FTIR Rocket OEM module

Manufacturer's part number :


Manufacturer ARCoptix


Description :

The ARCoptix FTIR Rocket OEM modules have been developed for system integrators looking for a custom FTIR measurement design. The modular solution consists of essentially 3 elements:

  • Interferometer module
  • Detector module
  • Light source module

  • Depending of the application (gas measurement, transmission, ATR or fibred) an additional sampling system (like a White gas cell for example) must be included in the optical path of the system in between the interferometer and the detector module. The modules are easily fixed on a breadboard for prototyping, and they are compatible with standard 30mm cage system (eg from Thorlabs or Linos). A software development kit with examples in C, Labview and Matlab - is also provided.

    Thanks to its solid state reference laser and its sealed, self-compensated interferometer, the FTIR Rocket OEM module has low sensitivity to temperature fluctuations and vibrations. The detector module is optimized for sensitivity thanks to its TE-cooled MCT detector.

    These units are also available with an embedded microprocessor with built-in digital signal processor, running a stand-alone OS. Reliable computer interfacing is made via Ethernet using a TCP/IP protocol or USB. With battery power, the FTIR module can be used as portable stand-alone system.

    Beside the standard features, our engineering team will be glad to help you with the customisation of the system.
