Modular Design – Maximum Flexibility

Ever-accelerating new material developments, triggered by fast-moving mobility and technical trends, require continuous adaptability. The new generation of NETZSCH DSCs is based on a modular concept. The DSC 300 Caliris® is the only instrument of its kind with interchangeable and exchangeable sensor-furnace modules. The Supreme version of the DSC 300 Caliris® allows the exchange of modules, to be able to adapt to current and future needs. 

The DSC 300 Caliris® Supreme – The Future-Proof Choice

This version offers a choice of currently three modules and can be configured to achieve an unrivaled maximum temperature range of -180°C to 750°C. It is possible to update your device at any time to take advantage of the latest technological developments or to change your application. The choice of the module used remains unrestricted. Just choose between broad temperature range, fast heating rates or high sensitivity as needed.

The DSC 300 Caliris® Select – Tailor Made for Your Application

In the Select version of the DSC 300 Caliris®, there is an initial choice between three currently available modules. The maximum temperature range available in the DSC 300 Caliris® Select is -170°C to 650°C. The Select version allows for the exchange of modules of the same type avoiding instrument downtimes. 

Both versions come with integrated color touch display, an LED status bar and can optionally be equipped with an automatic sample changer.


High-Performance Module 
-180°C to 750°C

The premium module impresses with a perfect baseline and outstanding reproducibility. The very small peak-to-peak noise ratio allows the detection even of the smallest peaks – the gold standard for most DSC applications. In combination with the Supreme version, this module covers the entire temperature range from -180°C to 750°C. The H-Module is an ideal complement for advanced materials research and development in both industry and academia.


The Polymer-Module
-170°C to 600°C 

This module is perfect for all tasks in the polymer field. Its optimized low-mass furnace allows for heating rates of up to 500 K/min over a wide measurement range. Temperature profiles approximating real processing conditions can be realized. Additionally, one can speed up the measurements and thus save valuable time. The P-Module is perfect for research and development or quality control in the polymer processing industry.


The Standard Module
 -170°C to 600°C 

The routine module combines high stability and optimized resolution of thermal effects. Laser-guided welding processes for the sensor disks and thermocouple wires yield true sensitivity and robustness. The monolithic DSC sensor features high metrological stability and optimal resolution. The easy to handle S-module is the module of choice for industry and contract laboratories when routine measurements are the main task.

Sensor Guide Light
DSC 300 Caliris® Supreme + UV-Accessory

Investigate Curing Reactions with Photo-Calorimeter.

For investigating Curing (Crosslinking Reactions)Literally translated, the term “crosslinking“ means “cross networking”. In the chemical context, it is used for reactions in which molecules are linked together by introducing covalent bonds and forming three-dimensional networks.curing reactions initiated by irradiation, such as UV or light, the ideal instrument to use is a photo-calorimeter or UV-DSC. The DSC 300 Caliris®, equipped with a UV accessory, is specifically designed for this purpose. In this instrument, the light guides are permanently installed in the moving furnace lid, ensuring immediate readiness for UV measurements. When needed, it is simple to exchange the lid to switch back to conventional DSC measurements, thus covering the entire temperature range.

Recommended light sources:

  • OmniCure®® S 2000: wavelength range 320 nm to 500 nm
  • LX500: wavelengths of 365 nm, 385 nm, 395 nm and 405 nm.
  • However, if desired, other commercial lamps can also be adapted for use.
