TRA 520 Spectrophotometer

Measure Liquids, Gels, and Powders with the TRA (Adaptor) Series

The TRA series have been designed according to precision engineering as the ideal adaptor for the Lovibond® range of spectrophotometers. The robust shape makes them ideal for use in any laboratory. The angled viewing panel makes measurements easy-to-read. The integral lid blocks any ambient light since no external light interferes with the measurements. 

Features

  • Not Everything is Flat, Not Everything is Solid
  • Awkward Objects Can Be Difficult to Measure
  • The TRA (Accessory) is a Precision Engineered Portable Docking Station for the TR Range of Handheld, Sphere, Versatile Spectrophotometers
  • Provides a Light Controlled Environment for the Measurement of Liquids, Gels, and Powders
  • Precision Engineering
    Designed specifically for the Lovibond® Spectrophotometers, the instruments fit tightly into the housing to avoid any ambient lighting entering the sample.
  • Accurate Measurements Every Time
    Each TRA kit is supplied with a white background plate to ensure consistency of readings. Background colour is critical when measuring translucent of transparent samples.
  • Flexibility of Application
    Supplied with 3 different optical glass cells (10mm, 20 and 30 mm path length, the TRAs support a wide variety of samples. Thicker and more viscous materials are easier to handle if the largest 30 mm cell is used. In other cases, a smaller volume of sample may only be available, hence the 10 mm cell.

Supplied with:

  • Complete a TR 520 or 500 kit (including power supply and calibration foot).
  • TR Accessory (including sample cover).
  • White background plate.
  • 10, 20 and 30mm Optical Glass cells.
