The Arcoptix FTIR-FC (Fiber-Coupling) is a variant of our FTIR Rocket spectrometer especially designed for operation with mid-IR optical fiber probes. It is a plug-and-play instrument including an IR source, high-stability interferometer, IR detector and SMA fiber couplers. The instrument was especially developed with process-monitoring applications in mind, using for example fibered ATR probes or other fibred sensing probes.

The FTIR Rocket is delivered with a free Windows XP,2000 (32-bit) and Windows 7 & 8 (32 and 64 bits) compatible graphical user interface (GUI) program.
The free basic software package allows the user to:
- Configure hardware measurement parameters (aplifier gain, averaging, ...)
- Display real-time spectral measurement results
- Set reference spectra (white, dark) and choose among raw spectra, transmission or reflection mode
- Usual features such as save, open, zoom, rescale...
- Some specific features related to Fourier transform spectrometry: choose among spectrum or interferogram averaging, apodization, look and save the interferograms, etc.
The FTIR Rocket is also delivered with a free API that allows you to control the spectrometer with custom code via our DLLs. Examples are available for the following langauges:
contains a set of standard manipulation operations used in spectroscopy, like normalization, derivative, baseline correction, peak picking and more. In addition some special operations are available, like multiplicative scatter correction, thickness correction or standard normal variate correction and others.
is a highly sophisticated IR spectrum interpretation tool. Based on an IR spectrum it provides you with automatic results for IR bands to functional group correlations and their characteristic frequencies. Furthermore it is a comprehensive electronic dictionary to browse frequiencies for correlated IR bands.
