HazmatID Elite Handheld FT-IR Chemical Identifier

HazmatID Elite Handheld FT-IR Chemical Identifier is a next-generation handheld unknown solid and liquid chemical identifier that combines high performance with simplicity and performs an analysis in 1 minute or less. Using Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, HazMatID Elite is capable of identifying chemical warfare agents, explosives, toxic industrial chemicals, narcotics, suspicious powders, among other dangerous chemical classes.

Analysis is performed by placing a smallamount of unknown substance onto the diamond ATR sensor and applying pressure with an integrated press for solid samples. The sample interface also includes an integrated well for the containment of liquid samples. A second, touch-to-sample, diamond ATR interface is available for rapid analysis of pooled liquids and surface films, and enables robotics applications.

MIL-STD-810G certified for operation in harsh conditions, HazMatID Elite has the widest thermal and solar operational range of any portable or handheld chemical identifier. Its revolutionary optical engine also provides high vibration immunity and resistance to mechanical disturbances seen during vehicle or human transport.

The HazMatID Elite user interface contains a large display screen with a high viewing angle and visibility in direct sunlight conditions, large keypad controls for effective operation in protective gear, and an intuitive software workflow design. On-screen instructional graphics guide users through the essential operations of the device to maximise ease-of-use and reduce the training burden for security personnel.

Long-range, embedded RF wireless transmission is also included for rapid communication of data out of the hot zone to aid in information integration, decision making, and connection to ReachBackID 24/7/365 support services. PC-based command software provides advanced data handling capabilities for specialised users.
