Scan-Logos::can is the only firm in the world that has given its heart and soul to online water quality measurement. Since our foundation 15 years ago, nothing else has come out of our development department, nothing else has come out of our production sites.

Today s::can’s product range covers an absolutely state of the art measuring instrument for each individual parameter for typical applications in the areas of water, waste water, environmental monitoring, and industrial applications. Whether it is a simple pH sensor or a complex spectral probe, s::can measuring instruments are intelligent and compatible with each other in s::can systems and with third-party systems.

Organically developed, constantly tried and tested, and often proven: Optical works best. It doesn‘t matter whether it is COD, TOC, N03, N02, TSS, turbidity, dissolved oxygen, or many others besides. Whenever an optical method is available, we use it; when not, we develop one. Optical methods are the most reliable, the simplest, have the lowest cost, and, above all, they are usually the most accurate. If ever a measurement is impossible by optical methods, then we just use the best alternative method that comes closest to our focus.

We are proud of having set new standards in water monitoring along the way. For example, in 2000 when we brought our first spectro::lyser™ to the market we established online UV spectrometry in sensor format in the marketplace years ahead of the competition. Today, with about 5000 systems sold, we are the undisputed global market leader in this segment and can continue to call ourselves the technological leader.

Spectrometer probes

All s::can spectrometer probes operate using the same measuring principle: Spectrometry. The spectrometer probes are the first and only instruments in the world that can measure optical spectra from 190 to 720 nm directly in liquid media. The substances contained in the medium weaken a light beam emitted by a lamp that moves through the liquid. After contact with the medium its intensity is measured by a detector over a range of wavelengths specific to the application. No detailed knowledge of the chemical and physical basics of measuring is required.

i::scan

i::scan – the new miniature multi-parameter spectrophotometer probe will revolutionize online water quality monitoring: From very cost sensitive applications down to highly resolved “Smart Water Grids”, in small unmanned plants, or even in single building protection. The new i::scan combines the high performance of a multi wavelength spectrophotometer with even lower costs than simple photometers!

Ion selective probes

All s::can ISE probes are ion-selective multi-parameter probes that can measure multiple water quality parameters continuously (on-line) and directly in the water without the need for complex and maintenance intensive sample pre-treatment.

All s::can ISE probes can be operated according to the „plug & measure“principle. With a simple plug connection, which provides power supply and data communication? The s::can sensors are connected to an s::can terminal and are ready for use. All s::can ISE probes are pre-calibrated ex works.

Electrochemical sensor

s::can sensors can be operated according to the „plug & measure“ principle. With a simple plug connection providing power supply and data communication, the s::can sensors are connected to an s::can terminal and are ready for use. All s::can sensors are pre-calibrated ex works and do not require any conditioning – all can be used continuously (on-line) and directly in the water (in situ). The „plug & measure“principle avoids complex installation procedures on site and thus does not only save time during initial operation, but also reduces avoidable errors.

Terminals and Software

With the con::cube, s::can has established a standard for industrial process control terminals. Via a large color display and a touch panel it allows menu-driven, user-friendly communication with all s::can sensors and basically any other digital (RS485) or 4-20 mA sensor of different make, as well as the operation of distributed systems, either via telephone, radio, GSM, or GPRS telemetry: all available in one terminal. The “con::lyte”is a compact terminal for less demanding applications and smaller budgets.

con::cube

con::cube is a compact, versatile terminal for data acquisition and station control. Newest processor technology and very flexible options for interfacing to SCADA or any central database systems makes the con::cube in combination with moni::tool a powerful terminal for compact station control

con::lyte

The terminal con::lyte displays the readings of all s::can probes & sensors connected on site via backlit LCD. Seven push buttons are available to ensure operation and changing of settings via software. Analog outputs (0/4-20mA), relays to be configured and one sum error relay can be used for integration to PLC systems

Monitoring Stations

The fully modular s::can monitoring stations combine s::can instruments to a compact and versatile system. They present a complete solution, as the user only has to connect water supply and -discharge (“plug & measure”) in order to receive at no extra cost a previously unheard variety of immediately available information and parameters.
