The ESPion advanced Langmuir probe for rapid, reliable and accurate plasma diagnostics for industry and academia, featuring:
- 15 scans per sec acquisition rate with D-O-E interface for auto, semi or manual analyses.
- Hiden pioneers in passive RF compensation, ESPion has the highest blocking impedance of any commercially available unit (4.25MOhm at 13.56 MHz cf. 100kOhm).
- Gas cooled multi-inductor chain for high temperature plasma operation is user replaceable for tuning to other frequencies.
- reference probe compensates for low frequency effects e.g. shift in the plasma potential (e.g. anodised chamber walls) or noise (e.g. power supply).
- ESPion the fastest pulsed plasma specifications of any commercial probe, ESPsoft contains all necessary gating circuitry as standard.
- 300, 600 or 915mm auto linear drive options, interlocked isolation valve, 90° probes, combined linear – rotary drives options available.
- Self-cleaning cycle to limit probe tip contamination.
- ESPsoft control via RS232, RS485 or Ethernet LAN.
