The new AA-65 is a versatile polarimeter suitable for measuring the optical rotations of many different types of samples from sugars to pharmaceutical products. The polarimeter is extremely easy to use and has a touchscreen digital display presenting on-screen data in full colour.
The AA65 is available in 3 versions:
The working wavelength of 589.44nm is determined by means of a factory fitted optical interference filter. The model type - angular scale (A65), sugar industry Z65 or analytical model (MA65) - is printed on the instrument label inside the sample compartment.
The AA-65 has a USB output for connection to a PC and a RS232 serial output for connection to suitable printers or other devices. Optionally, a wireless connection may be purchased for wireless communication with a computer
The AA-65 is normally supplied complete and ready to use with one stainless steel sample tube, handbook, dust cover, USB lead and Data Acquisition software for a PC. Up to 1024 readings are automatically stored by the AA-65 every time the PRINT key is touched (even when a printer is not connected). The user can view this data on the display or print it out when required.
The sample compartment has a removable temperature sensor. Optionally, you can purchase a 'dip-in' temperature sensor for use with A1 and G7 single sample tubes, or, for flow type tubes, an end cap with temperature sensor fitted. These optional temperature sensors are available to provide much faster and more accurate measurement of the actual sample temperature.
