Techspec multi-element tube system

Share this on social media:

Edmund Optics has introduced the new Techspec multi-element tube system, a highly versatile optical system that uses mix-and-match components. This makes this system ideal for prototyping and creating uncommon optical designs. 

The Techspec multi-element tube system works by combining multi-element outer tubes with multi-element inner single 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 on outer tube. This design allows optical spacing to be infinitely adjustable along the optical axis. To ease adjustment, Edmund Optics thus introduced a custom-designed multi-element tube tensioner wrench , which has a hollow bore to allow a pass through during adjustment. 

The system can be customised further by using multi-element spacer ring and spacer tubes to securely define optical spacing, multi-element Inner aperture to control internal beam diameter, and additional multi-element tube system accessories to connect systems together or expand systems' capabilities.
