The master cluster contains one broadband transmitter and one digital receiver that can be connected to a Windows 10 Professional 64-bit computer, via a 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 bench-top configuration. This makes the Scout an ideal console for more sophisticated portable applications or for bench-top NMR and bench-top NQR work.
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
