XC-6000EM MercSampler™ Console

XC-6000EM MercSampler™ Console

The XC-6000EM MercSampler™ meter console captures all data necessary for paired sorbent trap sampling in accordance with PS 12B or Method 30B by simplifying sampling requirements through the automation of data acquisition, sample flow adjustments, leak checks, calculations, temperature control, and calibrations. Data is easily transferred to a Windows-based PC through Ethernet and can be monitored remotely through Modbus connectivity. The meter console controls the sample flow rate proportional to the stack flow rate and determines the standardized volume extracted through each sorbent trap. The XC-6000 firmware (embedded software) has been designed to utilize the technical features of the RISC based microchip micro-controllers which provide decision making as well as precise ‘autonomous’ control of the console while the laptop or PC is not connected.

All applicable components are rated 120 V at 60 Hz or 240 V at 50 Hz.
