CM Series of Contaminometers.

CM Series of Contaminometers.

Gen3 Systems Limited, a specialist British manufacturer and distributor, announces that it was awarded a 2015 Global Technology Award in the category of Best Product – Europe for its CM Series of Contaminometers™. The award was presented to the company during a Tuesday, Nov. 10, 2015 ceremony that took place at the Messe München exhibition center in Munich, Germany during Productronica.

Controlling the production process against unwanted levels of damaging ionic contaminants has recently benefitted from a new, faster and more accurate test method that will shortly become a new International Standard for which this new test instrument has been specially developed.

Graham Naisbitt, Managing Director of Gen3, commented, “I am delighted that we have, for the second consecutive time, won this prestigious European Product of the Year, this time with our Contaminometer. In continuous production for more than 40 years, it represents the most advance instrument of its type that, uniquely, is able to deliver a Go / No Go answer within less than 3 minutes. This provides a significant benefit to the production engineer being able to know that his production process is under control using, fast, effective and accurate test data.”

The CM Contaminometer range from Gen3 Systems utilises a solid gold test-cell, ballistic amplifiers and vigorous pumping systems to ensure superior measurement precision, even at very low conductivity values. PC based software is used to produce graphical test data, a pass/fail analysis and automatic hard copy print out using test methods according to the prevailing standards. The NEW CM range includes the following: CM11+, CM22+, CM33+, CM33L+, CM60 and CMBBT+.

In addition to the CM Series, Gen3 also manufactures Dip and Spray Coating Systems, MUST3 Solderability Testers, SIR and CAF Testing Systems. The company distributes products for ACE, Finetech, Hirox, Vacunest, Optilia, Stoelting, MEK and MBTech.

Premiering in 2005, the Global Technology Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
