2060 Human Interface – A durable and reliable industrial process controller

With a reliable and robust industrial process controller, any process challenge is a piece of cake. The 2060 Human Interface from Metrohm Process Analytics enables optimal process control in hazardous and non-hazardous areas.

Thanks to the variety of process communication protocols and the 2060 software, this industrial process controller not only connects, controls, and displays results from process spectrometers (e.g., NIR or Raman). It facilitates the acquisition of analytical data from Metrohm process analyzers, displays and transfers results to any Distributed Control System or Programmable Logic Controller (DCS, PLC), seamlessly connects to external systems (e. g., sensors), and smoothly executes advanced programs.

Variety of probes for even the most demanding samples

A broad range of reflectance, transflectance, and transmission probes and flow cells are available, making the NIRS XDS Process Analyzer suitable for the harshest conditions.

In addition, Metrohm Process Analytics has developed dedicated probes specifically designed for fluid bed dryers, granulators, and fermenters.

Optimal accuracy thanks to MicroBundle fiber technology

The optical MicroBundle fibers used in the NIRS XDS Process Analyzer ensure excellent signal transmission. As a result, you can rely on superior analytical performance for powders, slurries, granules, etc.

The fibers are temperature-insensitive and have a superior mechanical and chemical resistance.

Single fibers for longer distance

If clear or slightly opaque liquids are to be analyzed, single fibers can be used. These optical fibers allow you to set up the analyzer more than 100 m away from the sampling point and still benefit from fast analyses.

One NIRS analyzer for up to 9 different sampling points

The NIRS XDS process analyzer is available as a single-point, 4-channel, or 9-channel system allowing cost-effective measurements at multiple sampling locations.

Both single and MicroBundle fibers can be connected to the same system so various sample types can be measured with one instrument.
