One electronics to rule them all: tec5USA’s exclusive Electronic Sensor Multiplexers (“E-MUX”) have been designed to operate up to 8 identical PDA detectors or PDA spectrometers with preamplifier electronics, with only one operating Front-End Electronics, in “Simultaneous” and “Sequential” modes.
This unique architecture enables multi-channel / multi-input spectroscopy measurements in a cost-efficient manner, and is particularly useful for high-precision process analysis in which a reference channel has to be observed simultaneously (e.g., reflectometry), or for high throughput instrumentation where several samples must be measured at the same time (e.g., UV-VIS tablet dissolution testing apparatus).
The multiplexer operating mode is selected by software and transferred to the E-MUX via the Front End Electronics.
In sequential mode, the multiplexer acts as a static input switch for up to 8 sensors. The size of a spectral data array is equal to the number of pixels of the active sensor.
In simultaneous mode, a predefined combination of two to eight sensors can be read out almost concurrently. The multiplexer interleaves the spectral data of the single sensors, pixel by pixel, returning a spectral data array which size is the sum of all the pixels of the active sensors.
