Signal Electronics System – Synchronisation of Measurement Applications and Measurement Data Logging for Optical Spectrometry

LSA GmbH, as a true pioneer, is successfully putting the advantages of innovative laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy into execution in industrial production processes. The goal is to carry out a 100% testing and to identify and analyse raw and process materials throughout every type of manufacturing process.

For the precise and flexible synchronisation of process sequences and data logging in fully automatic measurement applications, LSA GmbH utilises a signal electronics system developed in-house, which makes the read-out of spectrometer signals and the processing of the data in real time possible. CCD lines as well as photomultipliers are used as signal sources.

The signal electronics system combines the functions of A/D converters, delay generators, counters and logic switches in a compact device.

Signal Electronics System – Data Logging, Delay Generators, Counters and Logic Switches in one Device

Leadership in innovation where equipment and machines are concerned is primarily decided on the basis of four criteria, in which unique features lead to positive results: 1.) Performance and Efficiency of the equipment, 2.) Reliability of the equipment, 3.) Costs of the equipment, and 4.) Compactness of the equipment. Our signal electronics system gives you a head start in all four criteria.

Effective and Efficient

In typical measurement applications, our signal electronics system connects components such as lasers, spectrometers, linear axes, shaft encoders, integrators, shutters etc. and enables sequences of predefined actions that are precise to the nanosecond and process-controlled. The signal electronics system offers single components which are optimally aligned and tuned with one another, as well as offering the advantages of a simplified configuration.


The assembling of several components into a signal electronics system makes a secure statement about high quality in the joint use of the different individual components. This is now the third product generation of the device, and it is used in numerous facilities, both laboratory supported and industrial.


The signal electronics system makes savings of up to 40% of costs possible compared with stand-alone devices.


A compact and very practical device is made possible by the high density of integration of read-out electronics, delay generators, counters and logic switches.
