Battery Powered Ion Pump Controller V3 R0 [NOT RESTRICTED]

Product code: LSA3.0

The LSA3 is a battery powered ion pump controller with advanced features compared to the LSA2. It displays the pressure directly in mbar (for SAES™ NexTorr pumps of the types D100-5, D200-5, D300-5 and D500-5) and has an integrated alarm for low battery (and high temperature). A built-in temperature display system for a Pt100 sensor, ranging from -200°C to room temperature, makes it suitable for our LN2-cooled option of the VSN40S (see Cryo Version).  It also enables battery driven operation for a period of approximately 40h, powered by a NiMH rechargeable battery.

The LSA3 controller is designed to operate the following types of ion pumps:

  • Diode ion pumps (requires positive output polarity)
