New Raman spectrometers provide IIoT connectivity

| By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey

The Kaiser Raman embedded analyzer (photo) collects in-situ process measurements, enabling realtime process monitoring, optimization and control. With this continuous automation, users can maintain a continuous pulse on the safety, quality and efficiency of their operations — whether in laboratory or manufacturing settings. Kaiser Raman Rxn analyzers perform self-monitoring and self-diagnostics to ensure the validity of each measurement, and to enable seamless lab-to-process model transferability and equipment scalability. This latest Raman Rxn portfolio, comprised of the Raman Rxn2 and Rxn4 base analyzer models, integrates analyzer and control software in a fixed purpose device with built-in intelligence. To ease maintenance, Raman Rxn2 and Rxn4 analyzers perform self-calibration, utilizing spectral correction methods in applications when periodic system calibration is not required. The analyzers can be configured with 532-, 785- or 1,000-nm excitation wavelengths, with the ability to measure up to four channels. Measurements can be taken inline, online or at-line. — Kaiser Optical Systems, Inc., an Endress+Hauser company, Greenwood, Ind.
