NirSpector™ Transportable VIS-NIR Analyzer

The NirSpector™ transportable benchtop VIS-NIR spectrometer is a turn-key system that integrates a near-IR spectrometer, active-trigger probe, light source and computer in a ruggedized device. It employs Volume Phase Gratings (VPG) as the spectral dispersion element, thereby providing high-speed parallel processing and continuous spectrum measurements. The NirSpector covers the wavelength range from 400-1700 nm.
