Fremont, CA (PRWEB) March 23, 2012
Lighthouse Worldwide Solutions, a world leader in particle counting and contamination monitoring has developed the SOLAIR 1100 LD Portable Particle Counter utilizing a Laser Diode light source.
The implementation of a Laser Diode in a high sensitive particle counter overcomes limitations of the traditional HeNe based particle counters. The SOLAIR 1100 LD has a concentration limit of 500,000 particles/ft3. That is over 10 times the concentration limit of HeNe based designs. Another advantage of the SOLAIR 1100 LD is it does not need frequent cleaning, a common problem with HeNe Designs.
“Conventional HeNe Laser Particle Counters were the standard 20 years ago, and though the technology has served us in the past, HeNe based designs simply have run out of gas, when It comes to particle counting in the 21st century.” Comments Morgan Polen Vice President of Application Technology for Lighthouse Worldwide Solutions.
The SOLAIR 1100 LD has a variety of communication interfaces: Ethernet, RS-485, USB with external data storage and transfer via USB thumb drive. Designed for ISO 21501-4 compliance, the SOLAIR 1100 LD is the most accurate and reliable portable particle counter on the market.
