Haze-gard i

An innovative view on transmittance, haze and clarity - Horizontal /vertical set-up - All with one instrument, even simultaneously ...

Measure simultaneously total transmission, haze and clarity according to ASTM and ISO test methods with the haze-gard i.

  • Large, open design sample area
  • NEW  Large touch display in color
  • NEW  Versatile holder for films and sheets
  • NEW Thin film holder, easy replacement
  • NEW Horizontal /vertical set-up
  • NEW High performance LED
  • NEW USB, LAN and USB-stick
  • NEW USB, LAN and USB-stick

The measurement of total transmittance and transmission haze is specified in two international test methods. ASTM D1003 requires the illuminants C and A, using the non-compensated method. In contrast to this, ISO 13468 asks for readings taken under D65 with a compensated method. The new haze-gard i simultaneously displays results for both test methods – now you are well prepared for any global customer specification.

The outstanding precision and reliability of the haze-gard i are guaranteed by using high performance LED technology. Reference beam, self-diagnosis, automatic long-term calibration and 10 years warranty on the lamp life make the instrument operator-friendly and safe for many years.
The open design of the haze-gard i lets you work freely to analyze any sample size. Small and large samples can be quickly changed, positioned and measured without the influence of ambient light. A versatile sample holder for films and sheets is now part of the standard delivery content and optional sample holders for taber abrasion test and cuvettes for liquids are available. To ensure the highest flexibility, the instrument can be set-up in a horizontal or vertical position.

A large color touch display with symbols to select menu functions and a dedicated measurement button make the instrument intuitive and easy to use for any task. For efficient work management, the measurement data can be statistically analyzed directly in the haze-gard i or transferred to the software smart-lab haze. Thus, measurement data can be graphed in trend reports over time to evaluate process stability. Data transfer from the instrument to the PC can be performed via USB-cable, through direct LAN connection to a network or saved on a USB-stick.
