SVC HR-1024i

High Resolution

Field Portable Spectroradiometer

This instrument combines the latest technology required to produce exceptional spectral data while capturing digital photographic, GPS and external sensor data. All data streams are gathered coincidentally and written to a single measurement file in order to provide the important spectral, positional and visual data for analysis. The included metadata saves time and improves the research.

The 32-bit instrument processor and internal memory allow operation without the use of an external computer, while displaying the data graphically on the QVGA sunlight readable touch screen for immediate confirmation. Measurements are easily acquired by one person by first setting the instrument parameters via the touch screen display and then initiating a measurement.

The SVC HR-1024i builds on the SVC HR-1024 which has proven itself over the past 7 years to be the most portable full range spectroradiometer on the market. The exceptional spectral resolution and low noise ensure that the collected data is of the highest quality. Now this high quality data can be stored internally along with scene photos and GPS coordinates while operating in stand alone mode.

The SVC HR-1024i includes a second Bluetooth device, allowing the instrument to receive data from an external sensor suite containing up to 16 separate sensors. The sensor suite can include downwelling sensors supplying instantaneous broad or narrow band solar response. The sensor data is stored with the spectral data file, allowing the researcher to understand changes in solar irradiance and assist in corrections. Other environmental sensors are available.

The use of 100% linear array detectors ensures excellent wavelength stability, while the cooled InGaAs and extended InGaAs detectors provide superior radiometric stability. Fixed foreoptics and hard-mounted internal spectrometer elements provide a robust optical path. Every design element of the SVC HR-1024i reflects a complete understanding of the demands of field data collection.

Rugged PDA

The SVC HR-1024i is furnished with two versions of SVC's proprietary software. One operates with standard PCs or laptop computers running Windows 7 or Windows XP. The second supports PDAs running the industry-standard Windows Mobile operating system. The Trimble Juno T-41 PDA, or equal, is provided with the HR-1024i and is an extremely rugged, waterproof and drop resistant, lightweight computer that operates up to 10 hours on a single charge. The ergonomic keypad and compact size contribute to ease of operation. Spectral data may be viewed in real time on the sunlight readable color display. The non-volatile flash memory guards against the loss of valuable field data. Wireless Bluetooth, RS-232 and USB ports provide optimum connectivity in the field or in the lab. SVC can supply optional, ruggedized tablet and laptop computers upon request.
