The Shodex model RI-101 is a new refractive index detector with several enhancements and improvements. The unit features a full color liquid crystal that allows the chromagtographer to easily check the detector status as well as monitor the detector baseline in real time. An automatic start-up sequence allows the end user to purge, calculate noise and drift values and auto zero before a "ready" status is indicated. In addition, fast warm-up and baseline stability are assured. Temperature can be set from 30°C to -50°C in 1°C increments. The detector also has a solvent leak sensor that can generate an output signal that will shut down the pump in the unlikely event of a solvent leak inside the detector.
A complete series of input/output signal terminals and an RS-232 port allow easy integration and automation with any HPLC system. Help screens and error alert messages guide the user in the event of unusual operation. A validation screen displays temperature, lamp voltage, lamp life, span, noise and drift.
