МС 122 / МС 124

МС 122 / МС 124 series

МС 122 and МС 124 are highly-precise multi-purpose spectrophotometers for the ultraviolet, visible and near infrared spectrum ranges: from 190 up to 1100 nm.

This up-to-date series is aimed for solving a wide scope of routine and investigation tasks connected with spectra registration and processing, quantitative analysis and multi-element analysis, as well as with kinetic measurements.

Features of spectrophotometers МС 122 / МС 124

  • Double monochromator provides low level of the stray light and the highest precision of performed measurements.
  • Modern optical layout allows investigation of small-size samples or micro-samples.
  • Embedded powerful PC allows detailed processing of measurements data and data archiving.
  • Embedded 6.4″ VGA TFT full-color liquid-crystal display (LCD).
  • A wide range of peripherals which can be connected to the device: a “mouse” manipulator, keyboard, printer, external display, external computer.
  • Direct connection to a company local network and to the Internet.
  • Modular design of a cell compartment allows the substantial extension of functional capabilities of the spectrophotometer: for instance, measurement of sample reflectance, polarization investigations, etc.

Measuring functions

  • Measurement of absorption, transmission and reflection spectra.
  • Measurement of optical density, transmittance and reflectance on the fixed wavelengths.
  • One-, two- and three- wave measurements of concentration, multi-wave measurements.
  • Kinetic measurements both on one and several wavelengths.
  • Concentration measurement with pre-programmed techniques.
  • Calculation of trichromatic and chromaticity coordinates in different colorimetric systems CIE (CIE of 1931 and CIE 1964) for various types of sources (A, B, C and D65) and color distinctions calculation according to CIE 1976.
    (CIELAB) – at operation with the external software.
  • Storage of measurement data and reports preparing.
