XM Series Wire Rope Isolator

The incredibly unique design of the XM Series makes this isolator an ideal choice for light weight equipment requiring a high level of shock & vibration isolation. The symmetrically balanced “X” shaped cables gives this isolator a high degree of vertical stability (even under large excursions) and torsional resistance. It is this characteristic that makes the XM series wire isolators vastly superior over similar mounts that have a tendency to collapse or buckle under large motions. The cables of this wire isolator are mechanically fastened to the two retainers which provide the same wide temperature range as the SM series cable isolators.
