The diffractometer is located 21 m from the source. The main component of the device is an AEROTECH high precision air-bearing rotation axis (ABR).
PRIGo goniometer (since January 2012)
The Parallel Robotics Inspired Goniometer (PRIGo) is a novel and compact goniometer which provides an alternative for kappa goniometers used at synchrotron macromolecular crystallography beamlines. Based upon a combination of serial and parallel kinematics, PRIGo consists of the usual Omega rotation performed by an Aerotech, followed by four linear stages working synchronously to allow the three translations (X,Y,Z), the Chi rotation (0-90º), and finally the Phi rotation (0-360º) around the sample holder axis. Spheres of confusion are of <5 microns, <7 microns and <10 microns for Omega, Chi and Phi respectively, thanks to the use of SmarAct linear positioners replacing conventional linear spindle stages.

Automatic Sample Changer
The IRELEC sample changer is based on the CATS sysmtem developed in FIP beamline at ESRF. The sample changer features a six-axis Staubli robot and a dewar sample capacity of 60 samples at X06DA. The robot is versatile with the ability to change tools for routine sample mounting, crystallization plates screening, beam alignment, and more.
