Compact Alignment System
The Luminos Compact Alignment System is functionally designed as a complete station
or as a complement to existing equipment. All units are bolted to a
Base Plate making it highly mobile and reconfigurable to meet your application
needs. This system offers versatility for a variety of different inputs; with a
few adjustments a new project can be effortlessly accommodated.
The high stiffness and stability
of positioners affords easy
portability while making fine manual alignment possible. Luminos dual flexure system
employed in our positioners allow for manual alignment of assemblies with mode fields
as small as 1um. The complete Luminos Alignment System can be up and running in
your application for less than the cost of a typical isolation station.
With positioning this easy the possibilities are endless.
The Compact Alignment System can be built with any of the Luminos CORALIGN™
1 to 6 axis manual or automated 5x
or 25x Ratio Drive™ positioners.
Shown is one I1000
1-Axis positioner perpendicular to two mirrored
I6000 positioners. Each
I6000 positioner is equipped with a
V-Groove fiber holder and
Contact Sensor. Fiber holders are intersected by a Vacuum Part
Holder set on upon the
I1000 positioner. This setup illustrates how the Alignment System can be
configured for input/output of optical assemblies and complex waveguides.
- I1000 1-Axis
Positioner (add Y Stage
for 2 axes of movement)
- Vacuum Part Holders
- FH003 Extended
V-Groove Bare Fiber Holders
- Two I6000 6-Axis
- Contact Sensing
- solid 1" thick aluminum
- Stacking a Y Stage
on a I1000 1-Axis
positioner supplies an extra 3/4" of travel in the y axis for extra alignment.
- Adapter adds additional height where needed. Custom adaptors are available
- Adapter Plates AMA001
(requires AMA002) and
AMA003 provide a simple way to import existing standard optical equipment
into the Luminos Compact Alignment System.
