Accurate monitoring of greenhouse gases just got easier
The next generation SpectronusTM maintains all of the original unit’s capabilities and functionality – accurately measuring:
- carbon dioxide (CO2)
- methane (CH4)
- nitrous oxide (N2O)
- carbon monoxide (CO)
- CO2 delta carbon 13 isotope (δ13C)
- CO2 delta oxygen 18 isotope (δ18O).
A major difference is that the former large housing unit has been replaced by two smaller and lighter-weight portable boxes that fit onto a standard 19-inch instrument rack. Various rack mount cabinet options can be ordered if you need the instrument to be self-contained or moved around on wheels.
Another significant improvement is lower power consumption. Whereas the previous SpectronusTM had a built-in cooling system, the new model does not require a cooler as a core component.
Removing the cooler means that the Spectronus™ analyser is lighter in weight, quieter and requires less power to run. It can operate easily in a lab that has a stable temperature. If the Spectronus™ needs to run in a very hot, very cold or rapidly fluctuating temperature environment, then an optional heater/cooler module is also available.
“In addition to the reduced weight and 19-inch rack installation, the major benefit of the evolved SpectronusTM is the user-friendly, intuitive interface,” commented Grant Kassell, Acoem Engineering, Research & Development Manager.
“The instrument software has been enhanced, making it even more reliable and fully compatible with Windows 10, plus language support has been integrated, allowing non-English speakers to operate it with confidence,” he added.
Simplified Chinese is currently available with additional languages to come. The new interface retains the full power of the existing research-level operations, with a simplified optional overlay for the less expert user. This means a wider range of organisations can access valuable data without excessive training or upskilling.
