LAUDA Viscometer iVisc
LAUDA Viscometer iVisc
• Capillary viscometer compliant with DIN 51562, ASTM D445
• Fully automated measurement and evaluation
• Easy "Plug & Play" handling

The fully automatic, space-saving iVisc is easy to operate and ideal for starting out in professional viscometry. Simply plug in the USB cable, start the software and the capillary viscometer is ready to use. The iVisc can be operated independently with a low-cost computer or netbook.

The compact, intelligent viscosity measuring stand is designed for a wide range of standard glass capillaries (e.g. Ubbelohde, Cannon-Fenske and micro-Ostwald). With a suitable LAUDA clear-view thermostat (e.g. LAUDA ECO ET 15 S) and the appropriate glass capillaries, kinematic viscosities can be determined in the range from 0.3 up to 30.000 mm²/s. This versatility allows for a broad range of applications: solution viscosity of polymers, determining chain length of proteins or temperature resistance of lubricants are just a few application examples in which reliable results are required.

Distinguishing Features:
• "Plug & play" equipment installation
• Connection of up to two iVisc per computer
• Intuitive software user guidance
• Start/stop buttons on the equipment
• Exact and intelligent optical meniscus sensing even for problematic fluids
• Control and power supply possible from a computer via USB (PC, notebook etc.)
• LED operating status indicator
• Only one cable (USB) for control and power supply
• Only one Watt power consumption
• Measuring temperature from -20 up to 150 °C
