CAUTION For forepump operation and maintenance, refer to the operating instructions
provided with the pump. In particular, note the following:
• Prevent the forepump from over-heating by ensuring that there is sufficient air
clearance around the pump.
• Maintain the exhaust pressure from atmospheric pressure minus 15 mbar to 1.15 bar
absolute (0.15 bar relative).
• Follow the instructions for adding and changing the oil.
To connect the vacuum system, follow these procedures:
• Connecting the Mass Spectrometer to the Forepump
• Connecting the Forepump to the Lab Exhaust System
• Connecting Line Power to the Forepump

Setting Up the Mass Spectrometer
Connecting the Vacuum System
Connecting the Forepump to the Lab Exhaust System
To operate the forepump properly requires an efficient fume exhaust system. Most
atmospheric pressure ionization (API) applications contribute to solvents accumulating in the
forepump. While Thermo Fisher Scientific recommends that you periodically open the gas
ballast valve (on the top of the pump) to purge the accumulated solvents, opening the valve
might allow a large volume of volatile solvent waste to enter the fume exhaust system. Because
the optional oil mist filter connects to the ballast port, be aware that opening the valve also
drains the oil mist filter. Choose an exhaust system that can accommodate the periodic
purging of these solvents. The frequency of the purging depends on the throughput of the
system—never operate a pump continuously with the gas ballast valve open.
CAUTION Because the forepump exhaust is a health hazard, make sure that it vents to an
appropriate external exhaust system.
Table 6 lists the parts required to connect the forepump to the lab exhaust system. These parts
are in the MS Setup Kit (P/N 70111-62033) and the Mechanical Pump Accessory Kit
(P/N 70111-62048).

Ion Max and Ion Max-S Ion Sources
This chapter briefly describes the Ion Max™ and Ion Max-S™ ion source assemblies and the
source drain connection to the LCQ Fleet MS.
Note For information about available ionization modes, and how to install or remove the
API source housing, refer to the Ion Max and Ion Max-S API Source Hardware Manual.
Contents
• API Source Housing
• API Source Housing Drain
API Source Housing
The Ion Max or Ion Max-S API source housing holds the ESI, HESI-II, or APCI probe. The
Ion Max has two features that the Ion Max-S does not have: an adjustable probe port and a
front door with a window. Aside from these two features, these two source housings have the
same functionality and mount to the LCQ Fleet MS in the same way. No tools are needed to
remove or install the API source housing or source drain. For information about installing or
removing the API source housing, refer to the LCQ Fleet Getting Started Guide and the
Ion Max and Ion Max-S API Source Hardware Manual.
Figure 6 shows the API source mounting assembly located on the front of the instrument (left
drawing) and the back view of the API source housing (right drawing). The API source
housing receives power for the heater, high-voltage safety interlock, and readback through the
housing connector.
CAUTION Hot surface. While the mass spectrometer is in operation, the external surface
of the API source housing can become extremely hot. Let the API probe and housing cool
to room temperature (approximately 20 minutes) before you touch them.

Use these guidelines for the API source drain:
• Use the PVC tubing provided with the solvent waste container to connect the solvent
waste container to a fume exhaust system. Do not connect silicone tubing to the API
source drain. If silicone tubing connects to the outlet drain, you might observe
background ions at m/z 536, 610, and 684.
CAUTION Do not vent the PVC drain tube (or any vent tubing connected to the
waste container) to the same fume exhaust system that connects to the forepump.
Vent the waste container to a dedicated fume exhaust system. The exhaust system for
the API source must accommodate a flow rate of up to 30 L/min (64 ft3/h).
• Use the Teflon source drain adapter (see Table 8). Do not connect Tygon tubing directly
to the API source drain. At high temperatures, Tygon releases volatile contaminates.
f
CAUTION When you reconnect the API source drain tubing to the bottom of the API
source housing, make sure that you first connect the Teflon source drain adapter. This
adapter can withstand the high temperatures produced by the H-ESI or APCI source.
• To prevent solvent waste from backing up into the mass spectrometer, make sure that all
tubing is above the level of liquid in the waste container as follows:

External Devices Controlled by a Mass Spectrometry Application
Thermo mass spectrometry applications, such as the Xcalibur data system, control external
devices (for example, autosamplers, pumps, and detectors) from several manufacturers
including Thermo Fisher Scientific, Agilent Technologies, and Waters™ Corporation.
The LCQ Fleet MS can start data acquisition upon receiving a contact closure (start) signal
from an external device, which is typically an autosampler. This external device connects to
the contact closure pins (Start In ±) by using the contact closure cable provided with the LC
device. For instructions, refer to the instrument manual.
CAUTION The external device providing the start signal must have proper earth
grounding. Ground loops can cause problems and create a safety hazard. The
complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) integrated circuits that are mounted
on the internal input/output (I/O) printed circuit board (PCB) fail if they receive more
than 5 V or 5 mA.
To connect and set up the external device, follow these procedures:
1. Connecting the Contact Closure Cable
2. Selecting the Start Instrument

b. In the Start Instrument column, click the blank field to the right of the appropriate
triggering device (typically an autosampler) to move the word Yes to this field.
c. Click OK.
5. In the Run Sequence dialog box, complete the remaining selections.
6. Click OK.
External Devices Not Controlled by a Mass Spectrometry Application
When an external device is not controlled by a Thermo mass spectrometry application, such
as the Xcalibur data system, you must properly connect it to send its contact closure (start)
signal. In addition, the Xcalibur Run Sequence dialog box must indicate the appropriate
instrument as the start instrument.
The LCQ Fleet MS can start data acquisition upon receiving a contact closure (start) signal
from an external device, typically an autosampler. This external device connects to the contact
closure pins (Start In ±) by using a contact closure cable.
To connect and set up the external device, follow these procedures, as applicable:
1. Connecting the Contact Closure Cable
2. Starting a Sequence Run from the Xcalibur Data System on page 22
Connecting the Contact Closure Cable
Before proceeding, verify that the external device is suitable for use with the instrument.
Note To start data acquisition, the output (start) signal from the external device must be
Normally Hi (5 V) and momentarily go to Low (less than 2.5 V). If you cannot configure
the external device to go from Normally Hi to Low momentarily, you cannot use it with
the instrument.
If the Xcalibur data system does not control your external device, use the supplied contact
closure mating connector to assemble a two-wire contact closure cable. This cable connects
the Start In pins on the instrument (Figure 8 on page 19) to your device. However, you are
responsible for providing the cable for the Ready Out and Start Out pin connections, which
are described in Table 10.
The Analog Input terminal (Figure 8) converts the signal from an analog external input device
to a digital signal for the LCQ Fleet MS. Analog devices are typically those that are not
controlled by a mass spectrometry application.

External Peripheral Devices
External Devices Not Controlled by a Mass Spectrometry Application
The 1 V Max and 10 V Max inputs are 12-bit analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) that
acquire a 1 V or 10 V input signal from the connected external device. The output signals
from the ADCs are low resolution and suitable for qualitative data acquisition. The 1 V Max
input accepts a 0–1 V signal and the 10 V max input accepts a 0–10 V signal. For a high
resolution ADC output signal suitable for quantitative data acquisition, use an external high
resolution analog converter.

2. Connect the other end of the cable to the external device according to its manual.
Starting a Sequence Run from the Xcalibur Data System
You can now turn on the data system computer, Ethernet switch, forepump, mass
spectrometer, and LC system. When the Xcalibur data system, for example, does not control
the autosampler, it selects the mass spectrometer as the start instrument for a sequence run.
Therefore, you must change the start instrument as part of the sequence run setting.
 To start the sequence run
1. Open the Xcalibur data system, and click the Sequence Setup icon to open the Sequence
Setup window.
2. Open the sequence that you want to run as follows:

8. Start the external device.
Acquisition from the instrument begins after the external device sends the contact closure
(start) signal.
In situations where the Xcalibur data system does not control external devices such as
autosamplers, control might be through a third-party system or a built-in control system.
For example, you can control the Thermo Scientific SpectraSYSTEM™ AS3000
autosampler from its front-panel command center.
Note The SpectraSYSTEM LC modules are external devices because Thermo Fisher
Scientific does not provide Xcalibur-compatible device drivers for them. You can control
the SpectraSYSTEM LC modules from their front-panel control modules.

Triggering External Devices
Triggering External Devices
You can use Thermo Scientific mass spectrometry applications, such as the Xcalibur data
system, to trigger (activate or deactivate) an external device, such as a fraction collector, when
the LCQ Fleet MS detects a specified target.
A contact closure signal that triggers an external device can occur when one or more external
trigger activation masses are present in the mass spectrum, or the base peak intensity exceeds a
preset threshold.
To select the first option, specify the external trigger activation masses for each sample in the
Sequence Setup view in the columns for predefined user labels: ETMW (external trigger
molecular weight) or MWFC (molecular weight for fraction collection). The data system
automatically tests for the presence of external trigger activation masses and the presence of
these masses with common solvent adducts. When the external trigger activation mass is no
longer present in the scan or when the base peak intensity is less than the preset threshold, the
contact closure is deactivated.
Note For additional information about triggering an external device, refer to the Tune
Plus Help.
