Pulse Generator controls differential pumping system.
January 27, 2011 -
Model 725 Multi-Trigger Pulse Generator includes TimerPro software for visual control of 8 inputs, 8 outputs, and 8 triggers, and which controls delays and gates to valves, transfer coils, and deflector plates. Measuring 20.8 x 24.2 cm, product features timing unit that routes light pulses into chamber for storage, transfers it to second chamber, and then emits it from that chamber. Generator has 8 timing processors capable of less than 1 Ķs timing, and each timer can run in one of eight modes.

TimerPRO Offers Microsecond Control of Differential Pumping System
Berkeley Nucleonics Corp is now offering the Model 725 Multi-Trigger Pulse Generator with TimerPro, a handy software application for visual control of 8 inputs, 8 outputs and 8 triggers. The small footprint is ideal for chamber or remote operations, measuring just 20.8cm x 24.2cm. The ability to graphically interrelate the 8 inputs and 8 outputs expand testing functionality without additional instruments and cables.
For Differential Pumping Systems, TimerPRO controls the delays and gates to valves, transfer coils and deflector plates. A single PC application enables storage of setup parameters or on-the-fly system modifications. The timing unit will route the users light pulses into a chamber for storing light, transfer that light to a second chamber at appropriate times and then emit light from the second chamber. The entire process is controlled and repeatable.
"Experiments and system testing used to demand a bench full of gear, with proper cabling and filters slowing down setup times. The Model 725 combines many functions and yet takes up so little space. With sub-microsecond timing and a well thought out software interface, the system should be considered by engineers and technicians", commented John Yee, Applications Manager.
The system includes 8 independent timing processors with sub-microsecond capability. Each timer can be set to operate in one of eight modes: (a) Fixed Output, (b) Output=Input (Passive Mode), (c) Delayed Pulse After Trigger, (d) Clocked Pulse Stream, (e) Validated Trigger Input (Noise Suppression), (f) Dynamically Delayed Pulse, (g) Timer, (h) Toggled Output.
