Digital DT 950 Series Dissolution Tester

Our first digital dissolution tester

Overview

The ERWEKA DT 950 Series is our first digital dissolution tester on the market, equipped with the most advanced technology for the requirements of today and the challenges of tomorrow.

With state-of-the-art embedded PC technology, the DT 950 is the first of its kind. The 7" touch display with a modern user interface focuses the user on the most important task the DT 950 has to fulfill - 100% USP/EP/JP compliant dissolution testing, without distractions and errors. For this purpose, we have designed the ERWEKA TestAssist, an intelligent helper that guides the user step by step through the configuration of the dissolution test, provides assistance and makes sure that only compliant parameters can be entered.

In addition to the modern user interface, the DT 950 is completely future-proof. With our „Upgrade your DT“ programme, it can be upgraded at a later date - e.g. from 6 up to 8 test stations, with an automatic tablet drop or an automatic sampling station, if the DT 950 is to be upgraded to a dissolution system at a later date. A switch form low-head to high-head mode is also easily possible at all times. Thanks to the advanced embedded system, software functions for the touch display can also be added later.

With all these innovations, however, we have not lost sight of the most important thing: The DT 950 Series are 100% USP/EP compliant.

Key Features

Embedded-PC Technology, Modern User Interface and Upgradeability

  • The digital embedded PC technology offers all advantages and unlimited possibilities of modern software programming making the DT 950 is more future-proof than ever before. In the first step, this means simple network printing and a modern user interface. In the future, the DT 950 Series will be expanded with additional functions and can thus constantly adapt to the user‘s requirements and future industry 4.0 developments.

  • The new, modern user interface of the DT 950 focuses the user on the most important function of the DT 950 - dissolution testing.

    • TestAssist, the intelligent guide for dissolution testing
    • DirectHelp, help directly on the screen with the tap of a button
    • Multilanguage operation in English, French, Spanish, Russian, Chinese and German.
  • The newly developed hardware of the DT 950 Series enables step by step upgradeability from a manual dissolution tester to a semi-automatic Online-, Offline- or On-/Offline system.

    • Upgrade up to 8 test stations
    • Optional, automatic tablet drop
    • ASS-9 automatic sampling station

Network Printing explained

Network printing explained

DT 950 can print to LAN network or USB printers

The technology platform of the DT 950 allows convenient use of network printers from many different manufacturers. Thanks to a practical printer setup, the LAN-connected DT 950 finds all printers in the network. Then all that remains is to select the right driver from a list and the DT 950 prints via the selected printer without any problems.

The DT 950 can currently print on network and USB printers from Hewlett-Packard, Kyocera and OKI. The DT 950 also supports USB printers from Brother. More printers coming soon.

The DT 950 Series Touch Interface

Dt950 Ui

The touch interface of the DT 950 focuses the user on the most important task to be done with the DT 950: dissolution testing. The central part is the TestAssist, an intelligent assistant with realtime feasability checks that provides support and guarantees the conformity of the entered parameters according to USP/EP/JP. Dissolution testing thus becomes simple and safe.

But we didn‘t stop at TestAssist - all other functions, such as the control panel, the qualification menu or the service menu, are also designed to connect user and hardware as quickly as possible.

Dissolution Testing in 3 simple steps

TestAssist - dissolution testing easier than ever!

TestAssist is a comprehensive, yet simple wizard for the quick execution of dissolution tests. The user is guided step by step through the parameterisation, whereby incorrect entries are prevented by TestAssist. As soon as the dissolution test is running, the test screen displays all important status information about the test at any time.

Thanks to the large status animation, you can check from anywhere in the lab at a glance whether the test is running within the tolerances: green - all ok, or red - error, something went wrong.

With the help of the intelligent TestAssist, dissolution testing is as easy and fast as ever!


Help, at any time

Help, at any time

Each input field has a quickly accessible help function. Are you unsure what to enter in a field? Then just tap on the question mark right next to it and you will get help. This help function is distributed throughout the ERWEKA OS so that you can obtain information at any time.

Dt950 Side Low

Our world is turning faster and faster - this is why we designed a dissolution tester that is ready today for the challenges of tomorrow. The DT 950 can be upgraded even after the initial purchase - even from 6 to 7 or 8 test stations, with an automatic tablet drop or an automatic sampling station. The high degree of modularity means that, for example, a 6-station stand-alone DT 956 can be transformed into the heart of a complete dissolution HPLC On-/Offline system with 8 test stations and Disso.NET 4 software within a very short time. This means that the DT 950 remains flexible throughout its entire instrument cycle - because who knows now what challenges we will be facing in a few years?

Further improved!

Not only on a large scale, but also on a smaller one.

New on/off switch with improved 24 Volts power supply

The power switch has been moved to the side of the unit. This makes it much easier to reach and operate. Furthermore, the power supply has been redesigned to 24V.

Improved, automatic tablet drop

The tablet drop has been relocated to the upper side of the DT head. This means that the filling can always be seen immediately. The tablet drop can optionally be controlled automatically.

Further improvements on the DT head

The DT head has been further improved. In addition to mechanical changes to the guide and a new aluminium lock, the weight has been reduced. This makes the dissolution tester head easier to handle without losing its robustness.

New water outlet

The water outlet has been lowered further and also moved to the back. This way it does not interfere during normal use of the dissolution tester. In addition, the outlet has been equipped with a practical quick coupling that allows a hose to be connected quickly and without leaks.
