Boulder, Colo., March 1, 2006 — Analytical Spectral Devices, Inc. (ASD) manufacturer of rapid, precision, analytical and quality control instruments introduces the new ultra-rugged LabSpec® 2500 / 2600 series, the latest in truly portable post-dispersive spectrometers. The LabSpec® 2500 / 2600 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® 2500 / 2600 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® 2600 is the higher resolution version of the series.
The LabSpec® 2500 / 2600 Series is a rapid, non-destructive, post-dispersive style system with 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® 2500 and 2600 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.
Founded in 1990, Analytical Spectral Devices manufactures cost-effective, precision, transportable and field-portable, laboratory-quality Vis/NIR spectrometers, spectroradiometers, spectrophotometers and corresponding software and accessories. ASD’s instruments perform well in a range of environmental conditions, in and outside the laboratory, and have applications in pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, analytical chemistry, mining, grain, food and dairy, remote sensing, pulp and paper industries world-wide.
