March 2, 2005, Wilmington, MA--Polychromix, a developer of wavelength management solutions for optical systems, has launched its Near Infrared Digital Transform Spectrometer (DTS) product family. The DTS product family is powered by Polychromix's telecommunications MEMS technology.

Polychromix's DTS technology uses a MEMS spatial light modulator in a portable form factor, featuring a single InGaAs detector and no moving parts. In addition, devices feature low power consumption, utilizing a standard USB connection for both communications and power interfaces.

The DTS devices are currently targeted at general purpose spectroscopy applications. In addition, numerous customer engagements are in progress to implement industry- specific process control applications ranging from flue gas monitoring to trans-fat content in food analysis. The DTS product family consists of three spectrometer versions, the DTS-1700 covering the 900-1700 nm NIR range, the DTS-2500 covering the 1700-2500 nm NIR range and the DTS-NB high-resolution version for specific narrowband applications within the NIR spectrum.

"Polychromix identified a need within the spectroscopy market to provide a portable, cost-effective and highly-efficient spectroscopy device, and found that our proven MEMS architecture was a perfect fit to fill the void current spectroscopy solutions provide," said Mouli Ramani, vice president of marketing and business development at Polychromix.

The DTS product line is being launched this week at PittCon (Orlando, FL) at booth #4595 and in the Ocean Optics booth #2989. Polychromix is offering the DTS units at PittCon at an introductory price of $5000 - $7500 depending on specific configurations. Pricing of the DTS family is expected to remain below $10,000 after PittCon.
