Compact Spectrometer for Field Use


Spectral Evolution says its SM-3500 full range spectrometer is designed to enhance collection and analysis of in-the-field mineral data, from early exploration/mineral identification to analysis for extraction and production.

With a full spectral range (UV/VIS/NIR) from 350-2,500 nm, users can identify mineral groups such as Al(OH), sulphates, Si(OH), Fe(OH), Mg(OH), carbonate minerals, silicates, zeolites, rare earths and massive sulphides. Unit capabilities include full range UV/VIS/NIR in one scan; very fast scanning, with autoshutter, autoexposure and auto-dark correction; compact design that weighs less than 8 lb (3.6 kg) and has no moving parts; and DARWin SP data acquisition software that produces ASCII-compatible files without post-processing for use with third-party software including SpecMIN, TSG, IOGAS and GRAMS. Other features include a USGS mineral reference library included with DARWin, capability to work with laptop or Getac PS-236 Personal Digital Assistant (PDA), available mineral contact probe and benchtop mineral reflectance probe and a wide range of field accessories, including fold-up cart for core shack use.
