Features

  • Control Rotation of Thorlabs' Scientific Cameras in Microscopy Systems
  • 1° Engraved Graduations, Labeled Every 2°
  • Compatible with SM1 (1.035"-40) or SM2 (2.035"-40) Lens Tubes
  • Suitable for Stable Mounting of Cantilevered Loads with up to 0.5 ft-lbs (0.68 N•m) Torque
  • Removable SM1- or SM2-Threaded Rotation Rings Also Available Separately

These 60 mm Cage Rotation Mounts are designed to provide ±8° of fine and 360° of coarse rotation angle adjustment for Thorlabs' Scientific Cameras. They can be combined with compatible Microscope Port Adapters to integrate the cameras with a variety of imaging systems. Each mount includes four Ø6 mm bores for use with 60 mm cage rods and a rotation ring with SM1 (1.035"-40) or SM2 (2.035"-40) internal threads. The rotation rings are removable and additional rings are available separately below. On the top of every mount is an engraved fine adjustment scale that has graduations every 1° with a range of ±8°, as shown to the upper right. Each mount has one 8-32 (M4 x 0.7) bottom-located tap for post mounting.

Scientific cameras with 60 mm cage rod holes, such as our Scientific CCD Cameras, can be mounted using ER cage rods and the four cage-rod holes at the corners of the mount. Cameras with a 30 mm cage rod hole pattern, such as our Compact Scientific Quantalux®, Kiralux™, and Zelux™ cameras, can be adapted to a 60 mm cage system hole pattern using the LCP4S cage plate adapter. Alternatively, a camera can be mounted to the rotation ring using the appropriate thread adapter (see below for more information).

60 mm Cage Rotation Mount with SM1-Threaded Bore

Camera Rotation Mount
Click to Enlarge

This mount offers 360° of coarse rotation via the rotation ring and ±8° of fine rotation via the threaded adjuster. The coarse and fine rotation are independent of each other and both positions can be locked using the respective 5/64" (2 mm) hex locking screws.

The recessed area in the back of the mount provides clearance for the camera's input aperture.
  • ±8° of Fine Rotation; 360° of Manual Coarse Rotation
  • Compatible with SM1-Threaded Components
  • Suitable for Cantilevered Loads up to 0.5 ft-lbs (0.68 N•m) Torque
  • One 8-32 (M4 x 0.7) Tapped Hole for Post Mounting

Thorlabs' LCP16R1(/M) 60 mm Cage System Rotation Mount with SM1 Threads provides ±8° of fine and 360° of coarse rotation angle adjustment for our scientific cameras. This mount features four through holes for ER cage rods that are compatible with Thorlabs' 60 mm cage system or cameras that use this hole pattern, such as our scientific CCD cameras.

A removable rotation ring on the front of the mount has 0.40" (10.1 mm) deep internal SM1 (1.035"-40) threads, allowing Ø1" (Ø25.4 mm) optics, Ø1" lens tubes, or other externally SM1-threaded components to be integrated with the rotation mount. Internally C-mount threaded components, such as Thorlabs' USB C-Mount CCD, Quantalux® sCMOS, or Kiralux™ CMOS cameras, can be attached to the rotation ring using an SM1A39 adapter; alternatively, the SM1T2 coupler can be used to connect internally SM1-threaded components, such as Zelux™ CMOS cameras or a selection of our microscope port adapters. Note that the back of the SM1-threaded bore has a retaining lip, so SM1-threaded components can only be mated to the front side.

A nylon-tipped setscrew secures the included LCP16RP1 rotation ring; this setscrew can be loosened using a 5/64" (2 mm) hex key to allow for 360° of manual rotation (see the image to the far right). Once this screw is tightened, fine rotation adjustment is achieved via a 3/16"-100 threaded adjuster. A fine adjustment scale engraved on the top of the mount has graduations every 1° with a range of ±8°.

Users can switch out the included LCP16RP1 SM1-threaded rotation ring with the LCP16RP2 SM2-threaded rotation ring, sold below, to integrate SM2-threaded components.

  • ±8° of Fine Rotation; 360° of Manual Coarse Rotation
  • Compatible with SM2-Threaded Components
  • Suitable for Cantilevered Loads up to 0.5 ft-lbs (0.68 N•m) Torque
  • One 8-32 (M4 x 0.7) Tapped Hole for Post Mounting

Thorlabs' LCP16R2(/M) 60 mm Cage System Rotation Mount with SM2 Threads provides ±8° of fine and 360° of coarse rotation angle adjustment for our scientific cameras. This mount features four through holes for ER cage rods that are compatible with Thorlabs' 60 mm cage system or cameras that use this hole pattern, such as our scientific CCD cameras.

A removable rotation ring on the front of the mount has 0.40" (10.1 mm) deep internal SM2 (2.035"-40) threads, allowing Ø2" (Ø50.8 mm) optics, Ø2" lens tubes, or other externally SM2-threaded components to be integrated with the rotation mount. Internally C-mount threaded components, such as Thorlabs' USB C-Mount CCD, Quantalux® sCMOS, or Kiralux™ CMOS cameras, can be attached to the rotation ring using an SM2A55 adapter.

A nylon-tipped setscrew secures the included LCP16RP2 rotation ring; this setscrew can be loosened using a 5/64" (2 mm) hex key to allow for 360° of manual rotation (see the image to the far right). Once this screw is tightened, fine rotation adjustment is achieved via a 3/16"-100 threaded adjuster. A fine adjustment scale engraved on the top of the mount has graduations every 1° with a range of ±8°.

Users can switch out the included SM2-threaded LCP16RP2 rotation ring with the SM1-threaded LCP16RP1 rotation ring, sold below, to integrate SM1-threaded components into the LCP16R2(/M) mount.

Rotation Rings

  • Compatible with LCP16R Series Rotation Mounts
  • Integrate SM1- or  SM2-Threaded Components with Mount

Thorlabs' LCP16RP1 and LCP16RP2 rotation rings are sold separately to allow users the option to switch the internal bore of an LCP16R mount from SM1-threaded to SM2-threaded, or vice versa. The LCP16R1(/M) mount (sold above) includes the LCP16RP1 rotation ring; likewise, the LCP16R2(/M) (sold above) mount includes the LCP16RP2 rotation ring. To switch the rotation ring in a mount, loosen the side-located 5/64" (2 mm) hex setscrew on an LCP16R mount to release the inserted rotation ring; replace it with the desired rotation ring and secure the setscrew.
