Sensors Next Generation of Optical Dissolved Oxygen Sensors
Hamilton has introduced the latest improvements to its Visiferm and Visitrace optical dissolved oxygen sensors. Visiferm RS485 sensors feature new electronics, 80 % reduction in calibration frequency, 50 % better robustness and supply security for the next decade while Visitrace is designed specifically to measure trace levels of oxygen.
Building on a foundation of continuous innovation, Hamilton Company has released the next generation of Visiferm and Visitrace optical dissolved oxygen sensors. The meticulous control of dissolved oxygen still requires frequent calibrations to avoid deviations in GMP/FDA requirements. As part of the new sensor launch, significant breakthroughs have been made in the sensor and cap design that drastically reduce the required calibration frequency and improve sensor electronic lifetime, shares the company. The new generation of Visiferm RS485 sensors features new electronics, 80 % reduction in calibration frequency, 50 % better robustness and supply security for the next decade, adds the firm.
Visiferm was designed for the biopharma market to improve ease of use. The Visiferm is autoclave and CIP/SIP capable and the intelligent sensor design allows for calibration to take place in a laboratory without the need for a transmitter. The optical measurement principle negates the need for sensitive membranes and liquid electrolytes, reducing the amount of maintenance required while still providing high precision and robust measurement response times, mentions the company.
The Visitrace, built on superior aspects of the Visiferm, is designed specifically to measure trace levels of oxygen.
