Optical Lens Mounts

Optical Lens Mounts are used to position or hold optical components such as optical lenses, optical filters, targets, or reticles in a range of applications. Through a variety of securing mechanisms, Optical Lens Mounts secure the optical component while minimizing the risk of damage. Optical Lens Mounts are available in manual or motorized varieties to provide varying options to meet any optical positioning needs.

Edmund Optics offers a wide assortment of Optical Lens Mounts such as C-Mount, Kinematic, or Gimbal mounts for integration into optical systems. The C-Mount Simple Lens Mount is a C-Mount compatible mount that uses a single retaining ring to secure optical elements up to 30mm diameter. The Motorized Kinematic Mount offers high resolution kinematic movement that may be controlled via a computer using an RS-232 serial interface. The Precision Gimbal Mount utilizes color coded micrometers to provide 360° angular translation, and 0.25mm pitch fine angular translation.
