SPECTRAL EVOLUTION Will Be Exhibiting at IUFRO 2014, October 5-11, in Salt Lake City, Utah at Booth #1223

Come see the PSR-3500 Platinum and other SPECTRAL EVOLUTION spectroradiometers designed for forest research projects.

Lawrence, MA – The IUFRO World Congress in Salt Lake City from October 5-11 provides an excellent opportunity for forest research organizations to see the latest technological developments for forest operations, forest engineering, biology, ecology, wildlife management, aquatic restoration, and more.

SPECTRAL EVOLUTION will be demonstrating their newest field portable spectroradiometers for forest research in Booth #1223. These systems are widely used in forest canopy studies, forest health measurements, research on invasive species and insects, biomass research, climate studies, species identification and more.

In the booth, the focus will be on the latest high resolution field spectroradiometer, the PSR-3500 Platinum. The PSR-3500 Platinum offers:

• Highest resolution field portable spectroradiometer available

• Stand-alone operation mode with no computer controller required

• Internal memory storage for up to 1,000 scans

• Best-in-class signal-to-noise sensitivity

• Compact size: 8.5" x 11.5" x 3.25" (21.5cm x 29cm x 8cm)

• Fits inside an airline approved carry-on Pelican case

• Lightweight: 7.3 lbs (3.3kg) with battery

• Operating temperature range from -10° to 40° C

• One touch operation with auto-shutter, auto-exposure, and auto-dark current correction before each scan with no manual optimization step required

• Superior in-field reliability with no moving optical components

• Lightweight, easy-to-use contact probe, pistol grip, and leaf clip accessories

• Rugged, optional handheld PDA microcomputer that provides a sunlight readable screen, digital photos, audio notes, GPS and altitude for each scan

• DARWin SP Data Acquisition software that comes standard with every SPECTRAL EVOLUTION spectrometer and spectroradiometer, and is easy to use and stores your scans and metadata as ASCII files for use with third party programs

DARWin SP software also offers access to more than 19 vegetation indices for use in forestry applications via simple pull-down menus from the main screen.
