Newport Corporation is adding the Guardian Series of active isolation workstations to its industry leading portfolio of isolation systems. With an unmatched vibration isolation performance, Newport’s state-of-the-art workstation is an ideal platform for super high resolution microscopy, metrology and other applications requiring very low frequency isolation. Guardian is an easy to use, fully integrated workstation requiring minimum installation and maintenance while providing unmatched vibration isolation and damping performance.
The Guardian workstation includes two active isolation modules that reduce translational and rotational vibration in all six degrees of freedom in real-time. Newport’s active vibration isolation technology removes resonance responses inherent to passive systems while providing up to 50 times (34 dB) more additional isolation.
The Guardian workstation combines active modules with Newport’s patented VIBe mechanical isolators to achieve the best performance across a wide frequency range. A precision grade optical breadboard with patented modal dampers installed along its perimeter provides effective broadband damping for delicate instruments.
The included Guardian Controller features real-time control display for all six axes and front panel access to the most essential functions. An extended set of control functions including 24/7 vibration data monitoring and recording is available via software.
