BaySpec has released its ultra-compact F2 SuperGamut NIR Spectral Engine. The device is available at AMS Technologies.
The SuperGamut series offer low power consumption and no moving parts for ruggedised performance. The product is ideal for applications such as petrochemical facilities, pharmaceuticals, food processing, agricultural feed monitoring, pulp and paper monitoring, beverage and breweries, cosmetics, counterfeit goods detection, water quality, medical diagnostics, process automation technology (PAT), semiconductor wafer monitoring 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.
