HachProduct Briefing Outline: Hach Ultra has introduced its ORBISPHERE 510 instrument with the capability of connecting TC sensors for process control monitoring. The instrument offers multi channel capability for both thermal conductivity sensors measuring H2 or N2 and for electrochemical sensors measuring O2. This complete system is designed for process monitoring in liquid or gas phases across a wide range of applications for the electronics industry.

Problem: Improved accuracy coupled with fast response time is a key process control attribute for advanced semiconductor processing.

Solution: Up to 3 sensors using electrochemical or thermal conductivity technologies reduces cost of installation and ownership, according to the company. A high level of accuracy, rapid response time and selective gas measurement are claimed to give reliable and effective process monitoring. Software is accessible through a full color touch-screen allowing easy configuration of the instrument for process parameters and alarms. The main window displays real time process readings, graphed sensor trends, alarm limits, temperature and event occurrence.

Applications: This complete system is designed for process monitoring in liquid or gas phases across a wide range of applications.

Platform: To assist with process investigations, data can be easily transferred using one of the digital communication standard protocols such as RS 485, Ethernet, USB or Profibus DP in addition to traditional analog outputs. The ORBISPHERE 510 provides efficient 3-in-1 process monitoring, process efficiency and minimized total cost of operation, according to the company.

Availability: May 2007 onwards.
