TUCSON, Ariz., Jan. 28, 2005 – Thermo Electron Corporation, the leading supplier of stack gas monitors to the U.S. power generation market and the global leader in ambient air monitoring analyzers, announced the launch of its iSeries line of gaseous pollutant analyzers. This latest line, with monitoring capabilities for a broad range of gaseous pollutants, has been introduced to enhance the many capabilities of Thermo’s popular cSeries line of analyzers and to respond to the increasing compliance-related needs of customers.
The rapid industrialization of developing nations has placed an increased emphasis on the necessity to monitor global air quality which insures the well being of both people and the environment. Furthermore, via the Kyoto Protocol, climatologists and international government bodies are working to promote the reduction of harmful emissions, otherwise known as greenhouse gases, in the atmosphere. By providing accurate and reliable measurements for both urban air quality monitoring and stack gas emissions monitoring, the iSeries is the first line of defense in this global challenge to improve air quality.
Thermo Electron has been serving the regulatory and industrial safety communities with dependable monitoring solutions since 1970, and dating back to the original Clean Air Act. Deriving from a wealth of experience and customer input, Thermo’s new line of products combine rugged, plant-proven components, advanced electronics, and operator friendly software with a flexible, easy-to-service package that establishes a new benchmark for gas analysis instrumentation. With added features like Ethernet Connectivity, Flash Memory, Programmable Soft Keys and Captive Thumbscrew Component Mounting, the iSeries is now easier to interface, easier to maintain and easier to use.
“Our customers view reliability, simplicity, and useability as key necessities in their air quality analyzers,” noted Greg Herrema, president of Thermo’s Environmental Instruments Division. “With the iSeries line, we’ve developed a superior line of products with our customers’ specific needs in mind. Drawing on decades of experience in this market, Thermo’s iSeries line of products combines industry leading sensitivity and performance with the highest reliability available on the market today.”
Key enhancements made to the iSeries line of analyzers include:
New Ethernet Port – Built-in Ethernet connectivity enables easy networking with existing control and data management systems, as well as convenient remote access allowing for system status review from any Internet connection.
Product Commonality – The new analyzers contain fewer parts and, from one gas to another, share a similar design, user interface and many common components making them easier to service and easier to train. Once a user becomes familiar with a single instrument, system conformity allows for familiarity with the entire line.
Easier User Interaction – A larger, more intuitive display and redesigned interface results in easier operation. With fast, intuitive navigation and simple, menu-driven programming, the software is easy to learn, even for inexperienced operators.
Enhanced I/O functionality – New connectivity capabilities make it easy to integrate iSeries instruments into various plant operations and data management systems. The new line of instruments are also compatible with Thermo’s earlier generation analyzers allowing for easy fit into current monitoring systems.
Offering the widest choice of air quality instruments and systems, with technology sensitive enough to detect atmospheric gases down to the sub-parts per billion, Thermo Electron’s iSeries introduces the industry’s leading instrumentation for the detection of a broad range of targeted gaseous pollutants.
