Shimadzu Photodiode Array SPD-M20A LC Detector

Shimadzu Photodiode Array SPD-M20A LC Detector

General-purpose model

The SPD-M20A is a general-purpose model incorporating a deuterium lamp. The light-source compensation function achieves a noise level of 0.6×10-5AU. Cell temperature control ensures baseline stability.

Key Benefits:

  • Noise level of 0.6×10-5 AU
  • Superior Linearity - 2.0AU
  • Ethernet interface & web control functions
  • Can be incorporated into non-Shimadzu HPLC systems
  • Light source: Deuterium (D2) lamp, tungsten (W) lamp
  • Wavelength range: 190 to 800 nm
  • Wavelength accuracy: 1 nm max.
  • Wavelength precision: 0.1 nm max
  • Cell temperature control range: 5°C above room temperatre to 50°C
  • Operating temperature 4°C to 35°C
  • Power requirements: 100 VAC, 150 VA, 50/60 Hz

The SPD-M20A PDA is the third member of the UV-Vis absorbance detectors. The M20A, like the others, offers the world’s best noise and linearity specifi cation in its class. It also includes a temperature-controlled fl ow cell and the ability to have both lamps lit simultaneously. The Prominence PDA offers you more power to get more done by offering two slit widths: 1.2 nm for high resolution work and 8 nm for quantitative runs. Shimadzu software is used to perform spectral library searches for compound identification and peak purity determinations. Four analog output channels provide multi-wavelength detector functionality and are available for triggering fraction collection or other devices, or collecting chromatographic data into any other software package. Self-diagnostic features such as wavelength accuracy and wavelength calibration ensure compliance with regulatory requirements. The Prominence PDA offers a user-friendly design that includes front-panel access to detector lamps and fl ow cell,easy connection through a standard ethernet terminal, and front-panel illumination of the detector’s status. The Shimadzu SPD-M20A truly establishes a new standard for today’s PDA detectors.
