Greater flexibility, mobility and ease of use
The next generation Spectronus, maintains all of the original instrument’s capabilities and functionality – accurately measuring:
- Carbon dioxide (CO2) and its stable isotopes (δ13C and δ18O),
- Methane (CH4),
- Nitrous oxide (N2O), and
- Carbon monoxide (CO).
The former housing unit has been replaced by two smaller and lighter-weight portable boxes that fit onto a 19-inch instrument rack. Various rack mount cabinet options can be ordered if the instrument needs to be self-contained or moved around on wheels.
While the previous Spectronus 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, while it can operate easily in a temperature-stabilized lab, is lighter in weight, quieter in operation, and requires less power to run. For operating the Spectronus in more challenging environments, an optional heater/cooler module is also available.
The evolved Spectronus intuitive interface includes a simplified optional overlay for the less expert user. This means a wider range of organizations can access valuable data without excessive training or upskilling. Enhanced instrument software makes it more reliable and fully compatible with Windows 10, plus language support allows non-English speakers to operate it with confidence. Simplified Chinese is currently available with additional languages to come.
“With one integrated software system, one set of calibrations, ease of operation and a competitive total cost of ownership, the next generation Spectronus is a game changer for those seeking to undertake measurements for compliance, policy decision making or research purposes,” said Jošt.
“We look forward to introducing the next generation Spectronus to participants and visitors at AGU 2022.”
