In conventional single crystal diffractometers, the X-
The alternative solution is to mount the detector on a separate support frame, but
to place the detector support and the sample goniometry on a common platform. Precision
mechanics are essential in order to allow the detector to be positioned accurately
and reproducibly relative to the sample. This alternative solution was realised by
IDT for the Pilatus 2M detector installed on the Swiss-
