Introduced 25 years ago, Metrolab’s NMR Magnetic Field Cameras have revolutionized field mapping for MRI magnets. They reduced acquisition times from hours to minutes, positioning errors to fractions of a millimeter, and they rendered human and drift errors negligible. Now, meet the latest generation NMR Magnetic Field Camera, the MFC2046!
Metrolab’s NMR Magnetic Field Cameras have always provided an unbeatable combination for high-precision magnetic field mapping:
The MFC2046 can map magnets with bores as small as 40 mm. For comparison, the smallest previous generation Probe Array was for a 220 mm bore. NMR spectroscopy magnets are elegantly handled by the new mini Probe Array MFC9146, whereas the standard-size Probe Array MFC9046 supports whole-body MRI, extremity MRI, or small-animal MRI, up to a 500 mm DSV.
The MFC2046 maps magnetic fields from 0.03 T to over 25 T (1 GHz). For comparison, previous generation systems were limited to 7 T.
Previous generation systems were limited to 32 NMR probes per probe array. The MFC2046 shatters that limitation, supporting arrays with up to 255 measurement points.
The MFC2046 can accept either NMR Probe Arrays, or single-point NMR probes. This unprecedented flexibility means that your manufacturing and service personnel now only need one instrument for field-mapping or single point measurements. The latter provide update rates of up to 33 Hz, allowing low frequency magnetic noise to be detected in real time.
The MFC9046 Probe Arrays can optionally include one wide-range probe, equivalent to a PT2026 NMR probe. This renders your workflow even more efficient: the Probe Array is now left in the magnet during field ramping, avoiding switching measurement fixtures!
The MFC2046 connects to your computer via USB or Ethernet, using industry-standard protocols and a well-documented command set.
With the MFC2046, Metrolab introduces a completely rewritten User Interface, MFCTool Version 10. A specialized display for each task in the typical production workflow makes the software easy to learn and quick to use. In addition to the “classic” Metrolab file format, Version 10 introduces a powerful new XML-based format, as well as a plugin module to recover the measurement results in real time. Soon, the same software will support the previous generation Magnetic Field Camera MFC3045.
The MFC2046 Main Unit consists of a PT2026 NMR Precision Teslameter with the Camera firmware option, an FCA7046 Field Camera Amplifier, a 3026-10M Cable, and the MFCTool software. In addition, you will need a Probe Array (see below), or you can also plug in any PT2026 probe or multiplexer.
Of course, all this new functionality comes at a premium. Except that in this case, that premium is almost zero!
