This project began as a result of updates to the IEC61010 safety standard. The Ion Drive Turbo V™ Source, is an existing product that required the addition of covers to achieve compliance with the updated standard.
For further information:
This is the past version of the Ion Drive Turbo V™ Source, installed on the QTRAP™5500 mass spectrometer. This is how it looked prior to our cover design to address IEC1010 compliance.
This shows the updated IEC1010 compliant Ion Drive Turbo V™ Source, installed on the QTRAP™5500 Mass Spectrometer.
It was also required that a single version of the source work across product platforms. To achieve this, a trade off decision to redesign the front dress panel for the Time-of-Flight platform was made. The updated source can be seen here with a lowered “skirt” below the source and multiple changes throughout, to achieve aesthetic consistency with the QTRAP™5500
Here are a few great detail shots of features we really love.
The design style of this Source was developed to work with the following platforms:
QTRAP™ | TRIPLE QUAD™ | TripleTOF®
1) Viewing Windows, Ergonomic features, Handles, and grips for source removal,
2) Stability feet for passing tilt tests.
3) Tower cover, ventilation grills.
4) Ventilation grills for achieving thermal requirements.
