System 2 electrodeless discharge lamps (EDLs) provide the optimized spectral output needed to get the maximum performance from PerkinElmer atomic absorption spectrometers.
- Used for the detection of elemental Cadmium (Cd)
- PinAAcle™ instruments require the purchase of an EDL driver assembly for each of the lamp positions to be used
Electrodeless Discharge Lamps for greater brightness (EDLs) are typically much brighter and, in some cases, provide better sensitivity than comparable HCLs. EDLs are preferred for certain volatile elements. They offer better precision and lower detection limits for analyses that are 'noisy' due to weak hollow cathode emission. They are designed to be physically interchangeable with intensitron hollow cathode lamps. Their power supplies are built into all the PinAAcle™ series of atomic absorption spectrometers. Use of EDLs with those instruments requires only the purchase of an EDL driver assembly for each of the lamp positions to be used.
