    The MD 610 and MD 600 give you mobile devices in a modern design with the analytical features of laboratory photometers.

    All important water analysis parameters from A(luminium) to Z(inc) are covered by these two devices. Combined with the high precision of Lovibond® reagents, a reliable and quick analysis of water samples is guaranteed. Reagent tablets, powder reagents, liquid reagents, or cuvette tests are used depending on the method.

    Six long-lasting LEDs serving as a light source in combination with interference filters guarantee the highest precision. The devices are designed without moving optical parts and thus have a maintenance- free measuring unit. Up to 1,000 data records can be stored in both the MD 610 and the MD 600.

    The AquaLX® app, available free of charge, offers the possibility of transferring measurements to smart phones or tablets via Bluetooth®. The data management then enables analysis and export as a CSV file or graph via email. The app is available free of charge for AndroidTM and iOS®.

    The proven MD 600 photometer uses the classic in- frared interface with which data can be transferred by means of the IRiM module to the PC or laptop.

    * available as an option : IRIM (infra-red interface module)

    N.I.S.T. Traceability
    The instrument has a factory calibration, which is related to international standards, which are not N.I.S.T traceable. The instrument may be calibrated by the user in a “user calibration mode” with N.I.S.T traceable standards.
    (N.I.S.T. = National Institute of Standards and Technology)

    New methods
    Test methods are regularly updated to suit market requirements. You can find software updates for new methods and additional languages on our website under Support.

    With the help of an external mathematical program, the corresponding polynomial is created from data pairs (concentration/absorption).

    A known polynomial may also be used. 25 order polynomials (y = A+Bx+Cx2 +Dx3 +EX4 + FX5) can be stored together with user-specific parameters such as wavelength, measuring range, unit and number of decimals.

    This function can be used to measure 2 to 14 known standards. On the basis of the concentrations/absorption pairs obtained, the photometer will calculate a linear interpolation between the measured points. Up to 10 methods can be stored for further sample measurements.
