Upgrade from BP3 to BP5

Upgrading from a BP3 to a BP5 brings a massive performance increase and a vastly improved user interface. All relevant parameters have been improved by at least one order of magnitude. Moreover, the update ensures repairability and availability of spare parts.

Nanonis SPM Control System Base Package 5
Base Package of the Nanonis SPM Control System: RC5 real-time controller and SC5 signal conversion interface

Nanonis V3 SPM control systems were discontinued mid 2007 and reached their end of life in 2015. While many of these systems are still in operation, development at Nanonis hasn't stood still and the current generation of controllers is miles ahead both in performance and usability. Spare parts for V3 SPM control systems are no longer available, meaning that the V3 hardware cannot be replaced or repaired anymore.

The upgrade offers a straightforward path to current state of the art electronics and software, without requiring users to learn how to operate a completely different system.

Compatible instruments: 

  • RTPC (19" rack-mount)
  • First generation PXI-based real-time controller

Not compatible for this upgrade:

  • RC4

The upgrade includes:

  • Replacement (trade-in) of PXI controller and SCCB, RTPC and SCCB with a discounted BP5

The OCB oscillation controller also needs to be replaced (AFM systems only). High-voltage amplifiers and adaptation kits can be reused.

EOL information for V3 systems:

The following discontinued V3 instrument models have reached their end-of-life and no repair service or support will be provided anymore:

  • RTPC (19" rack-mount)
  • First generation PXI-based real-time controller

In case of hardware failure the instruments need to be replaced by an instrument of the currently available product line.

The following discontinued V3 instrument models have reached their end-of-life and repairs cannot be guaranteed anymore:

  • All 19" rack-mounted instruments except RTPC

In case of hardware failure the instruments might need to be replaced by an instrument of the currently available product line.

KEY FEATURES

  • Replacement of the V3 base package with a current generation V5 base package
  • Massive performance increase
  • Significant amount of new features and measurement modes
  • Largely upgraded user interface
  • Repairability and spare parts guaranteed for the lifetime of the new system
