centrION Continuous Flow Interface system performs two main tasks in the operation of the precisION instrument. Firstly, it is a fully automated inlet switching device which provides instant, software controlled switching between all connected inlet systems and secondly, it performs the injection of monitoring gases in to the ion source of precisION. These two tasks are essential to provide the level of flexibility and functionality that are the cornerstone of precisION.
centrION has capacity for up to 5 continuous flow peripheral inlet systems to be connected to the precisION hardware at any time. Switching between inlet systems is done automatically, without the operator having to configure any hardware.
