old KappaCCD: detector electronics issue

Post by GustavoP » 11 Mar 2020, 20:12

Hi everyone.

We have a 20 years old Bruker KappaCCD with some fault in the detection system.

We suspect the problem lies within an INTEGRATED CIRCUIT (a DS1244Y) inside one of the modules (the PPS1):
that IC works with a BUILT-IN BATTERY which has a FINITE LIFETIME (10 years), so if it is still alive it is most probably reaching its end.

DOES ANYBODY KNOW WHETHER THE DATA STORED IN THAT IC CAN BE OBTAINED SOMEHOW?

Unfortunately, the manufacturer couldn't help us with this issue.

Thanks for reading!

Gustavo
