Measuring a Sample

This section describes how to measure a sample on the NIRONE Device.

Note:

Do not keep the USB cable attached to the device while making measurements.

Proceed as follows:

  1. Switch on the device by pressing the ON/OFF button for five seconds.

    The measurement parameters are:

    • Lamp intensityLamp intensity defines how brightly the light source radiates. By default, the light source is off.

    • AveragingAveraging indicates how many times a single wavelength is sampled, before moving on to the next wavelength point.

    • StepsSteps defines the size of step to moving to the next wavelength point. Possible values in this application are 1, 2, 5 and 10.

  5. Start the scan by pressing the Scan button on the device, or by selecting SCAN on the mobile application.
  6. Wait until the scan is over.

    The spinner is rotated in the mobile application, during the scan operation.

    When the scan operation is over, the mobile application requests the result from the device, and displays the chart of the measured spectrum in the mobile application.

  7. Examine the results in the mobile application.

    The minimum and maximum values on the chart are based on the measured minimum and maximum values.
