low natural frequencies (1.1Hz along horizontal axis and 1.4Hz along vertical axis), making them ideal for supporting atomic force microscopes, analytical balances and so on.
The new table can be configured for Class 100 cleanroom compatibility and fitted with a variety of accessories to increase user comfort. These include padded armrests, overhead equipment shelves, monitor stands and power outlets for example.
The Kinetic Systems workstations available through Elliot Scientific are proven performers in the semiconductor processing, telecommunications, aerospace engineering and medical research fields.
