TMC Mag-NetX Active Magnetic Field Cancellation

Product Code:
MagNetX
Manufacturer: TMC
  • Analog Controller with Digital interface – Analog control of Helmolz-type coils results in more precise real-time cancellation. Digital panel provides simple LCD read-out or PC-based Graphical User Interface (GUI) to the user.
  • Flexibility for On-site Tuning – Auto-tuning at start up for typical environments and applications, or adjustable on-site tuning for more challenging environments.
  • Real-Time Monitoring – Continuous monitoring with measured fields displayed via the PC-based GUI allows for fine tuning even without relying on microscope image.

Designed for use with any charged-beam instrument, Mag-NetX is an innovative active control system for the compensation of magnetic field fluctuations. With a proprietary analog controller with digital interface to the user, Mag-NetX provides more real-time cancellation with continuous monitoring, while providing the user with a simple built-in LCD, or PC based Graphical user interface (GUI). Continuous monitoring with measured fields displayed via the GUI allows for fine tuning without relying on the microscope image. Alternatively, auto-tuning provides easy start up for typical SEM applications.

With Helmholtz-type configuration available in a free-standing cage, mounted in tracks on the walls of the room, or direct mounted inside of enclosures, Mag-NetX can be configured to your needs and application.

Challenge TMC with your most demanding requirements for both magnetic field compensation and vibration control for scanning and transmission microscopes, electron beam lithography and ion beam instruments.

Controller

Dimensions 17 x 9 x 1.75 in. / 43 x 23 x 4.5 cm
Operational modes After power-on:
  • Automatic self test/calibration and switch to controlled mode in 1 min. No user involvement required.
  • Manual test/debug mode
  • True DC mode (compensating Earth magnetic field)
  • Offset-DC mode (ignoring Earth magnetic field
  • Track DC-shift due to microscope moving parts
  • Quasi-DC mode (ignoring >100 sec. fluctuations)
  • Cancel-and-create (simultaneously cancelling disturbance and creating custom field)
Types of control tools
  • Analog feedback with digitally controlled gain, DC - 2 kHz
  • Digital feedback
  • Digital feedforward (cancels AC-line power frequency and harmonics without gain-stability limits of feedback)
OK LED indicator green=ok; yellow=warning/error
LCD 2x20 symbol display Show menu and status
Bar-LED indicators Show XYZ real time strength of compensation field
4 directional buttons for LCD menu navigation
USB socket (appears as COM port on PC) Graphical user interface for advanced tuning/testing, accepts ASCII commands and shows menu
Aux. analog inputs (rear DB-37) Can be used as feedforward or to create custom field
GO - NO GO signal relay Binary, for use as input for protected system
