Sample mounting accessories
A variety of sample cards are available for the standard insert to facilitate sample mounting and storage as well as expedite sample exchange. Standard plug-in sample cards allow mounting of up to a 10 mm sample. An optional card can accommodate up to a 50 mm sample. The 10 mm sample cards are available in prober pin or solder pad style while the 50 mm sample card is available in prober pin style only. The prober pin style sample cards allow you to mount your samples without requiring contact pad soldering.
Even subtle changes in room temperature can sometimes influence your measurement results. As such, our sample cards are available with an integrated platinum RTD to ensure you get the most information out of your measurement. When used in combination with the temperature monitor or control options, you can log and record small fluctuations in sample temperature, helping you gain the most knowledge of the materials you are studying.
