SMA MicroParticle ICS Details


VAI offers a complete line of Particle Counters to meet the needs of the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, semiconductor, and electronics industries. The SMA MicroParticle ICSTM Particle Counters are used for continuous or periodic monitoring of particle counts in cleanrooms and critical environments.

The SMA MicroParticle ICS offers unmatched environmental control by utilizing the latest innovations in particle counting technology and by integrating several features not found in other Particle Counters. Unique and innovative features that are exclusive to SMA MicroParticle ICS instruments include but are not limited to advanced multi-processing, real-time meter, annotations, advanced power management, compliant reporting, data storage, and sample management.

The instruments have 6 channels and measure particles from 0.3 microns to 25.0 microns at a flow rate of 0.1 CFM (2.83 LPM). The units are easy to configure and use large icon driven touch screens. The large displays allow users to scroll quickly through large amounts of data, even while wearing gloves. SMA MicroParticle ICS systems integrate seamlessly into a facility’s current monitoring, cleanroom management, and/or building automation systems. Data can be transferred via Ethernet, USB, Wireless RS 485 and/or RS 232 ports and units can be controlled and monitored remotely via a web browser.

SMA MicroParticle ICS instruments are available in three models: HandHeld, Table Top, and Wall Mounted models. Remote models are also available for integration into facility monitoring systems. HandHeld models are lightweight, battery powered, and portable with an integrated handle for easy maneuvering during a one-handed operation. Table Top models are easy to configure units that can be used as a stand-alone battery operated instrument that can sit on any level surface or can be wall mounted for fixed sampling. The Wall Mount model is a remotely operated system that mounts to a wall for fixed sampling locations with versatile mounting options.

Additional Information
