A powerful combination of the compact Flame optical bench and an uncooled InGaAs detector, the Flame-NIR+ is a versatile, affordable instrument for shortwave NIR spectroscopy from 970-1700 nm. With its NIR responsivity and ultra-low power consumption needs, the Flame-NIR+ is an attractive option for integration into handheld and portable systems.
New Features! The Flame-NIR+ has better sensitivity and a wider spectral range (at higher wavelengths) than our original model. This allows users to detect weaker levels of NIR light at lower limits of detection and with shorter integration times. Increased sensitivity is important in diffuse reflectance and other applications, while the extended range (especially between 1650-1700 nm) makes it possible to measure samples comprising C-H hydrocarbons.
The Flame-NIR+ offers all the advantages of the Flame product line, including interchangeable slits and low unit to unit variability. The Flame-NIR+ is an ideal choice for applications including moisture measurement in grain and feed, measurement of fats and oils, detection of hydrocarbons, and pharmaceutical ingredients blending.
