Inca is a modular device platform for multicomponent gas analysis with a particular focus in the biogas and natural-gas industries. Similar to a modular construction system, blocks for active-gas sampling, gas processing, as well as sensors, controller, data processing and communication are combined to form robust and reliable analysis systems. The standardized modules enable a variety of customized solutions for specific analysis tasks and combine optimal analysis results with a favorable cost position. When equipped accordingly, Inca enables sequential switchover of the measuring technology to different sample-gas streams from up to ten measuring points, for example, for sampling from multiple fermenters in biogas plants. A variety of sensors with different measuring ranges are available for the devices, including NDIR sensors (for CH4 and CO2), electrochemical sensors (for O2, H2S and H2), paramagnetic sensors (for O2) and acoustic cells (for specific density). — Union Instruments GmbH, Karlsruhe, Germany
