Key features of the Sonicator Q700 are touch screen
control and programmability
. The following images are actual
screens from the Sonicator.
This screen is an example of a program in progress. Amplitude, pulse on/off time, temperature and energy delivered values are all clearly displayed.
This Program Setting screen enables the user to set the parameters for their program. Up to 10 individual programs can be saved.
Touch Screen Control
A large, color LCD touch screen clearly displays all operating parameters and options.
Full Amplitude Control
Amplitude (intensity) is controlled from 1-100% giving a greater degree of resolution and the ability to pinpoint the amplitude needed to effectively process your sample.
Parameters including processing times, pulse on/off and amplitude can be saved to memory and run by the touch of a button.
Adjustable pulse On and Off times to reduce the heat gain in temperature sensitive samples.
Run Multiple Programs in Sequence
Multiple programs can be run in sequence. For example, the unit can be programmed to sonicate at 50% amplitude for 5 minutes, shut off for 2 minutes and re-start at 25% amplitude for 10 minutes. Up to 5 programs can be run in succession.
Total Energy Output Display
Energy delivered to the probe is displayed in both Watts and Joules.
The Sonicator digitally tracks frequency changes in the converter / tip assembly caused by load and temperature changes and maintains electrical efficiency at all times. Manual tuning (common on older systems) is not necessary.
The unit is equipped with fault detection circuitry to shut down sonication in the event that an error is detected.
An optional temperature probe is available for those customers who wish to monitor the temperature of their sample. If the temperature limit is reached, sonication shuts down to prevent overheating.
The new Sonicator is built lead free.
