Fixed-power beam expanders

Family of beam expanders offers high-performance optical designs packaged in a precise opto-mechanical platform.

FEATURES & BENEFITS

  • 3, 5, 10, 15, or 20 × beam expansion power
  • Two full rotations of focus knurl provide smooth movement and vary output to minimum distance of 1.2 m
  • Non-rotating optics maintain bore sight accuracy and minimally aberrated focused beam
  • Secure easily to metric and English threaded mounts
