MCS 600 - Spectrometer Cassettes

  • Introduction

    Different industrial requirements and applications necessitate a variety of spectroscopic designs. We offer a wide selection of spectrometer cassettes equipped with a blend of both proven and newly developed technologies. Specifically in the NIR region, new polychromators with extended wavelength ranges are now available with coverage up to 2.2 ┬Ám. An integrated processor for performance monitoring and control has been included in the design of MCS 600 series spectrometers. Enhanced signal-to-noise ratio, wavelength repeatability and linearity, combined with minimal drift, are only some of the outstanding properties of these modules. Excellent resolution and repeatability for process monitoring is the hallmark of all ZEISS spectrometers. With state-of-the-art electronic components and optimized heat dissipation, the spectrometer cooling unit functions with high stability and efficiency. Spectrometer cassettes are available in two classes of thermoelectrically (TE) controlled housings.
