LCS Opacimeter

LCS Opacimeter

The LCS has a unique air-knife-system that guarantees stable and reliable measurements while minimizing maintenance. The LCS uses the partial-stream measuring technique, which provides for direct and continuous measurement of the smoke sample. The light source is a pulsed green LED with a peak at 560nm. The detector is a solid state GaAs device and is heated to 43°C to temperature compensate the output signal.
