Analytical Spectral Devices, Inc. Releases LabSpec® 5000 / 5100 series, the Enhanced Portable and Compact Vis/NIR Spectrometer for Extreme Spectroscopy
September 11, 2006

Analytical Spectral Devices, Inc. (ASD) manufacturer of rapid, precision, analytical and quality control instruments introduces the new ultra-rugged LabSpec® 5000 / 5100 series, with integrated light source, the latest in truly portable post-dispersive spectrometers.

The LabSpec® 5000 / 5100 series incorporates the benchmark power of the award winning LabSpec® Pro’s broad spectral range (350-2500 nm) and combines it with Ethernet and optional wireless functionality, a more ruggedized package with non-slip, urethane end-caps, and expanded temperature operating parameters for reliability even in extreme environments. In addition to the ASD Indico™ Pro software, the LabSpec® 5000 / 5100 series includes a streamlined compatibility with LabVIEW® software for autonomous control of the spectrometer. The new series also offers enhanced remote diagnostics, embedded Remote Trigger port, and the new NIR Cooled InGaAs TurboScanner™ technology from ASD. LabSpec® 5100 is the higher resolution version of the series.

The LabSpec® 5000 / 5100 series is a rapid, hybrid post-dispersive system with high sensitivity and extremely low stray-light for more robust qualitative and quantitative applications. The standard SMA 905 fiber optic connectors and ASD’s wide array of sampling accessories offer maximum flexibility, making LabSpec® 5000 and 5100 spectrometers incredibly powerful tools for a wide range of requirements. ASD’s spectrometers are ideally suited to a growing list of applications for solids, powders, slurries, and liquids in many forms, for a variety of markets addressing raw and in-process materials all the way through finished product.
