Two 3-D detectors are allowed on an LAC/E box, whether it is two QDAs, two PDAs, or 1 QDA and 1 PDA. 

Two systems allowed, each with a PDA/QDA detector running at 300 nm maximum range for each system, 1.2 nm resolution and 5 spectra per second.


Please see page 39 of the Empower 3 FR2 Installation, Configuration, and Upgrade Guide 715003451 Rev D for specific information.

This also applies for other 3D detectors, such as 2475, ACQUITY FLR and Agilent DADs.
