Pumps Feature Rotary Design
Edwards has introduced the STP-iXR1606 series of magnetically-levitated turbo-molecular pumps (TMP) with a fully-integrated onboard controller. The TMP incorporates a new rotary design that improves throughput at high gas flow rates and increases maximum gas flow. It features a fully-integrated controller that eliminates the connection cable and rack conventionally required with a non-integrated controller.
In addition, the onboard controller incorporates a small power supply is designed to reduce energy consumption at high gas flows. The STP-iXR1606 series delivers high reliability in dirty environments with equivalent IP54 protection against dust and humidity. It has I/O remote, RS232C, RS485 and STP-link standard communication ports, with Profibus and DeviceNet available as options.
