We are pleased to announce the launch of our new NGC3 Ion Gauge Controller
Posted on Tuesday 25th February 2020 at 15:00
Following on from the success of our NGC2D Ion Gauge Controller, we have worked to improve upon the NGC2D platform and are pleased to announce our new NGC3 Ion Gauge Controller. The NGC3 adds support for active gauge pressure measurement, using AML’s AGP-1 Active Pirani Gauge and many other low power active gauges. In addition, the NGC3 introduces four new ion gauge modes of operation, allowing greater control and taking advantage of the wider measurement range offered by the active gauge ... Read more
How does an ion gauge work?
Posted on Monday 9th December 2019 at 11:05
Ion gauge history AML’s nude ionization gauges are designed on the principals explored by Robert T. Bayard and Daniel Alpert in the 1950s. Commonly known as the BAG, or BA gauge, the Bayard-Alpert gauge is an evolution of the triode gauge developed in the early 1900s. The triode gauge used a cylinder as an ion collector. It was capable of measuring down to 10-8 Torr, with the lower pressure limited as a result of soft X-rays generating a photocurrent that added to and was indistinguishable... Read more
What makes AML’s ultra-high vacuum stepper motors unique?
Posted on Thursday 31st October 2019 at 16:22
Stepper motors are particularly attractive for exact positioning in a vacuum because they can precisely position, even without encoder feedback. Compared to motion feed-throughs, stepper motors offer considerable reductions in mechanical complexity and the absence of particle generation from metal to metal sliding surfaces. Vacuum environments pose considerable challenges when operating any type of electrical devices, including stepper motors. Conventional stepper motors are not suited for opera... Read more
