The CompactSpec® II spectrometer system is a fast, robust UV-VIS-NIR spectrometer systems in a 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.
