Equipment Photos From Our Customers


These pictures show some of the systems our Customers have assembled using amplifiers and parts from Spectrotek. Updated 0000 UTC 20 March 2017.

Many different asembly methods are shown in these photos. Some of the circuit boards have been hand-made using the information in our instruction manuals. As you will see, there are as many different assembly methods as there are researchers! Our amplifiers are not particularly sensitive to different assembly configurations.

A combination system.

The combination of an SSQ-2F + PA1 amplifier makes the system capable of handling a larger tube when needed. The system can operate with both plasma tube and contact electrodes at the same time.

8 images

A completely home made system.

This system was built entirely from information in the instruction manuals. The LC31 coupler was hand-made as well. The circuit boards were made by the researcher, and the standard SSQ-2F and PA1 design was modified to suit the needs of the researcher.
