Durable, maintenance-free inline refractometer for real-time concentration measurements and production control of raw, intermediate, and final products. Industry-leading optics and maintenance-free operation with full CIP/SIP capability.

Key features

Maintenance-free – forget servicing and operating costs

Maintenance-free – forget servicing and operating costs

The inline refractometer L-Rix 4100/5100/5200 uses industry-leading optics which dramatically extends the instrument’s service life, increases reliability and safety, and reduces costs. Once adjusted at the factory, L-Rix 4100/5100/5200 operates with the stored adjustment values for its entire lifetime. Benefit from “install and forget” simplicity and years of continuous operation.

Inline and highly accurate – real-time concentration measurement where it matters most

Inline and highly accurate – real-time concentration measurement where it matters most

L-Rix 4100/5100/5200 provides continuous, real-time concentration results analogous to those of laboratory refractometers. It gives you automatic control and monitoring of your process – at precisely the right point.

Robust – for minimized downtime

Robust – for minimized downtime

Rigid stainless-steel housing for robust measurements under adverse process conditions, along with ingress protection of the enclosure, shield against water jets and immersion. Once CIP/SIP routines are completed, the sensor reactivates in just minutes, to minimize downtime.

Plug and play – easy setup with maximum compatibility

Plug and play – easy setup with maximum compatibility

No special training is required to set up and operate the instrument. L-Rix 5100/5200 is set up quickly and easily using the touchscreen interface of the built-in evaluation unit, via the Pico 3000 software, or mPDS 5 evaluation unit, while L-Rix 4100 comes ready with analog outputs and a touchscreen interface.

The sensors provide user-friendly diagnostics based on standard status categories according to NAMUR NE 107. Modular and expandable, L-Rix 5100/5200 can be easily adapted to support several communications protocols including analog (4 mA to 20 mA), Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP, PROFIBUS DP, PROFINET IO, and EtherNet/IP.
