The AIMS-Engine is a precisely constructed OEM product. The advanced ion mobility spectrometer is assembled by nonradioactive plasma ionization source which significantly improves the sensitivity of ion mobility spectrometry technique. The resolving power of up to 90 FWHM (full width half maximum), makes it an instrument with the highest resolution in the field. The Advanced Ion Mobility Spectrometer is, thanks to its sophisticated sample inlet and laser diode module, the only instrument in the field suitable also for analysis of solids and surfaces. The AIMS is designed for easy interface to GC or MCCGC. All operation parameters of AIMS-engine are fully adjustable by the user, making this instrument suitable for research in laboratories as well as for direct application in the industry. The robust and compact design, fast response and high sensitivity make our instrument excellent for work in hard conditions. We also offer tuning of AIMS-Engine for desired applications.
The AIMS control unit allows easy management of all operation parameters of Advanced Ion Mobility Spectrometer - Engine. Two integrated thermostats enable the control of the temperature of AIMS drift tube and sample inlet in range from 30 to 120 0C. The high voltage modules integrated in the control unit enable to pre-set AIMS drift field intensity in the range from 160 to 620 V/cm in both polarities. The floating HV switch enables the control of Bradbury-Nielsen type of shutter grid in range from 5μs to 500μs with duty cycle 10 - 500ms.
The main advance of AIMS - Control unit is an integrated 16bit data acquisition card suitable for dense spectral data record. The dense data sampling in combination with fast preamplifier allows AIMS to reach the highest resolving and separation factor.
The Double AIMS Control Unit was developed for control of two AIMS engines. This unique control unit allow manage two AIMS instruments at the same time and also measurement in positive and negative polarity without the need of switching between polarities.
For comfortable work with our advanced ion mobility spectrometer we developed a control software that offers full and intuitive control of our instrument. The AIMS control software is a part of each spectrometer. In addition we offer also the customization of our software for integration or synchronization with other instruments. The source code of our software is fully open and can be also modified by user.
