TCA 500

Thermal conductivity measuring device with heat flow meter according to ISO 8301, ASTM C 518, DIN EN 1946-3, EN 12664, EN 12667 and EN 12939

Measuring devices of the TCA 500 series are robust cabinet devices, which are especially suited for testing thicker samples. Due to the integrated Single Board Computer (SBC) with Windows 10 operating system, the software Lambda 2016 and the high resolution color touch display the devices are very user friendly.

Numerous interfaces such as RS232, USB and Gigabit Ethernet enable the connectivity to peripheral devices and the fast and convenient transfer of all relevant data. The connection to an external PC allows for performing extensive evaluations of the test results and printing of test reports.

Features:

  • Completely insulated (X) or temperature controlled (GX) test chamber to avoid external influences
  • 2 symmetrically arranged precision heat flow meters
  • 2 cooling options for different measuring ranges: internal Peltier or external recirculation cooler
  • Electrically operated plate lifting mechanism
  • Digital measurement of pressure and sample thickness
  • SBC with 32 GB SSD, Windows 10 and software Lambda 2016
  • 10.1“ color touch screen
  • Interfaces: 1x RS232, 2x USB, 1x Gigabit Ethernet
