Michell Instruments announces the launch of their flagship S8000
precision hygrometer range with improved features, common user interface and
new look. The upgraded S8000 chilled mirror hygrometer range will help Michell
Instruments maintain their position as the world’s most popular and
cost-effective family of industrial chilled mirror hygrometers.
The first of the upgraded range released in April 2018 included the
S8000 RS and S8000 Remote models; this will be followed by the very popular
mid-range S8000 Integrale, due shortly.
The chilled mirror hygrometers from Michell cover a dew-point range from
-100¡C dp to +120¡C dp, using both integral and remote sensors. The remote
sensors can survive environmental temperatures up to +120¡C, and therefore, can
be positioned directly at the point of interest.
Michell’s upgraded S8000 series chilled mirror hygrometers now use the
same intuitive, touch-screen HMI to simplify operation and configuration. Multi-instrument
users can use the common interface to switch between models.
Key features also include a complete range of communication options on
all models, with USB, Ethernet, RS232 or RS485 allowing connectivity to be
established with your system; data logging to SD card provided as standard for
convenient standalone operation; and updated cases for a fresh, easy-to-clean
surface and distraction-free look.
These high-precision instruments use the fundamental chilled mirror
principle to ensure reliable and drift-free measurements of dew-point.
The S8000 RS offers an accuracy of ±0.1¡C dew point, and can measure dew
points down to -90¡C with no need for additional cooling. Typical applications
range from use as a calibration reference, to industrial settings where precise
control of humidity is critical such as semi-conductor manufacturing.
The S8000 Remote combines high accuracy with a remote sensor for
measuring directly in the process. Typical applications include environmental
chamber verification, pharmaceutical manufacturing or as a National Measurement
Institute traceable precision reference tool for field calibrations.
