Pandora 2S

Pandora 2Spectrometer

Pandora 2S

Simultaneous hyperspectral observations from 270nm to 900nm of direct sun, moon, and scattered skylight are now possible with the SciGlob Pandora 2Spectrometer System. The system’s adaptable nature allows it to be packaged in a Field Deployable or 5U Rack Mount enclosure, making it perfect for a field or lab setting. 

The Pandora 2S Instrument increases any research station’s atmospheric remote sensing capabilities by capitalizing on today’s low-cost, miniaturized, fiber-fed hyperspectral spectrometers. This precise, modular, and versatile measurement system can measure trace gases’ total columns and profile information such as nitrogen dioxide, ozone, formaldehyde, etc.

Mounted on a microprocessor-controlled azimuth elevation tracker, the Pandora 2S can point anywhere in the sky. Complimentary control software allows automated measurements, remote monitoring, and data transfers over the Internet. Field deployable without requiring extensive support facilities.

The Field Deployable housing can be customized for more extreme climates to suit your needs. The 5U Rack Mount configuration fits in a standard 48cm (19”) computer server rack for those situations where the system is housed in a trailer or lab. The Rack Mount is thermally stabilized with easy-to-open access panels for maintenance. Both systems provide the same quality optical performance and remote access capabilities when coupled with the Pandora 1S Head Sensor and Sun Tracker.
