UniSpec-SC Spectral Analysis System

The UniSpec-SC is a single channel (VIS/NIR), portable instrument commonly referred to as a “leaf reflectometer”.  It is an ideal instrument for measurement of lead level reflectance on individual leaves, as well as for use in ecosystem remote sensing applications.  It is truly a self-contained system that does not require a separate PC for operation.

The heart of the UniSpec-SC is a high precision, miniature photodiode array detector that features high sensitivity, repeatability and long term calibration stability.  With a built-in, rechargeable 7.2V Li-Ion battery that provides power to the entire system, the UniSpec-SC will operate continuously for up to 4-6 hours in the field.

The UniSpec-SC also features a tungsten halogen light source, which provides a steady, user-adjustable light source for measurement of leaf level reflectance in the VIS/NIR.  Unlike other remote sensing instruments, the UniSpec-SC features an innovative, ergonomic system console designed specifically for demanding field conditions.  There are also a wide selection of accessories available for use with the UniSpec-SC, including fiber optics, leaf clips, FOV lens, cosine receptor, external battery pack and reference standards.
