Cambridge, UK, 28th September 2010: Analytik are delighted to announce UK and Ireland launch of the new FieldSpec HandHeld 2 portable spectroradiometer from ASD Inc., for remote sensing research, oceanography and environmental science.
The HandHeld 2 is the latest in compact remote sensing technology from ASD using cutting-edge, near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy to instantly and non-destructively make material measurements. Self-contained data collection with significant spectrum storage capacity and an on-board colour display facilitate more efficient field work by eliminating the need to be continuously connected to a computer.
Other enhancements include ergonomically designed controls, laser targeting, standard AA battery power and a rugged enclosure to ensure durability and easy transport.
“Building on the company’s excellence in portable NIR, the HandHeld 2 brings fast, laboratory-grade spectroscopy to field research,” said ASD CEO David Rzasa. “Well-thought out enhancements, like laser targeting and onboard data collection, make this instrument a top choice for field researchers and scientists across the world.”
The FieldSpec HandHeld 2 provides the performance required for a broad range of applications with a wavelength range of 325-1075 nm, accuracy of +/- 1.0 nm, 3 nm resolution, standard 25° field-of-view, proprietary DriftLock™ compensation for dark current and fast scan times. The unit weighs less than three pounds, measures 215x140x90 mm, and uses four rechargeable or standard AA batteries. The HandHeld 2 comes standard with a Pelican case that meets FAA requirements for carry-on baggage.
