The Spectrum Rotating Spectrometer system is engineered to place a spectrometer onto a rotating bin blender. A sapphire window in inserted into one corner of the bin top. When the bin is inverted, the powder presses against the sapphire window. NIR spectrometer with large scanning area head collects a spectrum of the powder inside the blender through the window. Every time the bin rotates a gravity switch activates the spectrometer to take a spectrum at the point when the bin is inverted.
The spectrometer communicates with a nearby plant hardened computer using a wireless signal. The spectrometer is powered using long life batteries.
The device is constructed from fully traceable and certified FDA approved materials of construction. Air actuation of the device allows safe use of the Spectrum Probe Holder in ATEX.
