General Information


Scout™ is a compact, expandable, cluster-based spectrometer. measuring 13” x 7” x 13” with an integrated power supply. The master cluster contains one broadband transmitter and one digital receiver that can be connected to a Windows 10 Professional 64-bit computer, via an USB 2.0 interface. The chassis offers space for an optional slave cluster allowing 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.


Advanced Capabilities


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 Included


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 runs on Windows 10 Professional and is pre-configured for your application including an application-specific pulse sequence and a NMRscript® library to get you started fast.
