Base Module NexGeneration UHV Suitcase S

Product code: VSN40S

The NexGeneration UHV Suitcase is as a truly portable, at the same time fully featured, 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 suitcase can be individually configured for vertical or horizontal usage and equipped with a transfer manipulator as well as a sample storage of your choice. Model and travel range of the transfer arm, as well as the sample-grabbing mechanism, can be combined in a modular way. The NexGeneration UHV Suitcase is fully compatible with our wide range of manipulators such as linear/rotary feedthroughs, wobblesticks and sample transporters.
The high voltage for the ion-pump element is delivered by the rechargeable, battery-driven power supply LSA3.0. 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.
