Airborne Particle Counter
EMD Millipore o;ers its APC Smart Touch airborne particle
counter for cleanroom monitoring. The units are factory
calibrated in compliance with ISO 21501-4.
The system o;ers dual ;ow rates for cleanroom ;lter
testing and monitoring, eliminating the need to invest in
multiple instruments and reducing costs associated with
routine calibration events. Equipped with two high-capacity batteries, the instrument is designed for continuous sampling and o;ers a large memory capacity.
The visual representation of sampling locations, including designated sampling points,
minimizes risk of human errors. The instrument's large color touch screen with commonly
used icons facilitates easy and intuitive operability. All required actions start from the main
screen. The instrument is easy to clean and disinfect, and comes with accessories including
a compressed gas adaptor for high pressures.
TandD Corp. o;ers two versions of its
temperature/humidity data logger: the
TR-702NW with integrated Ethernet, and the
TR-702AW with Wireless integrated 802.11b/g
Wi-Fi. The units will automatically “push” current readings and recorded data via ftp to a
server of the customer’s choosing, or via email
at a set interval or ;xed time of day.
The 700W Series has an internal Web
server for directly viewing current readings, and a contact closure for triggering
an external device in the event of an alarm
condition. Both of units have a temperature
range of 32 to 131 °F and a humidity range of
10 to 95% RH.
West Control Solutions o;ers the CAL 9500P,
a programmable controller for temperature
and process control applications. The CAL
9500P is compatible with CALgra;x software
which enables data logging, process data
archiving, chart recording, virtual instrument
display, and on-screen alarms to monitor
and control equipment from any computer
connected to the process network.
Pro;les can be created on both the front
panel and via CALgra;x software. The step-by-step HMI structure for intuitive con;guration
of the controller allows memory to be freely
allocated for programs up to 126 segments
or up to 31 programs.
Oldham releases the MX 43, an analog and digital controller designed for the continuous measurement and
control of the gases present in the atmosphere. The MX
43 manages both digital lines and analog channels, and
allows up to 32 detectors to be distributed on eight lines.
The unit is available with a programming CD that is
compatible with any MX 43 controllers already in use.
Users con;gure the controller's parameters on their
computer and transfer these parameters directly to the
MX 43 using a USB cable. The COM 43 application can be
installed on a computer from a CD and gives access to all of the controller's options, such as
con;guration of measurement channels; simpli;ed relay programming; up to ;ve on-board
functions (OR, AND, NOR, NAND, VOTING); and management of audible alarms with timer
options (holding time, automatic acknowledgment, reactivation, evacuation).
AirCare Automation Inc. o;ers the ACC7052
(ACC7152) Touch-Screen Color Console, allowing
the user to monitor and control a cleanroom from
a single location.
The 5.7- or 12.1-in. color touch-screen display is
custom con;gured to provide e;ective communication and control of each FFU in the cleanroom.
Fans are controlled at either the facility, group
(room), or individual level. The AirCare
Consoles can adjust return air, shut-down room-lighting during o; hours, and monitor the room sensors (pressure, temperature, particle counters) from one control screen.
The console can be con;gured to adjust cleanroom air-;ow (closed loop) to maintain
pressure or particle count levels. Ethernet options provide information sharing with the
building management system, and the built-in “remote operator” allows access to the control system without having to be resident at the touch-screen.
