HazMatID Elite

HazMatID Elite – Hand-held FT-IR chemical identifier

Feature Highlights

  • Integrated pressure device for analysis of solid materials, plus direct touch-to-sample capability
  • Automated analysis of mixtures with priority alerting for explosives, CWA, TIC and narcotics
  • Long-range, embedded RF wireless transmission
  • MIL-STD-810G Rugged and IP67 for decon

HazMatID Elite

The analysis, which takes less than 1 minute, is performed by placing a small amount of the unknown substance on to 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 the analysis of pooled liquids and surface films, and enables robotic applications.

HazMatID Elite has the widest thermal and solar operational range of any portable chemical identifier. Its revolutionary optical engine also provides high vibration immunity and resistance to mechanical disturbances seen during vehicle or human transportation.

It has intuitive software and a large display screen and keypad controls for ease of operation in protective gear.

PC-based command software provides advanced data-handling capabilities for specialised users.

It is certified to MIL-STD-810G for use in harsh conditions and high temperatures.

Interfaces for sample analysis

The first way to analyze samples is to place a small amount of substance on a diamond crystal and then fix it with a built-in press. The second way is to bring the device to the sample until stable contact is reached between the second diamond crystal and the sample.

Protection class

The impact-resistant, waterproof (IP67) housing allows the HazMatID Elite to be completely immersed in the disinfectant solution.
