Polispec Grain Spectrophotometers

The Polispec range of spectrophotometers manufactured by ITPhotonics have an industrial design and are available with different ranges of wavelengths selected dependent upon the application.

Principle of operation

Using state of the art diode array technology the principle of operation is based on the interaction of a light source with the molecules and with the chemical bonds that characterize the matrix to be analyzed, thus allowing Polispec to perform both quantitative and qualitative measurements.

Design Philosophy

All Polispec instruments are unique because of the direct relationship between the measurement optics and the spectrograph analysis module, this feature enables us to have a system compact in shape and the robustness required for the industrial environments they are expected to perform in.

Quality

Polispec devices have been designed to operate in various types of environments and provide stable, accurate and reliable results even in the harshest of conditions. The analyser can be provided in various package types with different IP ratings based on the application environment.

Software Innovation

The range of Polyspec in line and portable spectrophotometers come with a complete range of innovative software solutions that allow the instruments to be used in multiple contexts, both as portable systems and as tools integrated in the process. In addition to the availability of some pre-calibrated versions, we also provide software packages for management of the calibration curves so the client is able to create their own algorithms.

Ready to use applications

ITPhotonics have been engaged in the development of “ready to use” solutions
for the Grain and Oilseed sectors since the company’s inception.

We are able to offer Polispec systems for off line and portable as well as installation directly on processing machines and systems, complete with accessories, software and a wide choice of calibration models.

The Polispec line is designed for use in processes in which immediate and precise measurements are required for the management of variables and for process control.

The system can be provided with mounting adapters, control buttons, WiFi communication,
rechargeable battery. There is also a rugged 10 inch touchscreen tablet PC running the poliDATA software with ready-to-use calibration curves (the curves are subject to an annual license for their use).

Thanks to all this, Polispec NIR is the best range of instruments designed for applications in the field, in farm and where rapid real time measurements and precise answers are required.
