Features of Accela RI Detector
  • An automatic intensity adjustment that compensates for deteriorating sensitivity due to flowcell contamination or reduced light levels
  • A solenoid valve that operates at half its rated voltage and a tungsten lamp that operates at a reduced voltage to maximize component life
  • Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) that provide status information about the detector
  • A dynamic operating range of 1.00 to 1.75 RIU, which makes the detector suitable for a variety of applications
  • Integrated instrument control from the ChromQuest data system, which provides automated temperature control, a rise time filter, a purge function, an autozero function, and built-in calibration procedures
