FTControl Software- for straightforward filter testing with welas® digital

DescriptionFT Control Screenshot

FTControl Software allows reliable, rapid and repeatable filter tests and fractional separation efficiency measurements with welas® digital aerosol spectrometers.

The user friendly FTControl software allows individually programmable sequence programmes for the fractional separation efficiency measurement. The user is then guided by a simple navigation menu through the measuring programme and the results are calculated and displayed automatically.

The integrated test rig control built in to FTControl allows the individual test rig components e.g. volumetric flow rate controllers, aerosol generators and up/downstream switches to be controlled remotely and thereby fully automate the filter testing.

The Palas® software solutions in the field of particle measuring technology, filter testing and test rig control are based on many years of experience and were further developed and optimised in close co-operation with international customers and so is particularly practical and user freindly offering many advantages in daily application.
