Your FT-IR is Going Places. Join it!

The MOBILE-IR II, different samples, and the cable-connected tablet PC running OPUS TOUCH.

A TE-MCT means more performance, less measurement time.

More spectral power for your applications with a thermoelectrically cooled MCT detector. This faster-responding detector halves your measurement time and doubles the signal-to-noise ratio compared to a DTGS detector. Another advantage is the increased spectral stability, which is very useful to negate external influencing factors in a warehouse or at a construction site.

A heatable ATR crystal gives you practicality and flexibility.

The MOBILE-IR II offers a heatable ATR crystal with a sample trough to rapidly evaporate liquids or perform temperature experiments. However, if required, there is also a non-heatable, flat ATR crystal plate available, that allows to accomodate large flat samples more easily.

Wi-Fi, Ethernet, Cloud, USB - You decide.

You decide how to connect to the MOBILE-IR II and access its data. Either with cable or wireless connection from your spectrometer to the PC, the device provides any connection mode that you need.

The integrity and safety of your data is non-negotiable.

Security and integrity of data is critical for many use-cases. That‘s why the MOBILE-IR II offers all standard connectivity options, like cloud connectivity and data transfer to LIMS or MES via MS SQL.

Robust PC, rugged spectrometer, and easy software.

A robust spectrometer needs a robust PC. The included ruggedized tablet comes with an IP65 protection. With a touch tablet PC, measurements can be analyzed in standing, sitting or squatting position without the challenges of using a laptop.

OPUS TOUCH is a smart software you can use on any PC, with your fingers or mouse and keyboard.
The carry-case is sturdy, practical, and helps you bring the MOBILE-IR II where ever you go.

Rock and Roll.

MOBILE-IR II features our famous RockSolid™ cube corner interferometer. For more than a decade it has remained the benchmark for FT-IR measurements with utmost reliability. Even when you are faced with difficult work environments it keeps its stability and delivers pure lab-performance. And it does all that in a smart suitcase that rolls wherever you go.

Take everything with you.

The rugged MOBILE-IR II already withstands harsh environments, but its IP67 carry-case (trolley) makes it even more robust, protecting it from waterjet stream and dust. The included trolley offers the necessary space for your spectrometer, its accessories and the IP65 protected tablet PC. Now, you can safely transport your FT-IR lab anywhere

Power for the whole day.

The integrated battery provides you with power during off-grid operations and in-field activities. The indicator tells you about the remaining charge (100/75/50/25%).

Ready to face the elements.

The resistance to environmental effects comes with a tightly sealed FT-IR spectrometer with a metal casing to protect internal components from environmental effects, also increasing its lifetime.

Pack. Travel. Unpack.

Specifically designed for the MOBILE-IR II and its components the trolley has a lot of space for everything you need. Tidy and practical, it's almost like traveling with hand luggage.

Mobile FT-IR Applications

The MOBILE-IR II was made for explorers, first responders, harm prevention, law enforcement and all the other jobs that require a true lab-grade mobile performance to make our world safer. But that is only the first step. Bruker envisions so many more applications where a field-ready FT-IR can make all the difference in increasing productivity in the industrial field. From the quality control of the raw material to the product check directly at the production line.

Mobile or portable laboratories

MOBILE IR II allows first responders like firefighters, police, customs detecting harmful or dangerous substances e.g., explosives at the first instance. Another use are mobile laboratories is forensics, where illegal substances must be tested during a raid or bust.

Our application video shows how to use the MOBILE-IR II.

Mobile quality control in a warehouse or production line

With a demand for high turn-around of goods there is not always time to prepare new goods and send them to the lab. The MOBILE-IR II brings the lab to the warehouse increasing quality control efficiency for everyday routine. It is made so anyone can operate it - even without prior training.

Polymer recycling outside docking area

Used plastics are often brought to recycling plants in bulk. These plastics can already be identified and sorted at the first instance right by the transport vehicle. This saves time to prepare and bring the samples into the labs.

Harm prevention on-site at music festival

When the bass floods the festival, your instrument needs to be tough. In this application, local NGOs or government bodies reduce harm by testing illegal substances for potentially deadly contaminants, ensuring safety for all.
