The S8000 RS precision chilled mirror hygrometer from Michell Instruments has proved to be a popular reference instrument with smaller calibration laboratories, thanks to their compact size, light weight and ease of use.
The compact, standalone chilled mirror hygrometers allow small calibration laboratories to generate extra revenue by extending their service to humidity calibration. Being the smallest and lightest hygrometer in its class, the S8000 RS allows the laboratories to extend their ranges without needing to extend their premises. The easy-to-use instrument also suits in-house reference labs at larger organisations.
Designed to measure dew points down to -90°C (0.1ppmV) with an accuracy of ±0.1°C, S8000 RS precision chilled mirror hygrometers do not require any additional external cooling equipment to accurately reach these dry dew points, unlike many other hygrometers in this class.
Even without all the extra cooling equipment, the S8000’s nearest competitor in performance weighs an extra 28kg. Designed to fit into a standard 17” rack, the S8000 is one of the most compact, convenient and cost-effective hygrometers in its class.
The S8000 RS precision chilled mirror hygrometer features a compact design thanks to a sophisticated new optical system that detects very small changes in moisture condensed on the mirror surface, guaranteeing high sensitivity and fast response when measuring low dew points.
Key features of S8000 RS precision chilled mirror hygrometers include a high-contrast LCD touch screen for ease of operation; USB or Ethernet connections supplied as standard to enable remote operation and data logging via a PC or network; and 5-point calibration traceable to national standards, with UKAS accredited calibration available.
Michell chilled mirror hygrometers are available in Australia from AMS Instrumentation and Calibration .
