Agilent's Ion Pump Controller Accommodates Four Pumps Independently
Agilent Technologies, Inc. introduced the 4UHV Ion Pump Controller, a flexible design able to power, control and independently monitor up to four ion pumps, with capacities ranging from 20 to 500 liters per second each.
"Due to the controller's low-electrical-noise design, original equipment manufacturers will enjoy the freedom to eliminate or shrink electrical noise filters in critical applications," said Giampaolo Levi, vice president and general manager, Agilent Vacuum Products Division. "Because this new controller shares its communication protocol with our other controllers for turbomolecular and pre-vacuum pumps, less engineering work is required as well."
Agilent offers a portfolio of pumps and systems to create vacuum from atmosphere down to 10-12 mbar, for a range of industrial and scientific applications, including rotary vane, dry scroll, diffusion, turbomolecular, ion pumps and turbo pumping systems.
The 4UHV is the new member of the Agilent VacIon Plus family, a complete line of ion pumps, controllers, options and accessories dedicated to ultra high vacuum (UHV). Applications include high-energy physics, research and development, nanotechnologies (typically scanning electron microscopes).
