    Come to m-u-t and let us together develop an optical tool based on m-u-t’s available in-house technologies, which can fully serve your measurement needs. Our goal is work with our customers to help them more efficiently service their markets and open the doors to new markets. Your success is our success when you can improve product quality, reduce waste, and optimize resource management using an m-u-t measurement solution. m-u-t manufactures optical measurement products for a variety of applications. From a measurement of wavelength dependent R/T characteristics of coatings on substrates such as glass, plastic foils or metal sheets, parameters such as film thickness (10nm-50µm), moisture concentration, sheet resistance, color and index of refraction can be determined.

    A partial pressure measurement of gases such as oxygen (O2), carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), acetylene (C2H2), ethylene (C2H4) and ethane (C2H6), as well as a simultaneous determination of temperature and moisture content, are all extremely valuable for process control. A spectral analysis of liquids and solids can be used to determine the proper dosage as well as allowing for an evaluation on whether all the correct ingredients are found in the sample.

    Come to m-u-t with your measurement inquiries. We will accompany you from the start of a product concept design, through the development phase, all the way to mass production of your product.

      • Diamond-electrodestechnology

      • Diamond-electrodes-technology for water purification
        „No water – no future“ those were the words of UN general secretary Koofi Annan
        addressing the fight for the most important resource. About 2 billion people have no
        access to clean drinking water worldwide and each year about 5 million people die from
        contaminated drinking water. The supply of clean water in sufficient amounts and quality
        is probably the biggest challenge of the 21st century.
        In cooperation with Condias, m-u-t developed a system for purification and disinfection
        of wastewater. The device is based on the diamond-electrode-technology from Condias.
        The measurement and control technology as well as the system integration is provided by
        m-u-t.
         

      • Process Control On UV Lamp

      • For fast UV lamp drying processes in CD & DVD production and drying of dyestuffs and
        colors in the printing industry, it is important that the light source has the right intensity at
        the correct wavelength. Otherwise either the process takes too long or the material is not
        completely consolidated. Since these light sources change the emitted radiation during
        their lifetime, constant inspection is necessary.
        The given task
        The lamps need to be inspected for intensity and wavelength distribution. As soon as they
        are altered, the intensity needs to be increased. If this does not help, the lamp needs to be
        replaced. A device for permanent inspection of each lamp is necessary. The process may
        not be prolonged by the inspection or by replacing the UV lamps too early.
         

      • Optical Tracer Identification

      • Mass-produced fluids can not carry their brand like solid products or those filled into small
        bottles or cans. They are usually stored and transported in huge universal tanks and they are
        essentially similar to the competitor’s product or to illegal imports from uncertified manufacturers.
        The brand owners and the authorities lose a lot of money every day worldwide.
        The given task
        In order to protect the national gasoline market against illegal imports or mixing of the
        original gas with illegally produced gas, a complete solution for branding and identifying of
        the gasoline needs to be developed. m-u-t has developed a solution, that is easy to handle
        and as a mobile testing unit it fits into the luggage compartment of a car. Adulteration as
        well as counterfeiting can be detected.
         

      • High Voltage Modules (HV-Modules)

      • The high voltage modules (HV-modules) made by m-u-t are designed for driving Avalanche photodiodes, photomultipliers, laserdiodes, piezo actors and similar products, which require operating voltages up to 3 kV.

        High precision Output voltage control

        Depending on the selected high voltage modules (HV-module), the output voltage can be adjusted from 50 V to 3 kV (either positive or negative). With the short circuit resistant output voltage monitor, the output voltage can be controlled within limits of ± 0.1%. This high stability of the output voltage ensures precise operation of the connected devices.



         

      • IR Multi-Gas Sensor NDIR Module

      • Infrared multi gas sensors are based on the principle of non-dispersive infrared spectroscopy (NDIR). The multi gas sensor uses light of a specific wavelength in the infrared range to illuminate the sample depending on the type of gas to be analyzed. It measures the absorption of light when crossing the sample chamber and indicates the concentration of the gas in the sample chamber. A chemical reaction does not take place in the process, so our multi gas sensors have a long service life and remain stable over the long term.

        The measurement of up to three gases in a single sensor considerably reduces cross-sensitivities (which are otherwise commonplace) not only by adeptly selecting the IR wavelengths, but also via algorithmic incorporation of all measurement channels. Three gases can be combined freely depending on the requirements. CO carbon monoxide, CO2 carbon dioxide, CH4 methane, C2H2 acetylene, C2H4 ethylene or C2H6 ethane are available right now.

        The measurement precisions that can be achieved depend on the respective gas combination and the measurement ranges, and can be optimized for the application at hand by suitable calibration.

      • QSP in the industrial production process

      • QSP1) is capable of detecting bacteria and toxins – qualitatively as well as quantitatively, very fast and with a low detection threshold.

        Continuous quality control in the industrial production process has established itself firmly by now. For the determination of some measures, the plant operator has to cope with a long time offset.

        When sending probes to laboratories a time offset of days or even weeks happens until the relevant results have been received and thus can allow for drawing conclusions about the status of the production process. QSP is an alternative allowing for determining the relevant parameters by analyzing in one’s own quality assurance group or even online in the process. Just the way you are used to with the other parameters in your process.

      • Photonic Solutions

      • Since the foundation of m-u-t in 1995, we have developed optical measurement systems that cover the wavelength range from UV-VIS-NIR-LWIR. Photonics -- as this field is often called -- stems from the combination of the word ‚photon’ (meaning ‚light quantum’) and the latin suffix –ic (meaning ‚having some characteristics of’). At m-u-t, photonics is synonymous with the field of optoelectronics.

        The numerous applications of photonics can be divided up into four general fields:

        Lighting and displays
        Industrial process and quality control
        Information and communication
        Life sciences (including biophotonics)
        Our customer specific development products are normally covered by confidentiality clauses.

        •    QSP in the agricultural and environmental technology

        • QSP1) is capable of detecting bacteria and toxins – qualitatively as well as quantitatively, very fast and with a low detection threshold.

          Industrial production of foods has brought a lot of good. However, it also contains risk. With ever increasing quantities meeting quality levels especially for bacteria and toxins becomes still more important. Smallest quantities of bacteria or toxins can destroy huge charges of foods or primary products. At the earliest possible time contamination or other quality issues need to be detected in order to prevent further processing or mixing with non-contaminated goods.

          The detection of contamination has displayed until now a large challenge. Up to now, this could only be realized by time-consuming and expensive laboratory tests. m-u-t presents the patented QSP procedure and thus has developed a possibility to detected contamination like bacteria (legionella), viruses, toxins, etc. in liquids or gases within a very short time frame. The procedure is suitable for at-line as well as automated on-line measurement in industrial processes.

          If you are facing a measurement task where QSP might be suitable, do not hesitate to contact us. We are specialized on application-specific solutions of measurement tasks jointly with you.

          • EARLY FIRE DETECTION

            • ARTUS early fire detection combines video surveillance, temperature measurement, alarm and extinguishing in a single application.
            • ARTUS early fire detection checks the monitored area automatically and continuously, monitoring set temperature limits and temperature trends.
            • ARTUS early fire detection detects potential hazards up to 1 Kelvin (K) exactly and initiates custom actions: e.g. sends message to central fire alarm system, pre-alignment with fire monitor, starts extinguishing,...
            • ARTUS early fire detection is modular and durably designed to be able to adapt to the respective customer requirements.
              • Early fire detection technology with infrared detection

              • Early fire detection with LWIR thermography measures the surface temperature of the property being monitored so it can detect the increase of heat long before a critical temperature is reached. Early fire detection based on this principle has crucial system advantages over all other detector technologies:

                Visualisation of the temperature increase
                Invisible LWIR radiation is made visible by using calibrated microbolometer technology. Each radiation value has a temperature value and a colour associated with it. In this way, the surface temperature distribution becomes visible and can be captured with a view to its immediate assessment.

                Non-contact measurement over long distances
                LWIR thermal image-based early fire detection can be used over several hundred meters. Every pixel of the sensor corresponds to a temperature of the observed image. Using this information, the unit can be used to identify potential sources of fire and fire prevention measures.
                 

              • Reference facility: Hagenholz waste incineration plant

              • The ERZ Entsorgung + Recycling Zürich waste incineration plant specialises in the recycling of household waste and the consequent extraction of heat and energy. It has been operating since 1969 and went through a comprehensive overhaul in 2003. A part of the project was the extension of the waste bunker, in which the waste material is stored until it is used, and the corresponding modernisation of the fire protection equipment in the waste bunker. A requirement was to be able to see, use and monitor all fire protection systems on one control system. In addition, the aim was to also save costs with a coordinated fire protection system: because fires are identified sooner, they do less damage. Also, the fire brigade is called out less frequently. With this scope, m-u-t equipped the facility in 2006 with a new ARTUS LWIR fire detection system. The bunker extension measuring 100m in length, 18m in width and 32 m in height was the same size as a 10-storey block of flats. For observing the large, elongated interstitial spaces, four independent ARTUS thermal imaging cameras were coupled together. All relevant data and alarms converge on an individually configurable information monitor and in the central control room on its large-scale video wall.

              • Appliction examples of early fire detection

              • An outstanding feature of LWIR systems is their excellent suitability for a wide range of applications and fire classes. Conventional detectors monitor the products of a fire, such as gas, flames or smoke, which can vary greatly depending on the class of fire. These detectors are expected to specify which type of anticipated fire they are for. LWIR surveillance, however, monitors the cause of every fire: unusual heat development. That makes this technology universally deployable, regardless of the type of overheating expected. ARTUS systems can also be used to monitor other temperature-sensitive processes, such as the monitoring of refrigeration equipment.


                 

              • VdS 3189 - Guidelines for IR-camera units for temperature monitoring in fire protection, design and installation

              • The ARTUS product is developed according to VdS 3189 guidelines and also complies with VdS 3189 when installed at your site.

                The objective of this directive is:

                ‘Due to on-site and operational special characteristics, in addition to a fire detection system according to VdS 2095 or DIN VDE 0833-2, you may want to use IR camera units, especially for the temperature control of surfaces. Therefore, early stage temperature anomalies, such as temperature gradient in the IR camera unit’s surveillance area, can be responded to.

                 

              • Early fire detection in explosion protection zones 1,2,21 and 22

              • ATEX certification of the ARTUS-Ex protective housing covers numerous infrared camera models, allowing more flexible solutions for temperature monitoring in explosion protection areas.

                The explosive-protective housing of ARTUS-Ex allows for use in hazardous areas and meets the latest explosion protection standards for installation in explosion-endangered zones 1,2,21 and 22. The certification covers not only the protective housing itself, but also all components such as the infrared camera, heating, and interface controller. An additional certification, as would otherwise be required for the use of the components referred to above, is therefore no longer required by the installer/operator.

                This makes the ARTUS-Ex protective housing an indispensable monitoring unit for early fire detection systems, or for condition monitoring of industrial plants with potentially explosive atmospheres.

              • Early fire detection with infrared detection and cooling/extinguishing function

              • The basic ARTUS early fire detection module detects a potential hazard. This optional module extension determines the precise location information of embers and can respond in a targeted manner. The process is simply stored on the ‘extinguishing process’ server. The ‘extinguishing process’ server is designed for various fire monitor (water cannon) manufacturers. Tell us the name of your fire monitor manufacturer and we’ll make sure to perfectly integrate it.

                Even standard extinguishing systems such as sprinkler systems can be triggered precisely, section by section.
