LED Indicator – Operating status is at a glance

LED Indicator of 47cm length is mounted in a front of the table. The LED indicator shows the operating status by different colors, luminous patterns and levels of brightness. You can select a color of LED Indicator from 7 colors and light-off, level of brightness (3 levels) and luminous pattern (lighting, slow blinking, fast blinking, fading : 4 patterns) for each status (stop, acceleration, running at set speed, deceleration, vacuum holding, in economy mode, acceleration in Zonal mode, deceleration in Zonal mode, Alert status). So operating status is at a glance with the LED Indicator now.

  •  Actual color of LED Indicator may be different from the photos on this website due to display condition.

Touch-sensitive LCD panel with ineligible screen design

The control panel, 6.5-inch size touch-sensitive color LCD panel, is located in a front part of the machine. You do not need to stretch your arm to operate the centrifuge.
The intelligible screen designs, such as a wide indication of basic parameters, many icons for selecting function, folder colors with each symbol for program management, offers user-friendly operation, like operating a smart phone, to all users.

Multilingual Display

You can select a language from 11 languages, English, German, French, Spanish, Italy, Portuguese, Dutch, Russian, Chinese (simplified), Korean and Japanese.

Low table height with smooth sliding door for easy loading / unloading the rotor

The table height of the CP-NX is 863mm. The low table height enables users to load / unload the rotor easier. The rotor is automatically locked by the centrifugal force once the rotation is started by the “self-locking rotor system”. So it is not necessary to fix the rotor by screwing the rotor onto the drive shaft or push the button to lock/unlock the rotor any more. In addition, the improved door structure design based on the latest structure analysis technology made the door thickness 5 mm thinner than the one of our former model. The lighter door offers the same safety as the before and makes door-sliding movement (back and forth) smoother than before.

Automatic Rotor Life Management System

Total run times and total accumulated operating hours are managed automatically by the system. The RLM sensor of the ultracentrifuge reads the latest information of total nun times and total accumulated operating hours from the RLM adapter during the acceleration and the latest information of total run times and total accumulated operating hours are recorded in the RLM memory assembled on the rotor during the deceleration.

Rotor life is maximized

Automatic Rotor Life Management systems tracks the rotor usage precisely in the nearest of 0.1 time and 0.1 hours means, the rotor life is extended as much as 10 times longer than as conventional calculation. (by manual recording to the rotor log book)

Visual Balancing by non-contact imbalance sensor

Do you still adjust balance between sample tubes using scale or balance before the centrifugation? himac ultracentrifuge model CP-NX series offers visual balancing with max. 5mm sample surface difference between the sample tubes*1. (*1: except P21A2 rotor)
The visual balancing was realized by the non-contact imbalance sensor which monitors oscillation of the drive shaft during the rotation. Imbalance alarm criteria were optimized based on the characteristics of each rotor, so that system offers bigger imbalance tolerance. Of course, the sensor activates the imbalance alarm and stops rotation immediately in case the abnormal oscillation is detected.

Economy Mode * for energy saving

The stand-by electricity consumption is reduced max. 50%**, compared with our former model, by deeming the backlight of the LCD, stopping cooling fans, stopping cooling system and so on, if the control panels is not touched over the set period (setting range : 1 -180 mins).

 The mode works while drive unit and vacuum pump are stopped

* under in-house test condition

Operating History : Max. 5,120 logs

Max. 5,120 operating logs can be recorded in the system automatically. You can export the data according to a user and/or rotor in CSV format through USB port.

Programmed Operation : 1,000 programs

You can register up to 1,000 programs for programmed operation to the system. Folder is used to manage the registered programs.You can select folder’s color from 4 colors paired with a character for easy identification of the registered program.

User Lockout (standard function)

Operator can be registered to the system with 3-level access level (Administrator, Supervisor, User). Operational functions can be limited by the access level. You can register up to 50 users. Password should be entered to log-in the system.

Tube Sealer model STF3

The STF3 is heat-welding tube sealer to use the seal tubes with fixed angle rotors, swinging bucket rotors, vertical rotors and neo angle rotors.

New Line-up Seal Tubes with ” xg Boost System “

In addition to the current himac ultracentrifuge seal tubes, new seal tubes were line-up. This time they can use at the rotor’s maximum RCF because the tube position locates at the maximum radius of the rotor cavities. Expanding the range of seal tubes widens the rotor’s availability, too.

  •  Small volume tubes can use at the rotor’s maximum RCF
  •  Compared with the same volume tubes, new seal tubes K factors are smaller and take less centrifugation time
  •  Sealing performance prevents from sample leakage
  • To use these new lineup seal tubes, float spacer, space cap, tube rack and STF3 tube sealer are required.
