Analytical Spectral Devices Introduces Faster Scanning FieldSpec® HandHeld Pro Spectroradiometer

Analytical Spectral Devices Introduces Faster Scanning FieldSpec® HandHeld Pro Spectroradiometer
April 24, 2003

Analytical Spectral Devices, Inc. (ASD), a leading developer of field-portable spectroradiometers for the remote sensing industry, introduces the addition of FieldSpec® HandHeld Pro to its FieldSpec® family of spectroradiometers.

The highly portable FieldSpec HandHeld Pro weighs a mere 2.7 pounds. The instrument functions on a 512-channel, photo-diode array spectroradiometer covering the 325-1075 nm region, and offers spectral resolution of 3.5 nm at 700 nm. Most notably is its increased scanning speed. The HandHeld Pro scans three times faster than the FieldSpec® HandHeld. Operated by RS3 (pronounced "RS cubed"), the most powerful data acquisition and analysis software available for remote sensing, the HandHeld Pro is ideal for applications ranging from remote sensing, precision agriculture and forestry to industrial light measurement, and mining.

The HandHeld Pro measures 22 x 15 x 18 cm and runs on a standard lithium ion rechargeable battery pack. ASD's FieldSpec® UV/Vis/NIR spectroradiometers are laboratory-accurate instruments that allow users to make direct material identifications in the field rather than having to collect samples for later laboratory analysis. The portability and easy set-up of these instruments makes it easier to move from site to site and collect more data in a shorter period of time.
