Typical Set-up Vacuum Chamber Photoelectrons vs Incident X-rays Flange e.g. CF203 Photoelectrons per detected X-ray iKon-M/L-SO CCD Power Supply (iKon-L only) Power Supply Power Supply Cable Best Practice Guidelines Condensation • It is strongly advised that the camera should not be used in a condensing atmosphere. • If used in a condensing atmosphere the sensor MUST be protected and the use of a cold finger is strongly recommended. Contamination & Damage • When not in use, the sensor chamber should be covered and sealed. • Due to the exposed nature of the sensor, extreme care should be...
