In the field and in the lab
The standard built-in, robust high-performance battery with charge regulator allows continuous operation at 220V (110V) and up to 3000 on-site mains-independent measurements. The battery charge status is shown in the graphic display. In the power saving mode, the photometer switches off automatically after 10, 20… 120 min.
