Compact photometer PF-12Plus
Increased flexibility
• More than 100 preprogrammed methods

• Nephelometric turbidity measurements

• Backlit graphic display with intuitive userguidance

• USB interface for data transfer, update
and power supply

Increases flexibilty
The new compact photometer PF-12Plus is a consequent extension of its well accepted prerunner PF-12. The
PF-12Plus is tailor-made for the mobile analysis and is now equipped with more than 100 preprogrammed methods and additional functions. An 860 nm LED enables the nephelometric turbidity measurement in the range of
1-1000 NTU. This feature also allows for the well established NTU-Check during the measurement of our NANOCOLOR® tube tests; a big PLUS in terms of safe measurement results.

The icon-based userguidance and the new task bar turn the PF-12Plus into a user friendly, easy and intuitively operated photometer for all scope of applications in water and waste water analysis. The delivery is carried out in a robust case, equipped with helpful accessories, allowing for an analysis directly at the point of interest. Numerous versions of our VISOCOLOR® and NANOCOLOR® reagent cases are also available with the new PF-12Plus.
