The AVI-400 platforms provide industry-leading active vibration isolation performance (starting at 0.5 Hz) for electron microscopes and similarly large research instruments. The AVI-400 platforms help users achieve more from their microscopes by removing disruptive low frequency vibration noise from affecting their measurements. The AVI-400 platforms incorporate a low-profile and modular design, simplifying the installation process by not requiring lifting equipment for installation for a majority of instruments (including most SEMs).
The AVI-400 platforms support a wide range of high-load microscopes and other research instruments sensitive to low-frequency vibration noise. The most common application for the AVI-400 platforms is electron microscopy, where they have supported both scanning electron microscopes and transmission electron microscopes with great success. End users and OEMs around the world find the low-profile nature of the AVI-400 platforms favorable versus competing solutions as it simplifies the installation process and removes the need for persistent maintenance.
In addition to SEMs and TEMs, the AVI-400 platforms often support:
- Ultra-High Vacuum Scanning Probe Microscopes (UHV-SPM)
- Lithography tools
- High precision metrology tools
- And More!
Performance Upgrade – LFS System
The AVI-400 Series can improve its low-frequency vibration isolation performance by pairing it with the LFS System (Low Frequency Sensor). This upgrade enables the platform to isolate vibrations starting at 0.5 Hz and can be easily retrofitted for existing systems in the field. More details on the upgraded performance can be found below.
