GEN3 PCB cleanliness test system. 2
Chester, CT — Ascentech LLC, the North American distributor for GEN3 Systems Ltd., is introducing Gen3's new CM-Series Large-Format Ionic Cleanliness Test System, calling it the first of its kind.

The CM-Series Ionic Cleanliness testers are well-established with more than 2,000 systems installed worldwide. GEN3 has recently up-dated its line of ionic test systems with the addition of a large test chamber measuring 24 x 24 x 3.6-in. (609 x 609 x 91mm) to the CM33 model. All of the CM-Series testers include: fast (3 minute) test time; full test cycle including regeneration time = < 6 minutes; unique solid gold measuring cell, ballistic amplifier providing a test accuracy of <0.005µS/cm; unique curve-fitting analysis algorithm (Merit of Fit).

The testers utilize a solid gold test-cell, ballistic amplifiers, and high volume pumping systems to ensure superior measurement precision even at very low conductivity values. The high volume pumping system produces complete test solution change more than 6 times per minute, resulting in faster test times, more sensitive measurement, and superior surface contamination detection. PC-based software is used to produce graphical test data, a pass/fail analysis, and automatic hard copy printout using test methods according to the MIL and DEF standards. CM-Series testers measure in accordance with all international and MIL specifications IPC-J-STD 001 & IPC-TM-650, MIL-P-28809 (obsolete but still referenced), and DEF Standard 00-100/3.
