Base Module Mini NexGeneration UHV Suitcase RM

Product code: VSN40M(CF40)

Wherever space is limited or if you just want the smallest and lightest UHV suitcase available, the VSN40M(CF40) is the ideal solution for transferring multiple samples at once between separate instruments. It is as a truly portable, especially compact, lightweight and slim UHV system. Availability of Combined Non-Evaporable Getter (NEG) and Ion-pump technology in the same pump made it's design feasible.

The samples are held in a storage mechanism such as a stack of receptacles or a carousel. Wherever only a single sample holder needs to be stored and transferred, this is also possible using a pincer grip, fork or similar.

The Suitcase can be individually equipped with a transfer manipulator of your choice. Model and travel range of the transfer arm, as well as the attached sample storing or grabbing mechanism, can be combined in a modular way. The Mini NexGeneration UHV Suitcase with CF40 flange is fully compatible with our wide range of sample transporters.

The high voltage for the ion-pump element is delivered by the rechargeable, battery-driven power supply LSA3.0B. The vacuum level is shown directly on the display optimized for SAES™ NexTorr pumps of the types D100-5, D200-5. The NEG element can be activated with any standard DC lab power supply.

- transfer manipulator
- sample storage or pincer grip
- power supply
- port aligner
