The polarimeter P8000 family
With the automatic digital high-speed polarimeters in the P8000 Series, A.KRÜSS Optronic is providing a device series at the peak of technological development. The extremely fast instruments are the fastest polarimeters in the world with a measuring time of just 1 second! Despite their extreme time efficiency, they achieve high accuracy and resolution.
Features & Specifications
- Extremely time efficient
- Measuring time of just 1 second: the fastest polarimeter in the world!
- Utmost accuracy and resolution
- The convenient touchscreen enables complete sample and user management directly on the device. An integrated SQL database for saving data is also included. The polarimeters can be connected to a PC via an Ethernet interface or integrated into an existing network
- Complete GLP capability
All devices are fully digital and operated via an easy-cleaning touchscreen using an intuitive menu. The menu language can also be selected as well as the units for the results display. In addition to the optical rotation value in °, the rotation can be determined according to the international sugar scale in °Z, as a specific rotation for a known concentration of the solution or the concentration for a known specific rotation. Finally, freely selectable units can also be programmed such as for determining the molar rotation.
All models in the P8000 family include an internal SQL database in which the measuring results can be stored and managed. A serial printer connection allows for a paper version of the results to be printed via an external printer. Finally, the devices can be connected to the computer or a laboratory network, available in many companies, with an Ethernet cable which is included with all models. The measuring results can thus be kept available and reprocessed as you wish. All devices meet international quality standards and GLP principles.
The basic device P8000 is an all-round device for all analysis tasks occurring in polarimetry. It is generally suitable for use in laboratories in chemical, pharmaceutical, food and drink, sugar and cosmetics industries. In addition to individual measurements, series of measurements with pre-programmed intervals and measuring values can also be carried out automatically without the laboratory staff having to be at the device constantly. Thus, for example, the mutarotation of sugar solutions can be recorded. The measuring parameters can be stored as retrievable measuring methods. The reproducible use of uniform measuring methods for various applications in laboratory operations can be ensured as a result. A variety of user accounts can also be set up if the device is used by several employees. Measuring methods and users are recorded in the database so that all measurements can be traced even when the end uses change.
For particularly precise measurements, version P8100 is available. While the standard version P8000 already achieves excellent measuring accuracy of 0.003°, the P8100 measures to an accuracy of 0.002°.
All versions in the P8000 family are also available in two temperature-compensated versions. They can either be delivered with a PT31 (-T) thermostat or a Peltier temperature control (-PT), where the target temperature is entered directly into the touchscreen and there is no need to calibrate the thermostat.
The devices are low-maintenance. Apart from cleaning the polarimeter tubes after use and occasionally cleaning the device generally, no other maintenance is required. All devices in the P8000 family are supplied with a touchscreen pencil, detailed and easy-to-understand operating instructions and a network connection cable.
With the P8000 family, A.KRÜSS Optronic is providing a series of top-class automatic digital laboratory polarimeters.
In research and quality laboratories, in production control and monitoring product safety, the P8000 with its different versions is a reliable device that enables measurements to be made according to international and legal standards and copes with any tasks that may occur.
