LDS 100 Open Path

LDS 100 Open Path2019-01-10T10:23:25+00:00

The LDS 100 Open Path analyser is designed for highly sensitive gas analysis over long distances. It applies MIRICO’s proprietary Laser Dispersion Spectroscopy as its fundamental molecular sensing approach. The system can analyse multiple gases in a variety of conditions. The dispersion spectroscopy technique allows the system to operate in foggy, rainy and high aerosol conditions, while maintaining performance.

The product offers:

  • High performance, stability and accuracy
  • Real time measurement (up to 10 Hz)
  • Performance in “dirty environments” (soot, rain, fog, etc.)
  • Ultra long path lengths
  • Rotating head for auto localisation of multiple targets

An Open Path Analyser that Ensures Accurate and Reliable Measurement

The LDS 100 open-path analyser is designed to ensure highly accurate and reliable data across a range of environmental conditions.  The instrument applies MIRICO’s proprietary Laser Dispersion Spectroscopy technique, which is immune to transmitted beam intensity variations for ultimate sensitivity and accuracy. The modular design allows for ease of maintenance and flexibility in addressing customer requirements. The overall combination offers several advantages.

  • Multi-species gas analysis depending on application requirements
  • High sensitivity gas analysis (ppb/ ppt) depending on gas & application specifics
  • Fast measurement (10 Hz)
  • High selectivity, little interference, and high-accuracy in complex gas mixtures
  • Linear response over a broad concentration range
  • Simple and robust optical design
  • Field serviceable & replaceable modular units, minimising down time
  • Integrated system diagnostics
  • Detailed physical model for in-depth understanding of measurements
  • Easy to use and maintain
  • Automatic localisation of retroreflectors
  • Can be deployed in the field and on mobile platforms
  • Designed for remote, unattended operation
