Measurement Controllers

Thickness Monitors Controller TMC-13


TMC13 is the newest technology electronics designed for monitoring and controlling any coating and deposition processes. Up to six channel inputs and two additional vacuum gauge channels together with 7" TFT display makes this unit really unique and universal. Sensor inputs can be assigned to different materials with individual parameters as well. High speed and high accuracy measuring process controlled by DSP processor improves the film quality and repeatability. It brings also the features of accuracy, stability and instrument configuration.
