Switch Types
Selectable for each switch channel separately

Standard

Dual-level switch
  • Output switches between two voltage levels Vneg and Vpos
  • Vneg ≤ Vpos must be fulfilled at all times

Option T (Trilevel)

Three-level switch
  • Output switches between three voltage levels Vneg, Vmid, and Vpos
  • Vneg ≤ Vmid ≤ Vpos must be fulfilled at all times
  • For applications such as injection, compression and ejection of ions

Isolation
Selectable for each switch channel separately

Standard

  • Maximum isolation voltage: 2.1 kV
  • Maximum burst frequency: > 10 MHz
  • Minimum pulse duration: < 50 ns
  • Propagation delay: 65 ns
  • Jitter: < 1 ns

Option H (HV Isolation)

High-voltage isolation
  • Maximum isolation voltage: 3 kV (5 kV or more upon request)
  • Maximum burst frequency: 2 MHz

Power Supply
Modification of entire device

Standard

  • Nominal operating frequency of the auxiliary switching regulators: 125 kHz
  • Optional dithering control

Option N (Low Noise)

Power supply optimized for low noise level at the switch output
  • Shielded transformers
  • Nominal operating frequency of the auxiliary switching regulators: about 28 kHz
  • Optional dithering control

Additional Features
Modification of entire device

Option E (Enable)

TTL input for enabling or disabling all switches
  • Connector: BNC socket
