Features and Functions
ATS and BTS models are equipped with a memory bank that can store up to 20 individual sets of parameters for different samples. Each parameter can be quickly recalled from the memory by selecting a specified location from the main memory. Saving parameter sets eliminates the need to reconfigure the drying parameters when switching between samples.
The analyzer offers four different drying profiles; Standard, Slow, Step, and Fast. Selecting an appropriate profile increases the efficiency and accuracy of the moisture analysis.
The ATS and BTS require only 82 squared inches of the tabletop area. With dimensions of 7.2in x 11.4in x 6in, the analyzer has one of the smallest footprints available on the market, which allows to save precious space in your lab or work area.
ATS and BTS models are equipped with a USB and RS232 communication ports which allows the analyzer to connect to a PC, printer, or a peripheral device. Torbals free software packages such as STAT or Pro Mass can be used to collect, plot, and analyze data sent from the analyzer.
Every analyzer is equipped with a PS2 keyboard port which allows the users to connect and external alphanumeric keyboard. The keyboard can be used to insert notes for printed reports.
The analyzer produces a printer record of each performed analysis. The printout includes essential information regarding the analysis, such as the samples initial mass, drying time, drying temperature, final result, as well as notes entered by the user.
The analyzer's graphical LCD makes the unit user friendly and easy to use. The LCD can be configured to display data and text in a negative (White on Black) or positive (Black on White).
The analyzer is equipped with a graph plotting feature which creates a graph of samples taken during the analysis. The feature is very useful when performing an analysis for the first time and determining the optimum drying parameters for a specific sample.
The analyzers temperature sensor can be recalibrated or adjusted with an external high precision thermometer. This is a very useful feature in applications which require high temperature control, and accuracy.
The analyzers front panel has seven intuitively organized keys which are soft and easy to press. The keypad is sealed, therefore providing additional protection from dust or accidental spills.
When turned on the analyzer performs a self-test that verifies proper functionality of main components. Initial heating is also performed to dry excess moisture particles that maybe present in the chamber while the analyzer is not used.
