The modular system concept offers flexible solutions for a variety of measurement tasks. In addition to standardized systems, proven components like spectral sensors or electronics are available for integration on an OEM basis.
An essential part is dedicated to measuring heads and probes suited for different sample presentations. Thus, analyses with large stand-off distances, such as goods on conveyor belts, can be realized as well as analyses requiring direct contact with the measured goods, as e.g., in pipelines or chutes. Immersion probes or flow cells are available for the analysis of liquids, pasty media, and other fluids.
For system control and data processing, we offer state-of-the-art software packages that optionally include chemometric data for smooth and stable process flow.
Analog or digital interfaces, including various bus systems, enable safe and straightforward integration into process control systems.
Lean Solutions for a Wide Range of Applications
Applications in highly regulated sectors such as e.g., pharmaceutical or food production, dedicated solutions according to current norms and guidelines are available.
Optionally, all systems can be equipped with high-speed electronic kits, reaching measuring rates up to 15,000 spectra per second, and thus covering time critical applications.
- UV spectroscopy is an extremely sensitive and specific detection method. With its typically very high extinction coefficients, measurements even at minuscule concentrations are feasible. UV spectroscopy is therefore suited for many process-analytical tasks. Furthermore, the quantitative detection of UV light sources or their impact on different materials can be easily and reliably detected.
- The VIS range models are required for color measurements over continuous wavelength ranges according to normative specifications … (e.g.: CIELAB). Also, ingredient analyses, such as those of plants concerning their chlorophyll content, are feasible.
- Versions in the long-wavelength range variants do cover not only the VIS range but also the very short-wavelength NIR range up to 1100 nm. With the simultaneous acquisition of colorimetric and content information, significant qualitative or quantitative analyses are possible.
