Newport Introduces Low Cost Version of High Performance UltimaTM Mirror Mount

Irvine, CA – November 13, 2013 – Newport, a worldwide leader in photonic solutions, extends its leading line of opto-mechanical components with the new U100-S ULTIMA™ clear quadrant mirror mount. The U100-S provides the unsurpassed functionality and stability of Newport’s popular ULTIMA™ series in a new, highly economical package.

Priced 45% lower price than the high performance U100-A series, the U100-S features the same thick front and rear plates and optimized stiff springs for improved long-term stability and rigidity. The 100-TPI adjustment screws are threaded directly into the mount and provide ±4° of tip/tilt adjustment. Hard carbide pads enable smooth and repeatable motion.

“With its large array of optical mounting accessories, the ULTIMA series is an ideal building block for many optical systems”, states Rick Sebastian, Sr. Manager Product Marketing at Newport. “The new U100-S mirror mount features a patented clear quadrant design that allows beams to pass close to the edge of the mounted optic. Its combination of intelligent design, proven ULTIMA stability and highly competitive pricing make it a valuable addition to Newport’s broad portfolio of opto-mechanics.”

Like all ULTIMA mirror mounts, the new U100-S can be mounted to posts for adjustable height or pedestals for maximum stability at a fixed height. Convenient clearance mounting holes on each of the two sides are compatible with either 8-32 or M4 screws providing a quicker, more precise, and secure mounting.
