Q1000-T – cluster quadrupole

For further information and pricing, please get in touch with us.

Cluster Series Systems

The Hiden cluster components include 9mm and 20mm pole diameter quadrupole assemblies with high-power RF operating at optimum frequency to accommodate high mass transmission required in cluster analysis.




The quadrupole analyser is a precision assembled triple mass filter with unique, independently driven RF only secondary filter stages preceding and following the primary mass filter. A UHV low profile electron impact ioniser with twin oxide coated iridium filaments and a pulse ion counting single channel electron multiplier detector are included as standard. A Faraday detector option extends the dynamic range to 5 x 1010.

Mass range options for the cluster series are: 1000, 2500, 4000, 5000, and 20,000 amu   

 The quadrupole analyser includes an electron bombardment ion source for analysis of neutral species. Ionised species may be directly measured, the analyser reference potential (pole bias) being variable through the range +/- 100 eV.


  • Precision Tri-Filter quadrupole assemblies
  • Air Gauge tested for conformity
  • 9 and 20mm pole diameter options
  • Mass range options to 20,000 amu
  • 90 degree ion beam deflector option

The system is supplied with MASsoft Professional software.

This Windows 10 and Windows 11 compatible software allows control of the instrument via USB 2.0, RS232 or Ethernet. Provides comprehensive I/O for data output and for reading data from external devices for integration and display with mass spectrometer data.

The iRGA software is a new and intuitive application for routine vacuum monitoring. It is designed to be simple and automatic.

  • automatically provides partial pressure data for the common residual gas and vapours, including hydrogen, helium, water, nitrogen, oxygen, argon and a custom gas.
  • includes a new tablet view where the background colour changes depending on alarm condition
  • includes a trend view, scan, leak detection and maintenance modes
  • includes alarm function to send alerts to internal I/O, Wi-Fi and by email
