C3 Upgrade

By Tony Musall

Your PDA- or PLC-controlled C3 unit can be upgraded to PC-control with enhanced features.

 

Full Front shot

 


 

Existing owners of older model C3s can upgrade their unit to the latest revision (C3/C.I.) which includes the C3 Corrosivity IndexTM. Your C3 will be retrofitted with a dedicated laptop running MS Windows and updated C3 software. Thus, data and test parameter entry are simplified, with minimal training requirements. The test progress and test result graphics are clearly displayed on the large color screen. Test results are stored in simple text data logs and can be easily accessed: USB port; WiFi; Bluetooth.

 

The upgraded C3 will calculate and display the C3 Corrosivity Index (C.I.) for the completed test and the C.I. limit for the test. The C.I. is an indicator of the cleanliness of a test site analyzed by the C3. The index is calculated by dividing the maximum current during the test by the elapsed time of the test. The index provides a single test result value that can be plotted over time to track trending in product cleanliness – the lower the C.I. the less likely a tested product site will suffer performance problems due to the presence of a detrimental ionic residue.
