How to power on the Agilent ICP-MS Foreline Pump when fully powering on the Agilent ICP-MS System, or after performing maintenance.
The ICP-MS MassHunter software controls the pump’s ON/OFF control, which will transition the ICP-MS System from shutdown mode to standby mode.
Steps to Follow
Tip: If "Vacuum On" is unavailable, and there is a red X on the Hardware icon instead of a green checkmark, set communication with the ICP-MS and PC first.
Warning: When the plasma is lit, do not open the top covers. Confirm that the ICP-MS is in shutdown mode before continuing.
5. Wait for the instrument to reach standby mode. The Foreline Pump is now powered on.
