VUV-40F Dual Beam Fixed Wavelength Absorbance Monitor
The VUV-40F is a dual beam, fixed wavelength, optical absorbance detector for liquid chromatography. The OEM module can be configured in a variety of ways from standalone operation to incorporation into a dedicated analyzer. Choice of light source includes: Hg and D2 lamps for UV absorbance and high intensity LEDs for the visible range.
A series of sample cell options are also available from preparative to micro volume. Standard data output formats available are USB, RS232 and IEE488. Typical applications are in HPLC systems, dedicated analyzers and private label instrumentation.
* Constant temperature with standard 10 mm cell (air).
|Light source||Low pressure mercury lamp 254 nm|
Deuterium 190 nm-400 nm
LED (discrete wavelengths)
