Lancom 4 and Probe PR for IE8Ametek Land, an industrial combustion efficiency and environmental pollution emissions monitoring specialist, has announced a number of enhancements to its Lancom 4 Portable Gas Analyser to improve usability and provide attractive features as standard.

Now available as a free download, Lancom 4’s data acquisition software, Insight, is a tool that allows users to interface their analyser with a PC for remote control and data logging. Insight offers graphing and analysis tools for data visualisation and reporting purposes, providing even easier access to data.  Communications between Insight and the user’s PC requires a USB-RS232 interface converter, which is now supplied with every Lancom 4 for quick and easy set-up.

In addition, Lancom 4 now includes Wake and Sleep functions, allowing measurements and data logs to be recorded over an extended period, and a rugged Carry Case, ensuring that the instrument is protected at all times when in use. All are now supplied as standard at no extra charge.

Upgrading to Lancom 4 also has been made much easier. Hardware items, such as external printers or analogue output modules, can be simply plugged in, with no firmware configuration needed. This means that these items can be fitted in the field, avoiding the need to return the instrument to the factory.

Derek Stuart, global CE product manager for Ametek Land, said: “We are continually innovating within our ranges to ensure that we can deliver the most advanced features and software to our customers. Our aim is to provide even greater access to the most-accurate information to make gas data analysis as comprehensive as possible.”

Lancom 4 is renowned as the world’s most versatile and accurate portable flue gas analyser for checking or testing a boiler system or pollutant process. It has the capability to monitor up to nine different gases, a total of 17 measurement parameters with one instrument, as well as the ability to data log up to 250,000 records.

Widely used across industries including gas CHP (Combined Heat and Power) plants, utilities, cement kilns, glass, paper mills, pipelines and refineries, the Lancom 4 is known for its convenience and ease of use. The user simply switches on the analyser, allows it to complete an automatic zero calibration, and it is ready for use.

Lancom 4 has fully built-in data capture and storage of measurement data, plus a USB connection to download the data to a PC, along with free-to-download Insight data acquisition and analysis software for on-site record keeping, analysis and reporting.

Extremely compact and portable, the Lancom 4 weighs only 6kg and can easily be carried around a plant, even allowing trouble-free access to remote locations via ladders or gantry work. It is also highly robust and suitable for daily use in harsh industrial environments.
