Accurate and Stable Measurement Results Over the Long Term
Unlike conventional multi channel detectors, beam splitter detectors only have one single aperture opening. Thus, major parts of the incoming radiation impinge vertical to the pyroelectric crystal, which allows for very precise gas analysis particular in gas detection technology. Hence, a gas cell with an effective diameter of just 2.5 mm is sufficient. Apart from an accelerated exchange of gas, this results in very low dead volumes of the measuring system. Measurement devices equipped with the detector can be correspondingly smaller. The permanently stable signal ratio between the individual channels ensures a high degree of measurement accuracy. This is because mechanical expansions in the optical system of the measurement device, ageing effects or any possible contamination in these detectors are already accounted for before the beam is split and thus affect all channels equally.
