Electronic gating and external trigger
Exposure times can be varied from a few nanoseconds to several hours and are controlled either internally or by applying an external gate signal. The external trigger input with a programmable delay function makes synchronization between the detector and other hardware extremely easy.
For an example showing picosecond time-resolved laser pump/X-ray probe experiments see [T. Ejdrup et al., J. Synchrotron Radiat. 16, 387 (2009)].
