Automatic Polarimeter – AUTOPOL I

The AUTOPOL I is Rudolph’s most economical automatic polarimeter designed for education and less demanding applications where the budget is critical, but quality is still important. The Rudolph Autopol I Automatic Polarimeter is designed for:

  • University – Education
  • Starch Analysis
  • Lactose in Milk
  • Flavors – Fragrances
  • Chemicals
  • Natural Product Research
  • Invert Sugar
  • Vitamins



Autopol I Polarimeter Standard Features:

  • 0.01° Arc Accuracy.
  • 589nm fixed wavelength.
  • Built in thermoprobe for temperature measurement.
  • Windows Embedded 7 for direct connection to the network server and flexible USB Printing.


Optional Features:

  • TempTrol™ Automatic Electronic Heating & Cooling 15° – 40°C ±0.2°
  • AP Accuracy Option: 0.004° Arc Optical Rotation
  • AP Resolution Option: 0.01, 0.001° Arc Selectable.


Quality Components

Rudolph manufactures its entry-level automatic polarimeter with the same high quality optics as its more expensive instruments. While other manufacturers in this price range use Polaroid Plastic Dichroic Sheet Polarizers, Rudolph does not. Instead, Rudolph uses the same high quality Glan Thompson Calcite Polarizers used in its high accuracy models.


Polarimeter Sample Temperature

The Autopol I comes with a Temperature Probe so that sample temperature can be displayed and printed. However, if your product requires Temperature Control, then the Autopol I will most likely not be accurate enough for this type of sample, as is the case for 98% of pharmaceutical applications where a Certificate of Analysis must be issued.


Optional Accessories

The Autopol I is a Single Wavelength Instrument operating at 589nm. The 589nm wavelength is often referred to as the Sodium D-Line. The Autopol I includes a 100mm or 200mm glass sample cell as well as a full range of optional Polarimeter accessories.
