Control Development Inc. has introduced a portable spectroscopy system that is fully integrated in a lunch-box-style computer. Spectral coverage is available from 180 to 2200 nm, and silicon and InGaAs arrays provide spectra in milliseconds. The systems have permanent wavelength calibration and can be preconfigured to be network- and server-ready. Compatible light sources and fiber optic probes for laboratory and process environments are available. Free Windows-based acquisition software is included with every system.
