Setting New Standards In Electro-Optical Testing

Upgrade your SR-5000

Customers who have been using CI Systems' SR-5000 can now increase their measurement capability by getting the latest IR measurement technology with the newly designed SR- 5000N.

The SR-5000N incorporates a wide range of improvements based on the accumulation of experience at CI Systems on the needs of remote sensing measurements over a long period of time and exposure to its customers’ applications.

 These improvements increase usage flexibility and make the work easier and more efficient. The additional features and improvements over the old model are given below. We believe, as a result, that the SR 5000N will be a great addition to the capabilities of your Remote Sensing laboratory 


The difference between the SR 5000 and the SR 5000N are:

  • Measurement speed
    The measurement speed in radiometric mode (chopped) is increased by almost a factor of two from 30 to 50 spectral scans/second, while in the transient (unchopped) mode it is improved by a factor of five from 2x104 to 105samples/second.

  • Field of view flatness
    Uniformity of response as function of position of a point source within the field of view of the instrument is called “FOV flatness”. This parameter is significantly improved from about 11% deviation from constancy to a worst case of 5%,where the optics contribution is designed to be only 1%

  • Simultaneous visible and IR spectral measurements of the same object
    Until now it was not possible to measure an object’s spectrum in both visible and infrared ranges simultaneously because these two ranges could be covered only by physically replacing the CVF and the detector in the instrument. Today the SR 5000N has an added visible spectrometer optical channel complete with its own monochromator and detector, in parallel to the CVF IR optical channel.These two channels are pointed into the same direction and they measure the same object simultaneously in one fell swoop.

  • Easier pointing on the object to be measured and background image recording
    In the SR 5000 pointing the instrument field of view on the object to be measured is cumbersome because the user is presented with an upside down, somewhat washed out background image. In the SR 5000N pointing, focusing and image recording is implemented with a  CCD boresighted with the measurement channel line of sight. The background image recorded by this digital camera is easily seen on a large display on the optical head’s back panel before (for pointing) and during the measurement (for later data analysis, measurement set-up recording, etc.).
