New ramé-hart Model 205 Standard FireWire Goniometer

This month we've introduced the newest addition to our product lineup: our Model 205 Standard FireWire Goniometer. This model is similar to our best-selling Model 200 tool as it shares the same rail system, stage, backlighting subsystem, and micro-syringe fixture and assembly. There are two distinct differences, however: Model 205 uses our new CCD FireWire camera. In addition to high speed capture, the new camera has a FireWire interface. This makes it easier to connect to a notebook PC as a dedicated Frame Grabber card is no longer necessary. Additionally, we provide a driver for supporting the hardware on any current-generation Windows-based PC with FireWire interface. Our Model 205 includes a PC and LCD, but on request we can remove these items and lower the cost of the tool and shipping accordingly.

The other exciting component that's new with the Model 205 is a new version of DROPimage software: DROPimage Image Standard 2.0. This next generation software which has been in development for over a year supports the FireWire interface. Our more basic version of DROPimage 2.0 is available for our Model 120 and is called DROPimage CA. The CA edition supports contact angle measuring and has tools for calibration and saving images and data. DROPimage Standard 2.0, like its predecessor 1.5 which is currently shipping with Models 200 and 300, supports contact angle studies but also has a full suite of tools for surface energy analysis as well as a tool for using our Automated Dispensing System. Later this year we anticipate releasing a 2.0 FireWire-ready version of DROPimage Advanced, our full-featured suite of tools which include tools for interfacial tension and support for dynamic and advanced studies.

If you would like a price quotation or more information about our new Model 205, please contact us. On request we would be happy to email you our current (updated for 2006) price list and a PDF brochure for the Model 205 or any product we carry. 

Featured Product
This month's featured product is our High Pressure Chamber.

Above is an image of part of the control system that drives our high pressure chamber.

This accessory includes a high-pressure chamber, a pressure control system, and a proportional temperature controller. It is well-suited for liquid-liquid studies (oil and water, for example) and liquid-liquid-solid studies -- both of which are fully supported by our DROPimage Advanced software (Model 500). The chamber temperature can be controlled up to 230°C. The chamber supports pressures up to 68 Atmospheres, or about 1000 PSI.

The high pressure chamber is supported on our current-generation Models 100, 300, and 500 and our legacy Models 100 and A100.

If you wish for more information regarding this accessory, please email or call.
