Chem 500

Chem 500 is portable handheld raman analyser, utilising the 1030 nm laser. The suppressed fluorescence means minimal pre-processing and superior SNR, thus faster testing times with less laser energy dumped into sample. The result is statistically better material ID with reduced risk of sample ignition and improved operator safety.

Chem 500 includes the most widely used decision support software, HazmasterG3. The instrument operates on the Android platform and therefore runs HazmasterG3 as an on-board App. Data from the chemical detector is transferred seamlessly into the software, without need for external tablets, PCs, and no wires, no cables, no WiFi or Bluetooth communications.

The spectrometer features continuous and preset adjustable laser focus, that eliminates the most common error whereby the laser is focused on the sample holder rather than the sample material itself. The Chem 500 offers two vial sizes – the standard 15 ml and smaller 8 ml vials – in one vial holder. The 8 ml vials need less sample, often a benefit when analysing explosives.

Key Features:

  • Large, Vibrant 5.5? color touch screen display
  • Powered by Surefire 123A or Li-ion batteries
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS on-board (can be hardware disabled)
  • IR Status indicator for night and clandestine operations
  • Meets IP67 & Mil Spec 810g standards
