NIRONE Sensor Evaluation Kit

Thank you for purchasing a NIRONE Sensor Evaluation Kit (EVK). This guide contains all the information you will need to use your NIRONE Sensor EVK.

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 offers excellent performance fully comparable to the best laboratory instruments in a small package and only a fraction of the cost.

The NIRONE Evaluation Kit provides a good starting point for technology evaluation and application studies. The Evaluation Kit includes:

  • NIRONE Sensor
  • NIRONE Reflectance optics
  • NIRONE SMA connector
  • A USB interface board
  • A USB cable
  • Reference target
  • The sensor can be controlled through a PC by using our user-friendly SensorControl software.

Safety Instructions


When you make measurements, ensure that the sample completely covers the NIRONE Sensor light source. The lamp can emit light near the infrared range. Risk of dazzling.


The sensor may warm up during long uninterrupted use. Do not touch the sensor during long periods of use. Never use the sensor EVK without its front optics.


The sensor EVK contains a lens made of glass. This glass can break, if the device is dropped on a hard surface or receives a substantial impact. If the glass breaks, do not touch the glass parts or attempt to remove the broken glass from the device. Stop using the device until the glass is replaced by qualified service personnel. Please contact a distributor or dealer.


The intended use of NIRONE Sensor is to measure spectra from various surfaces. Do not use the device for anything other than its intended use.


Your device and its accessories are not toys. They may contain small parts. Keep them out of reach of children.
