Accessories and Attachments

Selection of Accessories

The most suitable VIR system can be configured, by selecting accessories matched with applications required. The newly developed MultiChamberIR attachment allows the users to switch three measurement modes from transmittance, ATR and DR in one attachment. Such multi-measurement modes in one attachment are best suited to incoming inspection of variable samples such as powder, solid and liquid.

Combination with MultiChambIR Attachment

Up to three measurement modes in one attachment

Combination with MultiChambIR Attachment

External connection optics allows the users to install up to three attachments in one system and to use each attachment simply by switching. Furthermore, Universal optical base enables the users to configure freely customized optics by simply putting mirrors and sample holders onto the base. Therefore, even a large sample or an attachment which cannot fit in the ordinary compartment, can be applied.
