Agilent Technologies have introduced two new models of turbomolecular pumps to their TwisTorr turbo pump range, both with a more compact design and smart capabilities. The TwisTorr 305 FS and TwisTorr 305 IC pumps both come with smart connectivity, a new feature for Agilent turbomolecular pumps. An app called Vacuum Link, which can be installed on Apple or Android phones, enables users to communicate remotely with the pump, so they can type commands and modify parameters to control the pump. The TwisTorr 305 FS pump is a standalone unit, featuring an external remote controller. The TwisTorr 305 IC pump features an integrated controller, and a small footprint making it of interest to original equipment manufacturers and other companies that want to integrate the pump in an instrument. An advanced function enables users to extract log files so they can share pump operating data easily, saving time. It also enables quick communication with Agilent service and support teams, speeding up the company’s response time.
