New HAAKE OS mobile docking station from Rheology Solutions enables users to integrate their existing measuring adapters into Thermo Scientific’s new torque rheometer platform, the HAAKE PolyLab OS.
With this upgrade, users can protect their established measuring procedures while upgrading their installations. In many cases, proven, high-quality mechanical components found in older measuring mixers single-screw and conical double-screw extruders can no longer be used because of outdated hardware and software.
The new HAAKE OS docking station addresses this problem and allows users to extend the life of their equipment. A selection of mechanical drive couplings allows users to easily fit HAAKE and other measuring adapters dating back to the 80’s onto the mobile docking station.
The PolyLab OS rheometer platform incorporated the standardised CANopen Bus that promotes connectivity.
Peripheral devices are automatically identified and graphically shown in the MS Windows-supported software.
Remote supervision and service support are also made possible. Historical mixer data and graphs can be imported into the system, for integrated data evaluation and immediate productivity gains.
Measuring data can be called up during operation, and a variety of user levels can be set to change test parameters and measurements for specific routines.
For added convenience and precision, the mobile docking station incorporated temperature control for up to four heating zones including air cooling.
