The IC Plus ionisation chambers are suitable for use in a number of diffraction and crystallography experiments, including protein crystallography. The IC Plus is available in 4 standard electrode lengths to allow optimisation of the detector energy range and fit the physical space constraints of complex end stations. All our IC Plus Ion chambers feature adjustable plate spacings of 10mm, 14mm and 18mm, allowing the user an additional means of tuning the signal strength

Features

  • Compact Design
  • Bespoke Aluminium extruded body
  • Adjustable plate spacing
  • Easy to change Kapton Windows
  • Quick-release, automatic shut-off gas valves

General Specifications

Operating principleGated integrator (charge integrating amplifier)Digitization16 bit bipolar
Integration capacitorDual, software selectable. Default values 100 pF and 3300 pF.ControlsTwo rotary switches for loop address and comms mode/baud rate.
Input noise< 200 fA rms unloaded. (1 second integration, 10 pF capacitor at <= 25 C ambient)DisplaysStatus LEDs (power, device status, comms mode, data RX/TX). “HV on” LED.
StabilityOutput drift < 200 fA / hour at 25 +/- 1 C ambient after stabilizationCase materialStainless steel sheet

External accuracyBetter than 0.5% of full scale in use, integration time 500 µsec to 1 sec, after calibration with built-in current sourceOperating environment10 to 35C (15 to 25 C recommended to reduce drift and offset) , < 70% humidity, non-condensing, vibration < 0.1g all axes (1 to 1000Hz)
Vibration must be as low as possible to measure at the lower limit of the dynamic range.
