Digital Laboratory Refractometer Abbe Max AMAX10 From Misco
Abbe Max(tm) AMAX10 Digital Laboratory Refractometer
The New Wave of Refractometers
From the groundbreaking use of the Microsoft Windows CE (R) Operating System to the distinctive "wave" styling of their sturdy enclosures, the newly announced Abbe Max family of refractometers represents a bold New Wave in bench-top refractometers. Combining the power of an Intel microprocessor with the Windows graphical user-interface and precision optics has produced one of the most powerful, yet easy-to-use, refractometers available. The striking design and the innovative features of the Abbe Max family illustrate MISCOís pride in producing high-quality precision instrumentation. The unique MISCO Abbe Max family of refractometers is characterized by its power, precision, and performance.
Abbe Max is the first refractometer in the world to take full advantage of Microsoft Windows Operating System, providing unrivaled performance and a refined set of easy-to-use features. Thanks to the blistering speed and muscle of an Intel (R)computer microprocessor at the heart of the instrument and to the user-friendly Microsoft Windows CE Operating System, Abbe Max is one of the most powerful, yet convenient-to-use, laboratory refractometers ever made.
"Absolute Precision" is precision for real-world testing and represents the actual precision a user will be able to duplicate in the field, not just theoretical precision obtainable under perfectly controlled laboratory conditions. The AMAX10 is the standard-precision model with absolute rock-solid precision of +/-0.0001 refractive index ("nD") between 1.3330 and 1.5800 nD, or +/-0.1 Brix precision between 0.0 and 100.0 Brix.
Precision in Abbe Max is assured by a tightly integrated set of solid-state thermoelectric compensation elements that automatically keep the temperature of the optics and sample at a constant user-defined temperature. This completely eliminates the need to connect the refractometer to an external water bath to maintain a set temperature. Independent temperature control of the light source insures that both the wavelength and the quality of light remain constant throughout the operating range of the instrument.
Abbe Max Refractometers are designed to work in a wide range of environmental conditions. The precision optical components are isolated within a completely sealed optical assembly containing an innovative internal air-pressure compensation system. This insures that the optical components remain free of dust and condensation.
The comprehensive feature set is both functional and accessible. Since Abbe Max employs the Microsoft Windows Operating System, users familiar with Windows will find interfacing with the instrument both straightforward and intuitive. A brilliant high-resolution graphical screen serves as the main interface between the instrument and the operator. This friendly touch-sensitive device accepts the user's input and displays loads of useful information.
Abbe Max Refractometers come standard with scales for reading refractive index and Brix. Additional scales that read directly in a specific unit of measure are available from MISCO. A virtually unlimited number of these scales can be loaded into the instrumentís 32 MB of onboard storage via the USB port on either instrument or from the removable Secure Digital Card on the AMAX20.
Abbe Max AMAX10 Digital Laboratory Refractometer Features:
AMAX Remote Software to Control Your Abbe Max Digital Laboratory Refractometer from your Computer.
Refractometer Remote Access and Control has never been this easy.
AMAX Remote software extends the ease of use, that the Abbe Max is famous for, onto a Windows PC. Since the screen you see on the computer is identical to the refractometer screen, there is nothing new to learn. Anything that you can do from the Abbe Max Refractometer screen you can do from within AMAX Remote.
AMAX Remote Software also adds additional functionality to the Abbe Max. From within the AMAX Remote program, the user can open and view an Abbe Max history file in Microsoft Excel, print or save copies of the Abbe Max screen for documentation, and save and restore the Abbe Max software and settings.
Set up is simple. Just insert the program CD into the computers CD or DVD player and let the setup wizard do the rest the software installation. You then simply connect the PC to an Abbe Max Digital Laboratory Refractometer with a USB cable and you will instantly see a mirror image of the Abbe Max screen on the PC monitor.
