Newport Offers New and Improved Vibration Isolators ? The S-2000 Stabilizer Series

Newport Corporation, a worldwide leader in laser and photonic solutions that Make, Manage, and Measure Light®, announces the release of new S-2000 Stabilizer™ Series of pneumatic vibration isolators. This new offering incorporates Newport's patented self-centering pendulum design, laminar-flow damping system, and precision auto-leveling valves to deliver unmatched vibration isolation performance. Additionally, the new S-2000 design incorporates extra features including enhanced leveling indicators, recessed lifting channels, and a significantly lower magnetic permeability design. These new features greatly improve the ease of use, functionality, and extend the overall value for Newport customers. The S-2000, with a 2000 lb load capacity per isolator, is an ideal solution for isolating optical tables, large inspection equipment, heavy machinery, and large area sub-floors.

According to Warren Booth, Vibration Control product manager for Newport Corporation, "This new isolator platform combines the best performance features of our legendary I-2000 isolator with additional benefits which improve the overall functionality and value to customers. In addition to the unique ergonomic features, the aluminum hybrid chamber design is significantly less magnetic than the previous I-2000 and other competitive models. We are also making available a standard offering of fully non-magnetic models as well as cleanroom compatible versions in the next several weeks. With our hybrid-chamber design approach, we are also able to provide customized heights and varying chamber volumes to address a wide range of isolation requirements."

The initial offering of the S-2000 will be available in six distinct heights ranging from 16 in. to 28 in. all equipped with precision re-leveling valves. The S-2000 Stabilizer performance delivers a 1Hz vertical resonant frequency and a vertical isolation efficiency of 98 percent at 10Hz. Horizontal isolation begins at 2.5Hz and reaches 95 percent efficiency at 10Hz.
