Product Specifications : kSA RMAT
Rotational Monitoring And Triggering
Direct Coupled Hardware for Sample Analysis During Rotation
The Rotation Monitoring and Triggering (RMAT) product was developed by k-Space to meet the needs of scientists and engineers who desire an accurate, programmable trigger source coupled to a rotation stage during thin-film deposition or most any process with sample rotation. With the RMAT, the user can program precise trigger positions during rotation with 12-bit resolution, and use these triggers to initiate external events such as the acquisition of analytical images or other optical metrology at specific rotation angles.
Single dialog, windows-based software with integrated help manual permits easy access to the functionality of the encoder.
The encoder is equipped with a programmable logic controller (PLC) allowing positions to be programmed on the fly while the shaft is rotating.
Select up to 4 different trigger positions with precision to 0.088 degrees (12-bit) out of the full 360 degrees of rotation.
Trigger output is TTL-level and accessible though the encoder cable.
The trigger pulse width is programmable and can be set in the range of 1-255 msec.
k-Space can supply (optional) a custom shaft couple and encoder mounting plate upon request.
