A range of accessories are available to enhance your set up. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss any of the options further.

Futura Probe Tester

The Aber Instruments Probe Tester has been specially designed to carry out checks on the integrity of ABER FUTURA 12mm probe and 25mm probe, which includes the new FUTURA pico probe. The Probe Tester will automatically run through a sequence of tests checking a probe for internal corrosion and leakage between the electrodes. An additional test cable allows the user to check the continuity between each electrode and the Head Amplifier socket. The complete test procedure checks the health of a probe and its ability to perform correctly. The Probe Tester has an LCD display that allows the user to quantify and track the changes of a probe condition.

Signal Simulators

The Aber signal simulator, as the name suggests, simulates a capacitance and conductivity measurement, and is used to perform a functional test on the FUTURA.

Futura Extension Cables

The ABER FUTURA inline and bulkhead extension cables are available in standard lengths from 5 meters.

Futura V350 Touch Screens

The V350 modules are ideal when a local interface is required close to the bioreactor. The operator can input Futura settings and monitor process values locally.

  • Futura V350 Wall Mount: Connects to any single Futura option and is programmable for different applications.
  • Futura V350 Panel Mount: V350 Touch Panel Mount PLC with 3.5” TFT touch screen
