Newport’s New S-2000AN Non-Magnetic Vibration Isolator

Newport Corporation, a worldwide leader in laser and photonic solutions that Make, Manage and Measure Light®, introduces the S-2000AN Stabilizer Non-Magnetic Vibration Isolator. The newest addition to the S-2000 Stabilizer family is designed specifically for applications where the measurement of small magnetic fields would be otherwise impacted by traditional magnetic steel isolators.  The S-2000AN provides a 1Hz vertical resonant frequency and a vertical isolation efficiency of 98 percent at 10Hz and a load capacity of 2000lb, the best in the industry.  It is an ideal solution for isolating optical tables, such as Newport’s RPR-N Series tables or platforms that support large vacuum chambers or other heavy instruments used in materials research applications.  Newport is also the only supplier that has quantified the magnetic impact of the S-2000 Stabilizer family of isolators which allows customers to understand their required level of performance and potentially save thousands of dollars in equipment costs.

“One of the most exciting developments with our new S-2000 Stabilizer family is the product variations that we have been able to introduce from the core design that provides the same high performance at a very economical price,” commented Warren Booth, Product Line Manager at Newport.  “In extreme applications where it is essential that all magnetic materials be removed the S-2000AN is the best choice due to its aluminum and 316 SS construction.  In our tests our AN version induced only a 1.2nT change in measured magnetic field over a distance of zero to   2 feet.  This compares to over a 35nT change for traditional magnetic steel isolators.  What’s also interesting is that our standard S-2000A induced a 4nT change in the measured magnetic field which means for some ‘non-mag’ applications our standard S-2000A may provide sufficient magnetic immunity allowing our customers to save nearly $10,000 on isolation equipment compared to competitive offerings.”

In addition to superior isolation performance and quantified magnetic impact the S-2000AN features Newport exclusive SafeLock mounting clips which secure the isolators to the bottom of any Newport optical table, improving the performance, stability and safety of the system.  Available in several popular heights ranging from 16 inches to 28 inches, the new vibration isolator is equipped with precision pneumatic re-leveling valves and float-height indicators.
