Notes on the Edwards nEXT-240D Turbomolecular Vacuum Pumps
The Edwards nEXT-240D hybrid bearing compound turbomolecular vacuum pump, operates on 24 to 48 VDC, this is the 160 watt version and comes with a TAG Controller with power supply. It has ISO100 inlet flange, ISO KF-25 exhaust foreline flange and has a pump to controller signal cable attached (1 meter). This pump has a reduced start up time to full speed, with a pumping speed of 240 liters per second (l/s) of nitrogen. A basic pump system would require a Edwards nEXT240D pump, a TAG or TIC controller, either an air or water cooling accessory and a suitable backing roughing pump. Roughing pump not included with this package. The complete specifications and application brochure in PDF format can be downloaded below.
The Edwards nEXT240D hybrid bearing compound turbo pumps are available with either ISO-100 or Conflat 6 inch inlet flanges and have a pumping speed of 240 l/s of nitrogen. The nEXT pumps combine Edward's proven bearing technology (oil lubricated ceramic lower bearing with dry permanent magnetic upper bearing), an improved rotor design with a new molecular drag stage to deliver improved pumping speed and compression ratios, and true user serviceability. They feature 24 to 48 VDC sensor less motors with a built in drive that is fully compatible with the range of TAG, 100W TIC or 200W TIC controllers. The pumps are available pre-set for either 80W or 160W maximum power, the 80W pumps can be used with the Edwards TAG controllers for low power applications but will require a longer ramp time to full operating speed.
User Friendly Maintenance Technology
The new Edwards nEXT technology have enabled the pumps to be serviced in the field. An interim oil lubrication change can be performed, where access allows, in-situ, typically in less than 5 minutes with the minimum of specialist tooling. A bearing and oil lubrication service, with minimum disassembly can be performed in less than 10 minutes using basic workshop tools and an Edwards tool kit. The nEXT pumps will advise the user when a service is due and what level of intervention is required. The request for service is by a simple flashing LED sequence on the pumps, and by serial communication notification.
The Edwards Turbo and Active Gauge (TAG) controller is a small low cost pumping system controller,
suitable for a wide range of vacuum applications and compatible with all Edwards EXT and nEXT
turbo pumps. The large LED display shows the pump speed or vacuum pressure and an easy to use
push button interface enables ease of operation and control.
TAG controllers will also run a backing pump, air vent valve an air
cooler and an Edwards active gauge, making the TAG a versatile
This compact 24 VDC TAG controller is ideal for use on bench-tops or
suitable for mobile platforms where space is limited yet functionality
and reliability are essential. These Edwards TAG turbo pump controllers are designed to operate EXT 75dx, nEXT 240, 300 and 400 turbo pumps, have an external 24 VDC power supply included and have Edwards part number D39592000.
