Ecotech Spectronus - FTIR Trace Greenhouse Gas & Isotope Analyser
The Spectronus analyser provides simultaneous measurements of multiple greenhouse gas species with high repeatability and excellent precision without the need for frequent gas calibrations. The Spectronus analyser combines a Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectrometer, multi-pass gas sample cell and a high performance detector. It uses sophisticated software for fully automated operation and real-time quantitative analysis of trace gases in air or other gas mixtures.

At Acoem, we create environments of possibility.
As greenhouse gas emissions from human activity increase, they build up in the atmosphere and warm the climate, leading to changes in weather patterns, on land and in the oceans.
These changes affect people, society and the environment - including plants and animals. Because many of the major greenhouse gases can remain in the atmosphere for hundreds of years after being released, their warming effect on the climate threatens to impact both present and future generations.
The ability to measure and track greenhouse gas emissions provides a global context for understanding their role in climate change and a possible roadmap for changing human behaviour to protect the planet and its resources.
Acoem Spectronus (formerly known as the Ecotech Spectronus) is the only high accuracy multispecies trace greenhouse gas and isotope analyser based on Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. FTIR is a method that measures the absorption of infrared radiation by gases over a broad wavelength range.
Spectronus has been used for a variety of applications by researchers around the world for almost two decades.
As the only multispecies greenhouse and other atmospheric trace gas and isotope analyser based on FTIR spectroscopy, Spectronus has garnered a reputation as the only one capable of meeting World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) standard for measured species.
The next generation Spectronus greenhouse gas & isotope analyser - now more user-friendly, requires less power and fits inside a standard 19-inch rack.
In 2019, Spectronus was approved by the Integrated Carbon Observation System (ICOS) as a compliant and highly precise technique for measuring greenhouse gases within its network of greenhouse gases measuring stations across Europe.
Designed to fit comfortably in a standard 19-inch instrument rack, Spectronus makes it easier and more efficient for users to identify the presence of greenhouse gases. The data it captures can assist industry, government and researchers in implementing targeted pollution mitigation strategies and making more informed decisions for the future.
Next generation Spectronus is housed in two parts for easy mounting and easy access within a standard 19-inch instrument rack.
