Enclosure protects scanning electron microscopes
Test & Measurement World Staff - August 6, 2012
TMC’s SEM-Closure is a sealed and temperature-controlled chamber that protects sensitive SEMs (scanning electron microscopes) from magnetic-field disturbances, vibration, and acoustic noise. The enclosure teams with the company’s Stacis iX SEM-Base, an active piezoelectric vibration-cancellation floor platform, and Mag-NetX, which provides magnetic-field cancellation.
System integration of vibration-isolation, magnetic-field cancellation, and acoustic-isolation components ensures proper fit and compatibility. The SEM-Closure frame accommodates Mag-NetX Helmholtz coils, as well as the acoustic panels, eliminating the need for a second frame to house the coils.
SEM-Closure provides multiple access points, a heat-dissipation system, and provisions for tool plumbing and cabling within the system. The modular architecture of the standard enclosure allows ample space for Mag-NetX, the SEM-Base floor platform, and most commercial SEMs in various configurations. Custom enclosure designs are also available.
