  • Connect and control an external dilution system

IIoT Ready - Designed for the future

Many industrial analyser platform were designed over a decade ago. Our new innovative online analyser platform has been designed with the future in mind, i.e. connectivity.

  • Remote monitoring
  • Remote data logging
  • BigData
  • Support MQTT protocol

Purged EPC (Electronics Pressure Controller) design

We have been involved in the design of gas chromatographs for over 3 decades. We understand very well the impact of a poorly designed EPC. Our EPC has been designed with high quality parts which allows a good pressure stability and its purged concept allows high leak integrity. With this design, it is impossible for the EPC to leak.

  • Robust industrial design
  • Leak impossible by design
  • Design for stability and repeatability
  • Temperature compensated pressure sensor
  • Series 300 SS manifold
  • No dead volume
  • No outgassing from wetted parts
  • Available in 30 PSIG and 100 PSIG version
  • Available for inline or bypass control

Highly robust Embedded GC Software

For us, a GC is most of time a critical part of a process. It must operate 24/7. Consequently, its software architecture has to be designed to be robust. As such, a Windows OS is not an option. The GC software used in the GCSense has been designed using a Real-Time Industrial Operating System. It also uses a principle known as system redundancy for reliability. This principle makes it almost impossible for the software to crash making sure that your GC is always up and running.

  • Industrial Real-Time Operating System
  • Designed based on system redundancy for reliability
  • Multi-methods capability with automatic sequencing synchronised with sampling system
  • Advanced signal processing
  • Touch screen interface
  • IIoT ready

Industrial grade electronics modules
