  • Ground truthing
  • Geological remote sensing
  • Mineral identification
  • Solar radiance and irradiance research
  • Species identification
  • Lab applications including materials identification

The RS-5400 is designed for field work with a rugged chassis, no moving optical parts, and rugged metal clad fiber optic cable that’s field replaceable. It features one touch operation with auto-dark current and auto-exposure. Communications include wireless Bluetooth and USB connection. It includes DARWin SP Data Acquisition software that is Windows 7/8/10 compatible and saves all files as ASCII.

The RS-5400 provides high resolution/high sensitivity in a portable spectroradiometer for field or laboratory use. The unit is lightweight and runs off a 100-240V AC Universal 50-60Hz power supply or lithium-ion batteries.
