The RFM300 series of refractometers has joined our range of new touchscreen instruments. The RFM300-T now boasts a 7” touchscreen user interface with easy to use menus giving this powerful refractometer, suitable for harsh factory environments, a fresh modern look and feel.
The RFM300-T with Peltier temperature control, 3 decimal places °Brix, and a refractive index of up to 6 decimal places is suitable for measurement and control in demanding food, beverage, chemical and industrial applications due, in part, to its shallow, easy to clean prism dish with wide beam optics. Thanks to this technology the RFM300-T Series refractometers are capable of measuring non-homogenous samples such as fruit juice with pulp, opaque chemical compounds and emulsions that are normally difficult to read with other optical refractometers.
Using the same high quality ABS plastic casing as the RFM900-T, the 300-T not only sports a modern, smarter new look but its smaller footprint takes up less room on your bench. The instrument’s new case is ergonomically designed so that any spills are dealt with by the sloping shape of the case or by the PEEK spill barrier that surrounds the shallow, easy-clean stainless steel prism dish.
Inherent to the new design is the new high definition, capacitive touch-screen display that not only facilitates operation in factory environments, even when operated whilst wearing gloves, but also serves as the centrepiece for the new software. Combined, the touchscreen and GUI help the operator quickly manoeuvre through the user and configuration menus. On-screen graphical prompts support simple operation such as method loading, calibration and routine maintenance.
RFID swipe technology comes as standard, providing clearance and a log of operator and configuration functions – especially useful when being used in FDA-regulated environments operating in accordance with 21 CFR Part 11, or where good practice is adopted, e.g. as part of HACCP.
