svc_hero_hr-512i_large The SVC HR-512i is our premier VNIR spectroradiometer covering the spectral range from 350nm to 1050nm.  This spectroradiometer supports a number of applications including, limnology, marine science, agricultural research and plant penology. Operating in the VNIR spectral range, the SVC HR-512i takes field measurements to an exciting new level. The SVC HR-512i excels in terrestrial and marine applications due to the superior data quality, leading edge optical and electronic design, robust construction, ease of use and integrated information functions.

Measurements are acquired in seconds as the internal CPU sets the appropriate integration based on current lighting conditions, while dark current is automatically measured and subtracted. The internal computer applies the selected radiometric calibration and the graphic data is promptly displayed on the sunlight readable LCD touch screen. No external computer is required to acquire, view and store high quality spectral measurements, accompanied with time and positional coordinates from the GPS, and digital images from the camera. The SVC HR-512i includes a second Bluetooth radio for communication with up to 16 optional external sensors.
