The New Standard for Lock-in Amplifiers - MFLI

Zurich Instruments unveils two lock-in amplifiers at the same time

Zurich Instruments, the technology leader for lock-in amplifiers, again demonstrates the fastest innovation rate in the industry and releases the specifications for two new products simultaneously. The MFLI Lock-in Amplifier is available in two variants, with a choice of two frequency ranges:

Covering the medium and low frequency part of the spectrum for dynamic signal measurements, the products are equipped with an unprecedented array of features. Users will benefit from the superior performance paired with the outstanding LabOne toolset that existing Zurich Instruments customers know from our higher frequency instruments. With specifications and performance that outshine the competition, setting researchers free from outdated methodologies, Zurich Instruments is setting the new standard for lock-in amplifiers.

Andrew Turner, Technical Sales Manager, commented: “Our customers have been asking for an instrument which is targeted at a lower frequency range than our HF2LI and UHFLI products, but don’t want to compromise on performance or features. The MFLI has been developed specifically for them.” Jan Benhelm, Product Manager at Zurich Instruments, adds: “With this product introduction Zurich Instruments expands its lock-in amplifier portfolio. We are now able to offer one instrument for every decade between 500 kHz and 600 MHz to our customers".

This is the first time in the history of lock-in amplifiers that four instruments with different frequency ranges can be operated with the same software. The lock-in amplifiers from Zurich grow with the needs of the customers as they can add options to the instruments without sending them to the manufacturer, or purchase higher frequency instruments and keeping working with the same user interface. Perhaps more significantly, the time invested in programming custom configurations can be reused as the LabOne programming interface is the same for all instruments.

The MFLI Lock-in Amplifier is also ideally suited for the integration business thanks to its aspect ratio. Only one third the size of competitive instruments, opening up new footprint and packaging possibilities, it is poised to reshape the industry.

The instruments are now available for customer demonstrations and trials, and will be showcased over the coming months at major international conferences and trade shows, starting with the Photonics West in San Francisco between February 10 to 12, 2015.

Zurich Instruments makes lock-in amplifiers, phase-locked loops and impedance spectroscopes that have revolutionized instrumentation in the high-frequency (HF) and ultra-high frequency (UHF) ranges by combining frequency-domain tools and time-domain tools within each product. This reduces the complexity of laboratory setups, removes sources of problems and provides new measurement approaches that support the progress of research.
