4300 Handheld FTIR

The lightweight, ergonomic 4300 Handheld FTIR spectrometer from Agilent Technologies enables the direct identification and assessment of high-value materials without sample extraction, making handheld FTIR a true non-destructive testing solution for use in composites, coatings, polymers, mining and other environmental and material applications.

Key features:

  • Ergonomic design – at 5 pounds (2.2 kg), the 4300 is comfortable to hold and use, making it perfect fit for mobile measurements
  • Superior performance – optimised electronics and an ultra-short internal optical path yield better spectral data
  • Real-time measurements – Agilent MicroLab Mobile Measurement software was created and enhanced for portable and handheld spectrometers. Its real-time spectral display complements the rapid scanning capability of the 4300 MCT system
  • Rapid scanning – the enhanced speed of measurement obtained with the 4300 detectors, combined with the rapid response software and the 4300’s optimised ergonomics, make the analysis of numerous locations on a surface fast and easy
  • Flexibility – interchangeable, snap-on interfaces require no alignment, and are custom engineered to match optics and electronics
  • Control – an integrated touch screen operates all system and data acquisition functions and tilts for easy viewing in ambient light

Description

4300 Handheld FTIR

The lightweight, ergonomic 4300 Handheld FTIR spectrometer enables the direct identification and assessment of high-value materials without sample extraction, making handheld FTIR a true non-destructive testing solution for use in composites, coatings, polymers, mining and other environmental and material application.

The 4300 Handheld FTIR enables you to take measurements wherever they are needed – regardless of the physical size or location of the object. It delivers immediate, real-time results to help you make informed decisions about factors such as quality control, surface contamination, and which samples require further testing.

Key features:

  • Remarkable comfort: at 5 pounds (2.2 kg), the 4300 is comfortable to hold and use, making it perfect fit for mobile measurements
  • Superior performance: optimised electronics and an ultra-short internal optical path yield better spectral data
  • Real-time measurements: Agilent MicroLab Mobile Measurement software was created and enhanced for portable and handheld spectrometers. Its real-time spectral display complements the rapid scanning capability of the 4300 MCT system
  • The right detector for your application: for routine analysis, the DGTS detector delivers broad spectral coverage. The thermoelectrically cooled MCT detector is best for applications that require high performance and speed
  • Rapid scanning: the enhanced speed of measurement obtained with the 4300 detectors, combined with the rapid response software and the 4300’s optimised ergonomics, make the analysis of numerous locations on a surface fast and easy
  • Flexibility for every method: interchangeable, snap-on interfaces require no alignment, and are custom engineered to match optics and electronics.
  • Control at your fingertips: an integrated touch screen operates all system and data acquisition functions and tilts for easy viewing in ambient light
  • Longer periods of continuous operation: the lithium ion batteries that power the 4300 can easily be swapped while the system is running
