Time-Of-Flight Analyzers / Multiscalers, Photon Counters

In Mass Spectrometry stop event pulses generated by ions arriving at the detector (typically a MCP) need to be precisely counted in the exact relation to their arrival time (TOF).  FAST ComTec has specialised in the design and manufacturing of instruments for ultra-fast pulse counting that meets this criterion.

The models  P7882P7888 Series, P7887 and P7889 are one of the fastest commercially available fully digital multistop time digitizers (TOF) with up to four inputs. These models have no dead-time aft recording a stop pulse. 

The fourth generation P7889 - for example - represents a breakthrough in time resolution and time range. Furthermore it can also be used to analyze the width of the arriving pulses with an accuracy of 100 pico seconds. FAST ComTec Time-of-Flight Analyzers are available with an number of options ranging from software DLL's for LabVIEW, C and Visual Basic to oven controlled oscillators

For measurements requiring very high time precision over a larger time range an optional Rubidium Frequency Standard is available. 

Our 2-Year Warranty covers all types of FAST ComTec Multiscalers.
