BaySpec has released its ultra-compact F2 SuperGamut NIR Spectral Engine.
The SuperGamut series offer low power consumption, no moving parts, ruggedised performance, and are ideal for such applications as: process automation technology (PAT), petrochemical facilities, pharmaceuticals, food processing, agricultural feed monitoring, semiconductor wafer monitoring, pulp and paper monitoring, beverage and breweries, cosmetics, counterfeit goods detection, water quality, medical diagnostics, and many others.
The SuperGamut Series employ a highly efficient Volume Phase Grating (VPG) as the spectral dispersion element and an ultra sensitive InGaAs array detector as the detection element, thereby providing high-speed parallel processing and continuous spectrum measurements. As an input, the device uses a fibre optic input or slit optics arrangement based on customers’ preferences. The signal is spectrally dispersed with the VPG, and the diffracted field is focused onto an InGaAs array detector. The control electronics read out the processed digital signal to extract required information. Both the raw data and the processed data are available to the host.
Key features include: real-time spectral data acquisition with fast milli-sec response time for raw data, ultra compact package of 88 x 110 x 39 mm3, hermetically sealed spectral engine ensures highly reliable operation, wide -10 to +60°C temperature range and high humidity, covers wavelength range from 800 to 2,500nm, operates in high +85 per cent relative humidity environments and customisable with different fibre optic probes.
