Scout™ is a compact, expandable, cluster-based spectrometer. The single master cluster measures 6.5” x 7” x 10” with an external power supply. The master cluster contains one broadband transmitter and one digital receiver that can be connected to a Windows 7 Professional 64-bit computer, via an USB 2.0 interface. The optional slave cluster allows expansion with a second identical DC to 300 MHz transmitter or gradient control for imaging or diffusion experiments.
Advanced System Architecture
The Scout utilizes advanced technology from the Redstone system but in a more compact configuration. This makes the Scout an ideal system for more sophisticated mobile applications.
The Scout offers state-of-the-art digital RF performance: fast simultaneous phase, amplitude and frequency control; 3rd generation digital receiver for large bandwidths; together with the EM-III advanced technology pulse programmer. Some features include:
- Minimum pulse width of 100 ns with 10 ns resolution
- Phase switching < 20 ns
- Amplitude switching < 20 ns
- Phase-continuous frequency switching < 20 ns
- 64 Million point waveform memory for each transmitter and gradient channel
- 12.5 MHz (80 ns per complex point) digital receiver bandwidth
- Fast <1 µs receiver recovery time
TNMR Software Site License for Windows 7 Professional
The Scout includes a software site license for TNMR™ software allowing you to use the same powerful software for instrument control and for off-line processing of spectroscopy and imaging data. TNMR is pre-configured for your application and includes an application specific pulse sequence and a NMRscript® library to get you started fast.
