Hardware Options for Sagitto Users

Sagitto has extensive experience in working with miniature NIR spectrometers. We have our own version, based on the DLP® NIRscan™ Nano, with several accessories.

While we're proud of the Sagitto miniature NIR spectrometer we're not precious about it. From our perspective, its just another source of data. Thats why we also support users who wish to explore the potential of miniature spectroscopy by using the DLP® NIRscan™ Nano EVM evaluation module. Both can be controlled using the TI GUI application, when connected to a computer via a microUSB cable.

Sagitto Miniature NIR Spectrometer

Sagitto's miniature Near Infrared spectrometer is based on the NIRscan™ Nano design from Texas instruments, and operates in the wavelength range of 900nm to 1,700 nm. It is very small and light weight, with a lithium polymer battery that is rechargeable through a microUSB connection. Designed to be entirely controlled from your iPhone or iPad using Sagitto's iOS app and low energy Bluetooth, this is the ultimate in portable and affordable NIR instruments.

Sagitto's spectrometer fits in the palm of your hand yet has all the power of much larger instruments.

Leaf Scanning Version

Each Sagitto spectrometer comes with a high quality NIR reflector, so that the instrument can be re-calibrated as required. We have developed a version of the Sagitto spectrometer where this calibration reference material is attached to the spectrometer case, for ease of use and to reduce the risk of it being lost.

Sagitto only needs a few mls of oil to accurately measure its properties using NIR transflectance spectroscopy.

Engine or Transformer Oils

Sagitto's high-volume fluid handling attachment allows the spectrometer to be converted for use with fluid samples within seconds. Samples of fluid, such as engine or transformer oils, are drawn into a quartz glass flow cell using a small peristaltic pump, through high-quality Teflon-lined tubing.

US$1,750 each plus shipping.

Essential Oils

For essential oils and other fluids that flow freely, no special attachment is required. Simply pipette the fluid sample into a stoppered 1mm glass cuvette. Place the cuvette directly on the spectrometer, and cover with the NIR reflector that is supplied with each Sagitto spectrometer, as shown below.
