FAQ

General:

What’s the usage model of NeoSpectra ?

NeoSpectra spectral sensors are built to be integrated in a wide variety of application areas. The input port is a standard FCPC connector, and the output port is a standard mini-USB connector. The output data consists of the spectrum of the light coupled in its input connector.

Since each application requires unique sampling and analysis techniques, the NeoSpectra has been designed to make the integration into your unique environment an easy process.

Default sampling setup is offered in evaluation kits. You can choose to build your own setup, if needed. Spectral analysis algorithms can be integrated in the SDK to generate the useful information for the end-use application out of the measured spectrum.

How to know if NeoSpectra fits my application?

The wide spectral ranges provided by NeoSpectra promises the ability to detect the important absorption peaks commonly sought in conventional NIR spectrometers. So, one can expect that NeoSpectra can analyze the same materials as conventional NIR spectrometers.

Certainly, there are more parameters affecting the fit of NeoSpectra in your unique application e.g. sensitivity, resolution, sampling method, spectral analysis algorithms …etc. The more you know about your applications’ requirements, the better you can judge its fit by comparing the requirements with the performance parameters provided in the datasheet. Si-Ware can give you its initial assessment about the fit of current and future generations of NeoSpectra to your unique application after filling the requirements form.

The evaluation kits will help you to make fit validation tests. You can learn more information about evaluation kits here , and you can request for quote for evaluation kits by filling the inquiry form.

Technical:

Can NeoSpectra spectral sensors operate in other spectral ranges ?

The current generation has 3 configurations with wide NIR spectral ranges (1,250 – 1,700 nm & 1,300 – 2,100 nm & 1,350 – 2,500 nm).

Si-Ware Systems validated the ability of its technology to support operation in lower wavelength ranges (UV & Vis) as well as higher wavelength range (MIR). Developments in system optimization to operate in these range are ongoing to be incorporated in future generations of NeoSpectra.

For more information, please contact Si-Ware Systems.

Do NeoSpectra spectral sensors require He-Ne laser system for wavelength calibration ?

Not at all. Capitalizing on the innovative capacitive sensing technique used to position the moving mirror, the system has an internal wavelength calibration technique that can be triggered with simple software instructions.
