Field Spectroradiometer identifies plant species.

January 21, 2015

Working alone or in combination with hyperspectral or multi-spectral imaging from satellite or airborne sources, PSR+ 3500 provides non-destructive species identification in situ. Portable 350–2,500 nm unit offers auto-shutter, auto-exposure, and auto-dark exposure. Using reflectance measurements, researchers can discriminate between species by examining distinctive absorption features in full spectrum such as moisture content, color variation, and lignin/cellulose values.

Haze/Transmittance Meter delivers measurement precision.

January 12, 2015

Leveraging optics and LED technology, Haze-Gard i simultaneously measures total transmission, haze, and clarity according to ASTM and ISO test methods. Open design of measurement compartment facilitates sample analysis, and sample changing/positioning is unaffected by ambient light. While standard sample holder accommodates films and sheets, sample holders for taber abrasion test and cuvettes for liquids are optional. Operation is facilitated via color touchscreen display as well as footswitch. Read More
