As an enhanced replacement for the ALV-5000/60X0 Multiple Tau Digital Real Time Correlator Series, ALV introduces the ALV-MultiCorr Digital Real Time Correlator Series per July 2007 with taking orders on the first models of this series by this date with delivery by early Q4/2007.
The ALV-MultiCorr Series offers a completely new platform of digital correlators, not simply designed to act as “one to one” replacement of the ALV-5000/60X0 correlators, but to offer most flexible and powerful solutions for the increasing experimental demands in the various fields of use in photon correlation experiments, such as DLS, DWS and FCS in particular.
Besides using the powerful and well known (which was introduced by ALV in commercial hardware more than two decades ago) Multiple Tau Correlation scheme, offering 100% real-time operation along with individual channel and group monitors to allow correct correlation function normalisation and being 100% software compatible to the well established ALV-5000/60X0 correlator series, the major design features of the ALV-MultiCorr Digital Real Time Correlator Series are :
As of today, the ALV-7002, the ALV-7002/USB, the ALV-7004 and ALV-7004/FAST (3,125 ns instead of 25 ns initial sampling time, four times 336 instead of four times 312 correlator channels) are available items with (usually) from stock delivery.
The ALV-7004 and ALV-7004/FAST are optimally suited as massively enhanced replacements of the ALV-5000/EPP and ALV-6000, respectively the ALV-60X0-160/200, featuring maximum performance at exceptionally small footprint and power consumption.
