This instrument, known as SULEICA (Suprathermal Energy Ionic Charge Analyser), was supplied by the Max-Planck Institut fuer extraterrestrische Physik. It used a combination of electrostatic deflection, time-of-flight measurement and energy analysis in solid-state detectors. From these it was able to distinguish the charge and mass of all major ions from hydrogen through to iron for ion energies between 5 and 270 keV/q. Full details are available in the following paper:
