Sensor management for Memosens
sensors: MemoSuite Advanced calibrates
up to ten sensors at the same time

Measuring technology specialist Knick now offers an enhanced version of their sensor management software for Memosens technology: MemoSuite Advanced allows for the calibration of up to ten sensors at once. The intuitive-to-operate PC software enables users to easily pre-calibrate sensors for pH, ORP, oxygen, conductivity and temperature measurement under optimal conditions in the lab, i.e. completely dispenses with complicated on-site calibrations in adverse environmental conditions. Sensors can be connected to a PC via USB using the interface converter MemoLink included in supply.Illustration: Up to ten sensors can be calibrated at the same time with the PC-based sensor management software MemoSuite Advanced from Knick.

In addition to the calibration function, MemoSuite Advanced completely records all calibration data and logs operational times (across all or under extreme process conditions) allowing for documentation according to legal requirements such as FDA 21 CFR Part 11.

The software also displays current measuring values, sensor data and the latest adjustments and supports a multitude of established calibration methods. For pH sensors, a comprehensive buffer catalog with various buffer sets for individual compilation is available as well. If needed, customers can implement their own buffer sets. Calibration reports - the software includes several templates - or MS Excel data records can be generated. The MemoSuite database enables users to implement a predictive maintenance strategy. Lifetime sensor data records also facilitate long-term planning of replacement cycles and optimized maintenance strategies. Sensor data tables can be freely configured and database entries can be sorted, filtered or grouped and compared. In addition, the software supports visualizations of statistical findings and sensor histories, and provides an export function for detailed reports.

Stratos multi-parameter
analyzers ith fieldbus interfaces

Knick's Stratos series analyzers for pH level, conductivity and dissolved oxygen measurements are widely used in the chemical industry, in process engineering, power plant technology, and the pharmaceutical and biotechnology sector due to their exceptional versatility, high reliability and full-fledged compatibility with conventional sensor types (analog, digital, Memosens). Knick now introduces Stratos series analyzers with integrated bus interfaces for PROFIBUS DP, PROFIBUS PA or FF (Foundation Fieldbus).

Stratos Evo DP, Stratos Pro PA and Stratos Pro FF are easily integrated into new and existing host systems (PROFIBUS PA profile 3.02; FOUNDATION Fieldbus ITK 6.1.1). Smooth integration with all common automation systems has been ensured by comprehensive compatibility and interoperability tests. Stratos Pro devices for PROFIBUS PA or Foundation technology are available in versions for both hazardous areas and non-hazardous areas, while Stratos Evo DP for PROFIBUS DP is only suitable for use outside of hazardous areas. All settings can be configured directly on the device or with standardized Engineering Tools via Enhanced EDD or DTM. All process and diagnostic data as well as information regarding sensor wear or predictive maintenance (CIP/SIP) is reliably communicated via bus system to the control station. The devices comply with NAMUR NE 107 and support pro-active diagnostics. All bus devices feature intuitive handling with color-assisted user guidance. The high-contrast widescreen display signals operational status in six different colors: the standard measuring status is backlit in white, the information mode is green. The diagnostics menu, need for maintenance and hold status are each assigned a color as well. Bright red signals alarm status, while a display flashing in red indicates invalid inputs or faulty passcodes. Looping menus and self-explanatory pictograms further contribute to easy operation. Stratos devices are suitable for wall mounting, pole mounting or panel mounting. Pre-assembly of the rear unit is also possible; all parts are easily accessible due to the large terminal compartment.
