Lamp specialist Heraeus Noblelight unveils D2plus at Pittcon 2011

Lamp specialist Heraeus Noblelight unveils D2plus at Pittcon 2011
• Heraeus presents the widest range of analytical lamps

• Latest development in Deuterium lamps: D2plus - Higher Stability and Lower Optical Noise thanks to the unique combination of a new advanced design and ELP technology

Heraeus Noblelight, one of the technology and market leaders in the field of specialty light sources will again exhibit at Pittcon, to be held in Atlanta, Georgia in March 2011. Pittcon is the leading showcase for scientific and technical innovation with a singular focus on laboratory science.

The latest technology in Deuterium lamps will be released:
Heraeus has developed the next generation of Deuterium lamps D2plus , a revolutionary new concept that instrument manufacturers can design into their systems, with the resulting benefits from higher throughput and the best precision analytical results. Uniquely positioned with the widest range of special purpose analytical lamps, Heraeus will present high-quality light sources for numerous applications and all leading instrument brands.

“ D2plus is an exciting development for our OEM customers”, explains Stephen Attwood, Sales Director of Heraeus Noblelight Analytics. “System Designers and End Users are pushing the envelope for performance, demanding faster throughput and even more accurate analysis. Heraeus has combined its broad knowledge of materials technology – UV/Quartz Glass and coatings, metals and ceramics – with advanced Deuterium lamp design, to satisfy this demand. This results in higher intensity and lower optical noise, producing the highest precision analytical results.”

Deuterium lamps are now available with 0.5 and 1.0 mm apertures with a minimum lifetime of 2000 hours for UV-Vis spectrophoto¬meters, new design HPLC and the even more demanding UHPLC instruments.

“ D2plus Deuterium lamps include Heraeus’ Enhanced Lifetime Performance (ELP) technology,” Theo Schneider, Product Manager of Heraeus Noblelight goes on to explain. “ELP guarantees 50% more initial intensity and greater than 2x residual intensity compared to conventional Deuterium lamps. Customers benefit from faster and higher accuracy measurements – even at the end of lamp-life.”

Heraeus Noblelight, leading manufacturer of specialty light sources, is a global player in the industry. Deuterium and Hollow Cathode Lamps, PID and specialty lighting from Heraeus are not only engineered for long lifetime, but also for the highest precision and stability. Extensive testing of all light sources ensures they meet the specifications needed to give reliable and reproducible performance for the most demanding applications. Heraeus technology provides high quality and capability in modern analytical equipment, reducing Cost of Ownership and supporting the most sensitive analysis.

Heraeus Noblelight develops and manufactures specialty light sources and power supplies for a wide range of analytical applications. Heraeus experts are available to support instrument manufacturers with customised designs for future developments.

Come talk to our experts at the Heraeus Booth # 3434 Pittcon 2011, Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, USA to understand how you can design in Heraeus technology to benefit your customers.

Pittcon 2011 takes place from March 14 through March 18, 2011.

At the 2018 ILA Berlin Air Show from April 25–29, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is showcasing extreme high-speed Laser Material Deposition (EHLA): A video documents how for metal components that are highly loaded, EHLA has already proved itself as an alternative to hard chrome plating, which is now allowed only under special conditions.

When the EU restricted the use of hexavalent chromium compounds to special applications requiring authorization, the move prompted a rethink in the surface...

Im Focus: Radar for navigation support from autonomous flying drones

At the ILA Berlin, hall 4, booth 202, Fraunhofer FHR will present two radar sensors for navigation support of drones. The sensors are valuable components in the implementation of autonomous flying drones: they function as obstacle detectors to prevent collisions. Radar sensors also operate reliably in restricted visibility, e.g. in foggy or dusty conditions. Due to their ability to measure distances with high precision, the radar sensors can also be used as altimeters when other sources of information such as barometers or GPS are not available or cannot operate optimally.

Drones play an increasingly important role in the area of logistics and services. Well-known logistic companies place great hope in these compact, aerial...
