TIDAS® E VIS/NIR
Compact VIS/NIR spectrometer for education and research.
TIDAS® E VIS/NIR
Entry Level Diode-Array Spectrometer for Education and Research
The TIDAS® E series has been developed especially for education and research. This instrument range provides ease of use of the diode-array spectrometer and flexible optical fiber technology, at a reasonable price. The diode-array technology makes these instruments fast, precise and universally applicable.
The TIDAS® E spectrometer series enables fast and efficient application of diode-array spectroscopy. They combine a detection system with an integrated light source, using the patented integrated dual cuvette holder and the option of the coupled external fibre optic. External accessories such as sample or filter changers are energised through control wires and triggers. Through LAN connections, the TIDAS® E is efficiently integrated into the existing network or connected directly to the computer.
The TIDAS® E VIS/NIR system is characterised by its high sensitivity. The wavelength range is from 300 nm to 1100 nm. A deuterium/halogen light source is integrated.
Plug und Play – with help of standard accessories the TIDAS® E sits ready to be immediately operational
Increased Flexibility – the patented cuvette holder allows a variety of measurement configurations that are seamlessly integrated within one instrument
Diode Array Technology – enables quick and precise measuring with a low level of scattered light
Software – modular and user friendly, permits the data acquisition and evaluation of individual tasks
With the TIDAS® E, the following measurement setups are possible without any need for instrument modification:
- Cuvette measurements
- External measurement setups, for example using immersion probes or flow cell measurements
- Layer thickness measurement through white-light interference
- Colour measurement and evaluation
- Absorption and fluorescent measurement
- Scattered light measurement
Selected measurement cells, light guides and ready-to-use applications complete the programm range.
The TIDAS® E spectrometers are designed as compact and transportable fiber-optic spectrometers with integrated light source and a patented dual port cuvette holder. With a single change of a mirror cuvette, absorbance, reflection and fluorescence measurements can easily be performed internal or with external immersion probes and reflection measurement heads in conjunction with either the internal or an external light source.
Another highlight of the TIDAS® E instruments is the single Ethernet interface which allows them to be easily incorporated into existing network environments. Trigger and control cables allow the coupling and control of external devices such as specimen or flter changers and light sources.
Even though the TIDAS® E is the entry level spectrometer from J&M, it is of high quality resulting in a sensitive instrument, with low noise and low drift. The TIDAS® E is a compact instrument which offer excellent value for money.
Lighting the way – The TIDAS® E Optical Path
The TIDAS® E demonstrates its flexibility with various measuring setups
With help of the patented cuvette holder and the mirror cuvette, various measurement setups are possible in conjunction with either the internal or an external light source. The patented cuvette holder and the external measurement setup can be used simultaneously. The flexibility of the design of the TIDAS® E manifests in various possible options of measurements using different optical paths formed by combinations of cuvette holder, mirror cuvette, optical fiber and light sources:

The flexibility of the design of the TIDAS E manifests in various possible options of measurements using different optical paths formed by combinations of cuvette holder, mirror cuvette, optical fiber and light sources:
Possible Measuring Experiments:
- Cuvette measuring in absorption/transmission
The light radiates from the internal light source, and is conducted from the redirected mirror, through the cuvette holder, into the correct detector. The measuring sample can be located in the second cuvette chamber.
Measuring with the Internal Light Source and External Fibre Optic Connector
Possible measuring experiments:
- Measurement of exterior measurement cells, for example immersion probes, external cuvette holder, flow cell measurements, and more
- Fluorescent excitation with band-pass filter
- Scattered light measurements (only possible when the mirror cuvette is removed and both external fibre optic connectors are bypassed)
From the internal light source, radiated light passes through the cuvette holder and illuminates through the external measuring cell. The light is redirected through the cuvette holder and channelled through the detector.
Measurement with Laser for Florescence Excitation as External Light Source
Possible measuring experiments:
- Cuvette measurement in absorption/transmission with an external light source
The light from the external light source is coupled over the cuvette holder and redirected over the mirror cuvette to the detector; thereby the sample in the standard cuvette chamber can be measured.
Measurement with Laser for Fluorescent Excitement as External Light Source
Possible measuring experiments:
- Detection with an external measurement setup (external light source and/or external measuring cell)
- Fluorescence excitement through external monochromatic light source (only possible when the mirror cuvette is removed)
The light from the external light source is coupled over the cuvette holder and redirected over the mirror cuvette to the detector.
