The tecSaaS® (Spectrometer as a Sensor) technology platform incorporates integrated processing capabilities and a real-time operating system. tecSaaS® utilizes a modular firmware design that may be modified to expand its processing capabilities, including evaluation of complex algorithms and chemometric and mathematical models, such as Fast Fourier Transforms (FFT). The addition of tecSaaS® technology to a spectrometer system provides the end user with a complete, self-contained process monitoring system, and mitigates issues such as downtime, insecurity and instability associated with devices employing independent computer controls such as PCs.

MultiSpec® UV-VIS-NIR Spectrometer System is designed for lab and process control.
Based on the versatile 19” chassis design, this cassette based system incorporates a light source and spectrometer module to provide a full system. Broadband light sources include halogen, deuterium-halogen, and Xenon flash lamps. For fluorescence and Raman applications requiring a single-wavelength light source, various LEDs and a 785-nm laser light sources are also available. This UV-VIS-NIR spectrometer system incorporates the high-performance Zeiss spectrometers, which can cover a wide wavelength range between 190 – 2150 nm.

Fast electronic multiplexer technology allows the UV-VIS-NIR version of this instrument to have up to 8 channels that can collect data simultaneously with no moving parts. A new innovation includes a multiplexed NIR version that has 3 to 4 measurement channels and can cover from 1000 – 2150 nm.
Dust and water protected, stainless steel housing with an integrated industrial PC and touchscreen TFT monitor.
This system currently incorporates either an MMS spectrometer module for the UV-VIS-NIR spectral range or a PGS spectrometer modules for the NIR spectral range with either a Xenon flash lamp or a long-life halogen lamp. The UV-VIS-NIR version can cover a variety of spectral ranges between 190 – 1000 nm, while the NIR version can cover from 1000 – 2150 nm. Fast electronic multiplexer technology allows the UV-VIS instrument to have up to 8 channels to collect data simultaneously. One of the channels is often used as a permanent reference to guarantee drift-free operation. Easy connection to fiber-optic immersion probes and flow-through cells allow measurements directly inside pipelines or reaction vessels.
The CompactSpec® II is housed in a IP54 stainless steel housing that protects it from limited dust ingress and water spray from all directions. It contains an integrated computer with a touchscreen monitor for easy control. It can also include hardware that will allow the system to communicate with a Process Interface via digital and analog inputs and outputs.
Each system is equipped with a Vortex cooling unit to allow it to withstand a high temperature environment. To avoid long fibers, a system often must be placed in a production where extra protection is necessary. tec5USA offers a pressurized CompactSpec® II EEx p version is available with ATEX certified Zones 1 (Class 1, Div 1) or 2 (Class 1, div 2) explosion-proof ratings.
