  • Paired with the ATR-PRO ONE

    For many routine sample analyses the FT/IR-4000 can be paired with the ATR-PRO ONE single bounce ATR with a choice of prisms including a high throughput monolithic diamond, Germanium (ideal for carbon-black samples) or ZnSe. A choice of clamps with pressure up to 10,000 psi ensures the best sample contact with the crystal.

    The newly developed monolithic diamond provides excellent transmission and without any coating or transfer optics has great performance into the far-IR
  • Add a second detector

    For flexible applications a second detector can be added, such as an MCT with automatic exchange (or specify a different beam splitter/detector) for a dedicated system to work in the near-IR or far-IR.
  • Coupled to microscope

    The FT/IR-4000 can be coupled to any of the IRT Series of FTIR microscopes to create a versatile system for both micro and macro FTIR spectroscopy.
  • Software

    The powerful control and analysis software, Spectra Manager™ Suite, is compatible with Windows 7 Pro (32 and 64 bit) and Windows 8.1, providing a customizable user interface for automating routine tasks such as sample identification and quality testing using Quick-Start and QC Compare (with build your own library capability).
  • Free evaluation

    KnowItAll® informatics package is included with 12,000 free spectra for life (HaveItAll 250,000 for free evaluation for three months).

Additional applications can be added, such as chemometrics (PLS, PCR, CLS etc.). The sample measurement screen can be fully customized according to user requirements and each customized screen and parameters can be saved for different users (User Adaptive Software).

Advanced Measurement Screen of Spectra Manager

Sequence
Information such as the instrument status, measurement parameters and the sequence of data acquisition are displayed.

Results Display
Data analysis results such as spectral comparison and sample quantification are displayed and readily available.

Real-Time Monitoring
A real-time data processing function can be used to observe and verify the spectrum during measurements. Spectra stored in thumbnails can also be overlaid with the current spectrum during sample measurements. Self-diagnosis and Validation Self-diagnosis functions allow verification of the current instrument status.

Zoom
Target peak(s) and/or functional groups can be easily checked by a zoom function.

Thumbnail
The measured spectra can be stored as thumbnails within the thumbnail window. The thumbnails can be individually selected and viewed in Spectra view

Real-Time Data Processing

The data collection/processing sequence can be defined to include several data manipulation commands, activated as the spectral data is collected. The final results after all processing commands are completed are displayed as the final spectrum.

FTIR Spectrometers System Features

Interferometer

The interferometer is manufactured as a solid cast aluminum block  and is completely sealed. The FT/IR-4000 uses a 45 deg Michelson interferometer and the FT/IR-6000 uses a 28 degree Michelson interferometer. A near frictionless bearing (without the need for a gas supply) supports the moving mirror which is driven by a ‘voice coil’ for accurate vibration free movement.  Laser tracking of the moving mirror is made using Accutrac™ with the latest in digital signal processing. The standard KRS-5 windows prevent hygroscopic damage often seen with KBr windows used on some products.

Corner-Cube Mirrors

Corner cube mirrors automatically correct for any light path deviation, providing excellent optical stability at all times. Eliminating the need for dynamic alignment.

  • Purgeable Optics

    All models include a fully sealed and desiccated interferometer chamber. In addition, an integrated purge for the optical system is included as standard.
  • Excellent S/N Ratio

    The highly stable interferometer with high intensity two-stage light source   offers optimum signal-to-noise performance starting at 28,000:1 and up to 55,000:1 (under standardized conditions).
  • High Sensitivity Electrically Cooled DLaTGS Detector

    A highly sensitive and stable DLATGS detector is standard for all instruments. The DLATGS detector element is temperature-controlled using the Peltier effect.
  • Additional Detectors

    Many optional detectors cover the range from 25,000 to 5 cm-1 and include several LN2 cooled MCT detectors for wide, narrow and mid band, Other include SiPD, InGaAs, Bolometer, etc.
  • Wavenumber Extension

    The working range can be extended from the visible to far-IR by switching various optical components, such as source, windows, beam splitter and detector.
  • Vibration-Free Optical Bench

    A specially designed vibration-proof mounting of the optical bench completely eliminates interference from external vibrations.
  • GxP Support

    For laboratories compliant with GxP regulations, an instrument validation routine is provided as standard to verify instrument performance compliant with ASTM, EP, and JP procedures.
  • Microscope/IR Imaging

    The IRT-1000, 5000 or 7000 infrared microscope models can be easily interfaced to any FT/IR-4000 or FT/IR-6000 instrument.

With a 28 degree Michelson interferometer and corner-cube mirrors for optical precision and designed for absolute flexibility

  • Nitrogen Purge and Evacuation

    A multi-zone N2 purge system is standard to minimize the interference from environmental gases and vapors on the sample spectrum (CO2 and H20 elimination algorithms are also provided).  The interferometer, sample chamber and detector areas can all be independently evacuated (useful for fast sample loading) to completely eliminate CO2 and H20 for the most sensitive sample measurements and as the moving mirror does not really on an air-bearing the vacuum can easily be maintained. The FT/IR-6000 FTIR spectrometer can also be used in a combination of vacuum and purge for even faster sample turn-around.
  • Emission Ports and Light Introduction

    The FT/IR-6000 has several options for emission port optics with a range of window materials for measurement of external light sources. These can be coupled with customizable collection optics to focus a range of sizes and power outputs of light sources into the interferometer.
  • Rapid Scan and Step Scan

    Rapid Scan (optional on FT/IR-6600 and 6700, standard on the 6800) offers spectral collection up to 20Hz (50msecs).
    Step-scan interferometers (optional on all 6000 FTIR instruments) coupled with matching high speed detectors offers two different spectral collection rates at either 1 millisecond (1000 Hz) or 10 nanoseconds (100MHz).
