Stat App Meets Industrial Cleanliness Requirements

Designed to meet the cleanliness requirements of modern industry, the CIX100 cleanliness inspector is a turnkey system for counting, analyzing and classifying micron-sized contaminants down to 2.5 µm. The company has released the second version of the system’s software, OLYMPUS v1.2 software that extends compliance with those requirements.


Features of the updated application include intuitive workflows and step-by-step user guidance, smart report tools using predefined templates that comply with industry standards, functionality for evaluating trends in contaminant data over time, and the ability to view data captured during multiple tests to identify and monitor trends. Users can enter date ranges, lot numbers, and other search criteria and then display the data in table or graph form to look for trends. The data can be easily downloaded to MS Excel software or exported as a .csv or .dfq file.
