The second machine of the new generation high throughput and fully automated accelerator mass spectrometer (K.H. Purser, US Patent 4 037 100 (1977) [1]) has been installed at the Centre for Isotope Research in Groningen, The Netherlands. The model 4130 AMS is built by High Voltage Engineering Europa (HVEE) and will be dedicated to C-14 analysis. The machine is designed to analyse 3000 samples per year with high precision. In order to optimize the precision of the machine, HVEE has laid special emphasis on critical components of the system and made several improvements, some of which are discussed.
