The latest developments are said to extend the benefits of Malvern Link II to the company’s Mastersizer and Zetasizer analyser ranges, streamlining their use for applications in process monitoring and control.

New drivers in Malvern Link II provide a single interface for the Mastersizer 2000, Mastersizer 3000 and the Zetasizer Nano systems, allowing for secure and connection to a variety of automated control systems, including DCS, SCADA and PLC. This single interface allows users to simply establish automated monitoring and rapidly implement efficient closed-loop control.
 
Having the ability to exploit the data produced by any analyser is the key to optimising its value. Increasingly, this means embedding it within an automated control system, often alongside other instrumentation, to implement multi-variate control. Historically, such integration has been an expert task and the significant attendant costs have tended to inhibit uptake.
