Multiple Mode Calorimetry

MMC 274 Nexus®


The MMC 274 Nexus® consists of two parts: the base unit with electronics and the exchangeable calorimeter module. This guarantees maximum flexibility.

Exchangeable calorimeter modules are available for different applications.


The Accelerating Rate Calorimeter (ARC®) module can be used for standard process safety work. The External heater module can be employed for more sophisticated measurements. The HT Coin Cell Module can be used to characterize coin cell as a whole.


Key Features:


  • Multiple testing modes in one instrument for wide application coverage

    • Scanning mode (constant power, constant heating rate)

    • Isothermal mode

    • Adiabatic mode with Heat-Wait-Search for process safety tests


  • Exchangeable calorimeter modules in one table-top instrument

    • ARC module for safety testing

    • External sample heater module for scanning tests as with DSC

    • HT Coin Cell Module for coin cell characterization


  • Wide temperature range up to 500°C


  • Wide pressure range up to 100 bar (10 MPa)


  • Various sample containers of different materials and volumes


  • Proteus® software for the evaluation of onset, peak, area, etc., which may be combined with other thermoanalytical data in one plot
