Solar Digital Burette Solar Technology for Sustainable Performance
The solar-powered digital burette by Hirschmann Laborgeräte is powered exclusively using photovoltaic.
Power is supplied to the solarus electronics via the solar cell at the rear. Charging and changing of batteries, excessive stand-by costs or returning the unit for replacement of lithium cells are therefore a thing of the past. Solarus exploits instead the advantages of solar technology: comfortable, simple, environmentally friendly, inexhaustible and free. As stated in a press release, the use of superior-quality solar cells ensures a reliable power supply at all times, even where lighting conditions are restricted in the laboratory.
Easily replaceable valves, individual calibration with “Quick-Cal” and permanent storage of the manufacturer’s calibration mean that solarus can be adapted rapidly and flexibly. The vivid digital display prevents meniscus reading errors and is always clearly legible, regardless of the viewing angle. The handwheels with a soft touch surface are ergonomically optimised for precise control. Solarus is available in a 10, 20 and 50 ml version. Thanks to its innovative technology, the Solarus 10 ml enables titration of the smallest volumes with an indicating range of 10 μl to 99.99 ml in 10 μl graduations. The ejection unit with a fine tip is supplied as a standard component.
With its unique function and design, Solarus not only impressed users, but also the jury. Since the market launch, it has regularly been among those products nominated for awards and the prize winners of prestigious national and international design competitions, the manufacturer points out.
