Active Inverted Magnetron Gauge
- Drive electronics combined
in the gauge head which reduces the system cost and saves valuable rack space
- Low output impedance and integral Faraday shield
provides high level of noise immunity and permits long cable runs (up to 100 m)
- Low magnetic field version – XL
for sensitive applications, e.g. mass spectrometry and electron microscopy.
- Interchangeable body tube
allows for rapid tube replacement without pre-calibration
- CSA, CSA/US Approved
meets safety requirements for electrical equipment for measurement.
Edwards Active Inverted Magnetron (AIM) Gauges provide accurate measurement over the vacuum range of 1x10⁻² to 1x10⁻⁹ mbar. These gauges have proved to be rugged and reliable in a wide range of applications, ranging from scientific instruments to industrial processes.
The AIM-X Gauge is an inverted magnetron gauge head and gauge controller combined into a single compact unit, and features a linear output for easy integration with a computer or PLC.
The XL variants have a very low external magnetic field, these are ideally suitable for use with sensitive analytical instruments or in applications where the gauge needs to be mounted in close proximity to a turbomolecular pump.
