Overview

IR Ready for Any Challenge

The Frontier is the gold standard regarding laboratory FT-NIR performance. The system can be upgraded to a Spotlight microscope system, have an external optical bench added, or be configured with an upgraded or additional detector at any time.

The Frontier NIR is suitable for a wide range of applications and can be configured to your needs regarding the level of performance desired to meet the demand of your daily IR analyses. See the configurations table below for all available instrument options.

Frontier FT-NIR spectrometers feature:

  • Temperature-stabilized DTGS (deuterated triglycine sulfate) NIR detector with <10µA RMS noise over 250nm range for a 1 minute scan
  • Optical system with CaF2 beamsplitter to enable quality data collection over a range of 14,700 – 2,000 cm-1 at a best resolution of 0.5 cm-1
  • Standard KBr windows
  • Standard gold optics
  • Standard AVC/APV/AVI configuration
  • Option to include the Near Infrared Reflectance Accessory (NIRA) as a package

An External Beam Pack can be configured to allow for automatic beam path switching for use with external accessories such as the Spotlight microscope, NIRA accessory, and the General Purpose Optical Bench.

Setting the Standard

The Frontier is loaded with a range of advanced innovations designed to provide optimal performance from the configuration you choose.

  • Dynascan interferometer – Fixed mirror-pair interferometer design does not require dynamic alignment to compensate for errors.
  • Atmospheric Vapor Compensation (AVC) – Features an advanced digital filtering algorithm designed to compensate for CO2 and H2O absorptions in real time removing the need for instrument purging.
  • Automatic Performance Verification (APV) – Optional feature comprising an integrated, fully automatic filter wheel containing traceable reference materials and software allowing for abscissa, ordinate, noise, ASTM, and USP tests to be performed.
  • Absolute Virtual Instrument (AVI) – Optional AVI standardization using gas phase methane spectra ensures instruments are accurately calibrated. Unique standardization allows data to be transferred precisely between instruments, side-by-side or in remote locations.
  • Sigma-Delta Conversion: The use of Sigma-Delta converters in the digitization of the FT-IR interferogram improves the dynamic range, reduces spectral artifacts, and increases ordinate linearity to provide accurate, reproducible results.
  • Variable J-stop – Limits beam divergence to provide optimal measurements at all resolutions, including intermediate settings.
  • Output focusing optics for second sampling station – Enables two sampling accessories to be installed simultaneously, removing the need to switch modules between measurements.

Frontier is designed to function with a variety of sampling accessories to enhance the versatility of the instrument including the Diffuse Reflectance Accessory, HATR, NIRA, TG-IR interface, UATR, Polarized UATR, General-Purpose Optical Bench, and Specular Reflectance Accessory.

Results Matter

The Spectrum 10 software suite drives the Frontier NIR system and can support advanced FT-NIR analysis in research and industrial laboratories, always providing optimal results. The software supplied with your instrument enables you to control the instrument and to manipulate the spectra that you collect. The spectrometers can operate in ratio, single-beam, or interferogram mode.

For regulated industries that demand secure NIR quality testing, Spectrum 10 ES software is available and encompasses user access control, audit trailing, data security, and data integrity to ensure secure analyses to meet the technical demands of 21 CFR Part 11 compliance. The revolutionary Spectrum AssureID software is available and can provide manufacturing QA/QC functions with a rapid, unambiguous means of verifying identity and quality of a production material. Spectrum Quant is an optional software package designed for novice and advanced spectroscopists who need to integrate accurate quantitative analysis into their NIR analysis.
