Design of Karl Fischer Moisture Virtual Analyzer Based on LABVIEW and MCU


Article Preview

Karl Fischer moisture analysis method is regard as the best way to determine the water content of the substance, which is widely used in industry of petrochemical, food, cosmetic and so on. In order to improve the maneuverability of the method, reducing the costs and improve work efficiency, this paper presents a Karl Fischer moisture virtual analyzer (KFMVA) system, which using STC11F32XE MCU as the core of the system, combined with PC by the LABVIEW serial communication module, realized the data collection, processing, display, storage and print capabilities.
