The MMC 274 Nexus available from NETZSCH is a multiple module calorimeter and includes two parts: the base unit with built-in electronics and the exchangeable calorimeter module. This configuration ensures maximum flexibility.

A number of exchangeable calorimeter modules are available for different applications. The external heater and VariPhi modules can be used for more advanced measurements; the Accelerating Rate Calorimeter (ARC) module can be employed for standard process safety work; and the HT Coin Cell Module - MMC 274 Nexus HT Coin Cell Module can be utilized to characterize coin cell as a whole.

Key Features

The main features of the MMC 274 Nexus are:

  • Exchangeable calorimeter modules in one table-top instrument
    • VariPhi module for fire exposure tests, specific heat, endothermal effects
    • External sample heater module for scanning tests as with DSC
    • ARC module for safety testing
  • Multiple testing modes in one instrument for wide application coverage
    • Isothermal mode
    • Scanning mode (constant power, constant heating rate)
    • Adiabatic mode with Heat-Wait-Search for process safety tests
  • Wide pressure range up to 100 bar (10 MPa)
  • Wide temperature range up to 500°C
  • Numerous sample containers of different materials and volumes
  • Proteus software for the evaluation of peak, onset, area, etc., which may be coupled with other thermoanalytical data in one plot


The applications of the MMC 274 Nexus are:

  • Chemical processing industries
