NIRONE Device User Manual

Thank you for purchasing a NIRONE Device. This guide contains all the information you will need to use your NIRONE Device.

Spectral Engines’ NIRONE Sensors use patented Micro Electro Mechanical System (MEMS) Fabry-Perot Interferometer enabling fast and reliable measurements even in the most demanding environments. NIRONE Sensors work at the true near infrared (NIR) spectral range from 1350 to 2150 nm which means better sensitivity and specificity in material sensing applications. NIRONE Sensors offer excellent performance fully comparable to the best laboratory instruments in a small package and only a fraction of the cost.

The package includes:

  • NIRONE Device
  • USB-C cable
  • White Reference Target
  • The Device can be controlled through a PC by using our user-friendly SensorControl software.
  • A mobile phone application

Safety Instructions
