The NIC EMP-2 is designed for measuring gaseous mercury in work environments. It is compact, light-weight, battery-powered and can be carried virtually anywhere. The EMP-2 has sensitivity limits down to 0.1 ug/m3. Measured data is automatically acquired and recorded into a built in data-logger and can be retrieved via PC for data processing. A rechargeable battery can be easily swapped out for external charging. Upgrades allow for versatility into other mercury analysis applications.
