FTIR Spectrometers - Routine, QC & Teaching



FT/IR-4000 Series FTIR with KnowItAll™ JASCO Edition

FTIR Spectrometers







The new FT/IR-4000 series of FTIR spectrometers has been designed for efficient and trouble free user-friendly routine analysis.

The innovative hardware technology incorporated in this range of products provides a remarkable increase in the signal to noise ratio when compared to any instrument in its class.

Quick and Easy operation with JASCO QuickStart System.  Perform routine measurement as well as automatic data processing functions all at the single push of a button.

Simply from "Press to Print" it couldn't be easier.

Highest S/N Ratio in their Class!

Improvements in components and also in production efficiency has resulted in a remarkably high S/N ratio: 22,000:1 for the FT/IR-4100, 30,000:1 for the FT/IR-4200. A peltier element has been added to the DLATGS detector to maintain optimum temperature to ensure maximum stability and sensitivity. 

KnowIt All™ Informatics System, JASCO Edition Software

Enables you to search and access reference spectra, build databases with spectra and property information, and generate high-quality reports. The package includes:

  • SearchIt™ Import your own data and search reference databases as well as your own custom database
  • AnalyzeIt™ Interpret the bands in infrared spectrum for functional group analysis
  • RefineIt™ Process spectral data such as smoothing, baseline correction, and spectral subtraction
  • DrawIt™ Draw chemical structures
  • ReportIt™   create standard reports, design papers and presentations
  • MineIt™ Build your own searchable database from the standards materials you use in your laboratory 
  • Reference database of 10,000 spectra included in this package Features of all 4000

Protecting the optics with high throughput KRS-5 windows

Newly developed KRS-5 materials have been used for the windows of the DLATGS detector and of the interferometer, making the new FT/IR-4000 series even more stable and robust without sacrificing performance. 

Simplify your analysis with QuickStart™

All models in the FT/IR-4000 series have a QuickStart button, when used with the QuickStart program allows the user to perform measurement easily and quickly. This new feature is ideal for routine analysis and QC operation required when measuring multiple samples.

Series Models:

  • Quick Start button and Quick Start program
  • IQ  accessory system
  • Innovative patented ceramic source, with all the features described above, provides high light output and excellent signal to noise
  • High intensity ceramic source "stand-by mode" when the instrument is not in use protects the source from damaging thermal shock. Residual heat from the source protects the optics from any possibility of moisture ingress and ensures minimum stabilisation time when the instrument is switched on
  • Alignment free corner cube mirrors
  • The standard detector is a temperature stabilised high performance Deuterated L-Alanine Triglycine Sulphate (TGS) detector for high sensitivity measurements .
  • Optional detector , MCT with switching mirror and software auto selection
  • Sealed*, maintenance free interferometer (*Purgeable as standard if required and optional detector compartment purging is available)
  • FT/IR-4200 (5000-220 cm-1) Caesium Iodide/KRS-5 instruments.
  • External beam configuration for (IRT-3000) Microscope upgrade path
  • Rear access to electronic modules for easy maintenance
  • Vibration isolated optical bench
  • Spectra Manager II™   for Windows 
  • Choice of manual or automatic instrument validation
  • Validation Software supplied with all units
  • Quantitative Software supplied with all units
  • JASCO Canvas for customised reports supplied with all units
  • Accepts OEM IR accessories like the Golden Gate, PIKE, SensIR  including the IQ auto recognition
  • KnowIt All™ Informatics System, JASCO Edition Software supplied with all units

Confirm the accessory with IQ™ Auto Recognition Accessory System

This series includes IQa new Auto Recognition Accessory System that employs Logical Interface Control (LINC) technology. Once an accessory has been registered, the system recognises the accessory as soon as it is attached and its measurement parameters are automatically set. The Auto Accessory Recognition feature removes the necessity for repetitive and troublesome parameter settings and can help avoid mistakes made due to incorrect parameter settings. The accessories that can be recognized by the system are not limited to those made by JASCO. By registering attachments beforehand, accessories made by other companies can also be recognized by the system.

Simple operation mode

Having considered how our customers use our instruments, JASCO now offers two different operation modes. For high-level research analysis, JASCOs cross platform software suite, Spectra Manager II, provides a wide range of advanced features and functions that allow precise measurement and detailed data analysis. For routine and QC operations, JASCOs new Quick Start System has been added which allows quick, easy-to-use measurement and data analysis. With the new JASCO Quick Start System you can.....

  • Start measurements with a single push of a button. After pre-setting a measurement sequence, measurement can be performed by simply pushing the Quick Start button on the instrument or clicking the Start button on the tool bar of the Quick Start Measurement program.
  • Perform measurement and data analysis with no previous knowledge of the instrument and/or minimal computer expertise. Using the mouse, simply select the measurement, data analysis, print and / or save items you require for your measurement sequence and you are ready to start measurement.
  • Set a password to prevent unauthorized people from accessing and changing parameter settings.
  • When JASCO Quick Start is used together with JASCOs new Auto Recognition Accessory System (IQ), accessories can be changed over and measurement performed more quickly and easily than ever before.
