STACIS® iX SEM-Base®
Active Vibration Cancellation Floor Platform for SEMs




Overview
SEM-Base is an active vibration cancellation floor platform designed for use specifically with Scanning Electron Microscopes. Designed to support all commercial SEM or similar SEM-type instruments on any lab floor, SEM-Base is the ideal solution to bring your lab to within the microscope's vibration criteria. With TMC's STACIS technology built in, SEM-Base is compatible with all internal SEM vibration control systems and aggressively mitigates low frequency floor vibration starting at 0.6 Hz, with 50-80% attenuation at 1-1.9 Hz, and 90% attenuation starting at 2 Hz. SEM-Base features advanced inertial vibration sensors and state-of-the-art piezoelectric actuators in a hard-mount platform – often the only suitable solution to support a SEM on a high vibration, or potentially high vibration floor.

NOTE: See SEM-Closure™, a total environmental solution designed specifically to protect SEMs. It can accommodate SEM-Base and Mag-NetX™ in a sealed and temperature-controlled acoustical chamber – protecting the SEM from vibration, magnetic field disturbances, and acoustic noise.

 





The SEM-Base® Advantage
SEM-Base is compatible with all internal SEM vibration control systems and aggressively mitigates low frequency floor vibration starting at 0.6 Hz.

SEM-Base is a compact, cost-effective alternative to our 65 Series STACIS® Floor Platform. It incorporates STACIS technology but has a much smaller footprint and installs easily with minimal or no tuning.

SEM-Base features extended stroke piezoelectric actuators and damped, powder-coated steel plates that sandwich four isolators and TMC's DC 2000 digital controller.

Accessories
SEM-Base™ accessories that will ensure a smooth installation.
SEM-Ramp
SEM-Lift
SEM-Lift™
SEM-Ramp allows a SEM pre-fitted with casters to be rolled up on top of SEM-Base without a fork lift or other rigging equipment. It includes two heavy duty steel ramps which are bolted to the front of SEM-Base.
SEN-Lift™
SEM-Lift simplifies and speeds SEM-Base installation on a previously installed SEM Column by raising the column several inches allowing SEM-Base to be rolled into place.

                        SEM-Lift™

SEM-Lift

SEM-Lift is a safe and sturdy lifting device for scanning& electron microscope (SEM) columns. It simplifies and speeds SEM-Base installation on a previously installed SEM Column. SEM-Lift raises the column several inches allowing SEM-Base to be rolled into place.

   Convertible Roll-Off Crate

A Convertible Roll-Off Crate is included standard with all SEM-Base orders. The crate cover converts to a sturdy ramp and the cover slats form a guide for the wheels, allowing SEM-Base to be easily removed from the crate. The SEM-Base casters shown are optional.




To Order
Contact TMC. An Application Engineer will configure a system for your unique requirements and provide a quotation.
