Anton Paar has introduced the DMA 500 density and concentration meter for liquid analysis and quality control.
The instrument provides results with an accuracy of 0.001g/cm3.
Measurements with the DMA 500 are safe against voltage fluctuations or power outages due to the instrument's integrated rechargeable battery.
The meter automatically switches to the battery-operated mode for up to two hours of off-the-line operation - or up to six hours, if the optionally available high-performance battery is employed.
This uninterruptible power supply also gives way to liquid quality control off the line and outside traditional lab spaces, for example, in mobile laboratories or near production lines and storage tanks.
With a footprint of pocketbook size, DMA 500 is easily operated in often tight spaces such as these.
Up to 20 configurable methods with different measuring units and temperatures can be stored in the instrument; users can choose from pre-defined measuring units for the most important applications or simply customise their own output parameters.
The instrument's sample identification ensures full traceability of the measurement results.
For instant identification, a barcode reader can be connected.
The DMA 500's FillingCheck feature alerts users in case of a filling error, and the U-View feature displays a live video feed of the measuring cell for visual inspection.
A peristaltic pump to support bubble-free filling is optionally integrated.
Measuring data are saved with the according U-View images of the measuring cell for later verification.
The DMA 500 offers range of communication options: printing stored data on the optional Bluetooth printer or exporting data to a PC via Bluetooth or USB allow for fast and simple documentation.
Firmware updates, custom functions and instrument back-ups can also be transferred from or to external devices.
