Sensor inputs can be assigned to different materials with individual parameters as well. High speed and high accuracy measuring process controlled by the DSP processor improves the film quality and repeatability. It brings also features of accuracy, stability and instrument configuration. Autosave function for saving your parameters/unit preset and applying them automatically after restart.

Available software dedicated to precise rate measurements. Registers changes in the frequency of the quartz resonator in time (in the form of a graph). Allows the user to calculate the evaporation rate from the selected time interval. Suitable for e.g. MBE applications.
