UniPol L – Routine QC Analysis

The UniPol L is Schmidt+Haensch’s entry level instrument but still offers full compliance with all industry bodies regarding polarimetry. A versatile instrument that uses the same technology as the Unipol L1000 and provides exceptional stability and value.

All UniPol polarimeters use high-grade LED light sources as in the Polartronic series.

UniPol L

The UniPol series of digital polarimeters differ from conventional, circle polarimeters by using an innovative ‘scanning’ measurement which derives the angle of rotation from a shift in waveforms observed by a detector. This in itself has a number of benefits; no optical encoder is required and therefore no moving parts, reducing complexity and cost. As the detector ‘scans’ the full 360 degree range, linearity is guaranteed and does not require regular calibration.

All UniPol polarimeters use high-grade LED light sources as in the Polartronic series.

As a result the UniPol series polarimeters are competitive with any other polarimeter on the market despite being Schmidt+Haensch’s economic model.
