SC5 add-on for BP5/BP5e

With growing set-up complexity, or when multiple stages need to be controlled, 8 input and output channels might simply not be enough. One additional SC5 instantaneously doubles that number to 16. For even more complex experiments, a maximum of 3 SC5s can be connected to the Nanonis SPM Control System base package, transforming the instrument into a 24 outputs and 24 inputs system.

While increasing the number of channels with conventional systems means adapting the measurement software and potentially changing the workflow, the modularity of the Nanonis SPM Control System avoids all these drawbacks. The additional SC5 signals are seamlessly integrated into the Nanonis software allowing immediate productivity.

Additional SC5s can be combined with additional SO5s (16-output channels) if more outputs than inputs are required. 

KEY FEATURES

  • 8 additional high precision and low noise 20-bit analog outputs (22-bit with hrDAC)
  • 8 additional low-noise 18-bit analog inputs
  • Up to a total of 24 I/O channels with two SC5 add-ons
  • Seamless integration of additional channels in the software
