Palm Abbe PA201 Digital Refractometer



New Palm Abbe Digital Refractometer

PA201 - Palm Abbe Digital Refractometer 0 to 56 Brix

Laboratory Precision in the Palm of Your Hand!

The new Palm Abbe is a fourth-generation digital handheld refractometer that puts laboratory precision in the palm of your hand. Not just laboratory precision, but laboratory precision for the price of a traditional analog refractometer. It is exactly the kind of bold, cutting-edge technology you would expect from MISCO, the company that pioneered the digital handheld refractometer.

The Palm Abbe refractometer is fast, convenient, and easy to use. Simply place a drop or two of fluid in the titanium well and press a button. The custom-designed microprocessor delivers a nearly instantaneous readout in degrees Brix. Nonlinear temperature compensation is automatic and insures that fluids read between 0 and 50 C (+32 to 122 F) are measured accurately.

The large LCD display is easily read, even in dim light, and removes the subjectivity associated with interpreting where a boundary line crosses tiny scale divisions. And, it is so easy to use! The user interface consists of two buttons, one to take readings and the other to step through various menu options.

Calibration is automatic and does not require the use of special calibration solutions, or tools. The Palm Abbe refractometer automatically calibrates itself to water and is ready to use in seconds. No more screws to turn and nothing to adjust.

Palm Abbe PA201 Digital Refractometer Features:

  • Beats the Competition Palms Down
    The Palm Abbe refractometer has a wider range and twice the accuracy of the Pal-1. Compare the Palm Abbe to refractometers costing more than $1,000.

  • Digital Accuracy
    Digital refractometers remove the subjectivity associated with reading traditional refractometers.

  • Auto Temp. Compensation
    The Palm Abbe features non-linear temperature compensation that accurately compensates for fluid temperatures regardless or temperature or concentration.

  • Built Tough
    The Palm Abbe is built from high-impact, chemically resistant plastic. It is very water-resistant and designed to operate in the most demanding industrial environments.

  • Choose Up to Five Scales
    The Palm Abbe PA203 may be custom programmed with up to five different scales. Select from hundreds of available scales. If you ever change your mind, send it back to us, and we can reprogram it for you. Whatever your application we have a scale that will measure the exact unit of measure you want or we’ll make it custom for you.

  • Quality You Can Measure
    The accuracy of your measurement is always dependent on the quality of your instrument.
