T-Ray® 5000 Series

Dual Channel Control Unit


Replacement Product: T-Ray® 5600 Terahertz Control Unit

The T-Ray® 5000 Dual Channel Control Unit (TCU54nm) is the same size, shape and weight as the single channel unit (TCU52nm) but with the added benefit of being able to control two terahertz sensors for multi-sensor applications.

Product Description

Based on the same proven technology as the single channel unit, the TCU54nm is characterized by high precision, short measurement time, and a robust construction. The TCU54nm monitors and controls all aspects of THz generation and detection, delivering precisely controlled optical signals to the terahertz transmitters and receivers, or the T-Gauge® Sensor Heads.. Measured data is processed within the Control Unit at a rate of up to 1 kHz, making the T-Ray® 5000 one of the fastest terahertz systems available. The processed waveforms enable multiple measurements to be made simultaneously with a single sensor head.

The T-Ray® 5000 Control Unit and accessories are linked with robust connection points and interfaces appropriate for industrial environments. Adequate connections are provided to allow seamless integration with most QC systems or experimental applications. The industry-standard interface connections provide straightforward integration with the T-Gauge® Sensor.
