Polartronic H532 Polarimeter

  • Highest measuring precision
  • Measuring of optical rotatory dispersion (ORD)
  • Up to 5 wavelengths
  • Calibration free because of spectral lamps

Spectral multi-wavelength polarimeter

NEW – High resolution of 0.0001° !

The high-resolution (0.0001 °) polarimeter H532 with up to 5 wavelengths and the highest precision!

The technology of the Polartronic H532, which is securely packaged under the elegant housing, works with a further developed software, which is known from the ATR series refractometer, with a large programmable display. The input of  the following is possible: sample identification numbers, statistical evaluation in the case of multiple measurements and protocols to be defined by the user for output via a printer or PC, individually adjustable for each of the 10 available methods.

Polarimeters of the Polartronic H series are automatic, high-resolution measuring instruments with the following characteristics:

  • Accurate measurement of the optical activity of liquids according to ICUMSA, O.I.M.L. And Australian Standard K 157, European and American Pharmacopoeia
  • For the highest demands in quality and research laboratories
  • High precision over the entire measuring range by direct measurement of the angle
