The RS-8800 field spectroradiometer haas a wide range of accessories to enable more sampling options.
Haverhill, MA – December, 2020 – The SPECTRAL EVOLUTION RS-8800 field spectroradiometer works with a wide range of our accessories for in situ measurements for remote sensing applications.
The RS-8800 is uniquely equipped with SPECTRAL EVOLUTION’S Sensaprobe™ grip which features a tilt angle sensor, auto-rangefinder and camera to automatically photograph and record field of view of scanned image displayed on your personal cell phone. This unique capability provides researchers with a convenient way to see exactly what they are measuring.
In addition to the Sensaprobe grip, the RS-8800 can be easily interchanged with other SPECTRAL EVOLUTION accessories for all remote sensing applications, including:
- 10mm and 3mm contact probes
- benchtop probe with a compactor
- premium and standard pistol grips
- FOV lenses
- unique leaf clip
- portable four inch reflectance/transmittance sphere.
The RS-8800 field spectroradiometer is a full range (350-2500nm) high resolution/high sensitivity system including an Internet of Things (IoT) operating system that allows you to operate the system by iPhone, Android device, or tablet.
The RS-8800 uses its IoT operating system to control our accessories so that any user can get consistent scans. The IoT uses a WiFi network accessed by an Android device, iPhone or tablet for controlling the system and downloading data stored on the instrument.
The RS-8800 runs on lithium-ion batteries for a full day of scanning. The instrument is equipped with a custom backpack for field use.
The RS-8800 features:
- 350-2500nm range
- Three photodiode arrays: 512 element silicon detector; 256 element TE-cooled InGaAs detector; 256 element TE-cooled extended InGaAs detector
- Spectral resolution:
- 2.8nm @ 700nm
- 8nm @ 1500nm
- 6nm @ 2100nm
The 3mm Miniprobe allows you to focus on small features of your sample for analysis. The 10mm contact probe provides a broader scan area. The benchtop probe is ideal for measuring powders and crushed samples with a compactor that provides for a flat surface for scanning. These probes are well suited for both vegetation and soil analysis. Our two pistol grips offer stable, ergonomically designed accessories for holding a fiber optic that provide increased comfort in handling and accuracy of measurement. FOV lenses are available in 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10°. Our unique leaf clip includes illumination that keeps heat away from your sample during measurement. The four inch sphere offers reflectance and transmittance measurements in a portable design that you can take into the field.
