Increasingly spectrometers are being deployed into field applications ranging from Raman & LIBS to radiometry and fluorescence. The applications are only limited by ones imagination because the hardware options to support a multitude of spectroscopy applications are available and affordable.
Avantes Compactline of spectrometers is ideally suited to field application. At around size of a deck of cards and weighing only XX grams, the AvaSpec-Minis are ideal for the range from 200-1700 nm.
Portable computing options abound today but few systems can rival the value proposition of the Raspberry pi. At around $35, the Pi offers huge processing power, compact size, low power consumption, powerful interface options, a huge user community and much more. The choice of the Raspberry Pi for your portable project presents low risk and great upside potential.
Recognizing this, Avantes supports the Pi with a Raspbian DLL. Our Raspbian SDK includes some sample programs in QT and Python. In 2018 our US Engineering Intern developed a portable project based on the AvaSpec-Mini2048 and the Raspberry Pi. For more information please contact a Sales Engineer.
