NIRQuest512-2.2 uses a high-stability, 512-element Hamamatsu Indium Gallium Arsenide (InGaAs)-array detector in a compact optical bench with two-stage thermoelectric cooler and low-noise electronics. Depending on the configuration – six grating options and five sizes of optical bench entrance slits are available – optical resolution of ~0.5 nm-5.0 nm (FWHM) is possible. Higher-resolution setups are especially useful for characterizing lasers.

External hardware triggering functions allow users to capture data when an external event occurs, or to trigger an event after data acquisition. This capability can be especially useful for capturing data from automated processes or from devices such as solar simulators that flash synchronously.

The SpectraSuite Operating Software used by the spectrometer is a modular, Java-based spectroscopy platform that operates in Windows, Mac OS and Linux operating systems. In addition, NIRQuest512-2.2 can be bundled with the Remora Network Adapter from Ocean Optics to turn the system into a multi-user spectral data server over Ethernet or your existing Wi-Fi connection.

With the addition of the NIRQuest512-2.2, Ocean Optics now offers NIR spectrometer options with spectral response from 900-1700 nm, 900-2050 nm, 900-2200 nm and 900-2500 nm. Multiple grating, optical bench and accessory options make it possible to configure a NIRQuest system for a variety of applications in medical diagnostics, food and beverage monitoring, pharmaceuticals analysis, environmental monitoring, process control and more.

Crowcon’s New LIBRA Battery Makes its Triple Plus+ Gas Detectors Even More Versatile

Crowcon’s new LIBRA (Lithium ion Battery Replacement Assembly) battery is now available for use with all existing and new-build Triple Plus+ (TRP+) and Triple Plus +IR (TRP+IR) gas detectors. This makes the detectors even more versatile and dependable, with extended lifetime and charge cycles.

LIBRA is more than just a Lithium ion (Li-ion) battery. It contains a microprocessor and circuitry to mimic the previous Lead Acid battery pack – this means users can simply replace on their Lead Acid battery pack with a LIBRA without needing to do any modifications to their TRP+/TRP+IR or change the charger, even though the battery technologies are generations apart. LIBRA also provides power for 20-30 minutes after low battery warning, allowing users to complete their task and to replace the battery.

Core to the development was the need to offer existing users a solution compliant to their existing operating procedures. For example, there is no impact on the requirement to see the minimum operating voltage of 6.3V.

At the same time Crowcon has introduced a more forceful low battery alarm indication, based on customer feedback, demonstrating the company’s commitment to supporting the many tens of thousands of TRP+/TRP+IR users in the field. This improvement is available as standard in all new-builds (after November 2009) and also in the form of a service replaceable Eprom upgrade.

Li-ion batteries have a number of advantages over competing technologies. Firstly, they are generally lighter than Lead Acid equivalent batteries; secondly, they provide much more energy than Lead Acid batteries; thirdly, Li-ion batteries hold their charge (even on the shelf) and can be more effectively controlled by electronics; finally, they have no ‘memory effect’ and so can be recharged at any time without losing any overall life or cycle time – this means increased lifetime and charge cycles.

Assuming a five day working week, a 48 week year and a gas detector being charged overnight after every working day, the battery will experience 240 charging cycles per year. Under these conditions LIBRA guarantees a full two years of charge cycles without any reduction in run time. At the end of the following 240 charge cycles, a 25% reduction in run time may be experienced. LIBRA therefore offers, at the very minimum, three years of reliable use, assuming extreme recharging patterns. This time will be extended if the battery is not used completely or not charged as frequently.

Because Lead Acid batteries are declining in popularity due to their negative environmental impact, LIBRA Li-ion batteries are also more environmentally friendly than alternatives.

Crowcon’s TRP+/TRP+IR detectors have been industry favourites worldwide due to their robust construction and reliability. Using the most advanced technologies they have always proven themselves as ‘fit for purpose’ in the field.

Ocean Optics Announces Advanced Spectral Shaping Technology

Signal-balancing technique is scaleable to large-volume spectrometer

Ocean Optics (www.OceanOptics.com), the industry leader in miniature photonics, has developed a proprietary light shaping technique for its spectrometers that balances and smoothes the uneven spectral emission from UV-Vis light sources used for spectroscopy applications. As a result, users can measure light more evenly across a broader spectral region and thus improve signal-to-noise performance. The technique is especially useful for spectral absorbance applications where strong absorbing bands coexist with bands of low signal in the unbalanced spectrum. This low signal level limits the maximum measurable optical density.

(Photo caption: Ocean Optics’ spectral shaping technology is applied to a miniature spectrometer optical design to balance the uneven spectral emission from UV-Vis light sources used for spectroscopy applications).

Traditionally, the spiky spectral output of a lamp – i.e., distinguished by sharp and narrow peaks – of light sources used in spectroscopy is handled at the source itself. But methods such as using mechanical fixtures or optical filters at the light source can result in greater light loss and may be too expensive or impractical, especially when instrument to instrument uniformity is desired. The patented and proprietary Ocean Optics spectral shaping technique modifies the light internal to the spectrometer so that specific wavelengths or wavelength bands are selectively attenuated. This makes it easier to optimize the spectrometer setup in concert with the light source.

The Ocean Optics OEM Engineering Team is now able to apply this novel spectral shaping technique to a variety of OEM applications. This dedicated engineering group provides expert support to help OEM customers bring products to market faster and better optimized to commercial requirements. The team offers complete system design capability for OEMs from supply of fiber assemblies and light sources to sensor coatings and sample holders. The company is ISO 9001:2008 certified and can support both integrated system and sub-system manufacturing needs. Additional information is available at www.OceanOEM.com .

Riester’s ri- thermo® N Infrared Thermometer Measures Temperatures in Seconds

The new ri- thermo® N from Riester is an ergonomic, infrared thermometer for use in medical practices, hospitals and the home. Clinically validated, its innovative infrared technology not only allows ri- thermo® N to measure the body temperature of children and adults in a matter of seconds, but also the temperature of surfaces, rooms and bathwater between the range of 0-100°C.

Using acoustic signals, the ri- thermo® N will indicate when it is ready to measure, when it has completed a reading, detected a fever or has encountered a fault. Results are shown on a large, backlit LCD display. The device stores the last 12 readings in its memory so values can be compared and temperature curves plotted to monitor patients’ progress over time.

As an energy saving feature, ri- thermo® N will automatically power off one minute after the last reading. A long life battery is supplied along with a hygienic storage container and probe covers. The use of probe covers is essential to receive accurate readings.

Riester also offers a wall mounted version of ri-thermo® N with the added benefits of neat storage and easier attachment of probe covers.
