Dovetail Optical Rail Systems are designed to easily mount and position a variety of optical components into optical systems. Rails feature clear holes and slots that allow for ¼-20 socket head cap screws to mount the rail to breadboards or optical tables. The dovetail design increases stability, and the rail’s V-groove allows it to be used as a V-block. Carriers are used to mount ¼-20 or M6 x 1.0 optomechanical components to a rail. Carriers utilize a two piece design to prevent screws from coming in contact with the rail, and to allow easy attachment and removal. Thumbscrews are used to lock the carrier to the rail. Dovetail Optical Rail Systems are constructed of black anodized aluminum to minimize stray reflections or glare.

Note: Rails and carriers are sold separately.
