MicroNIR 1700ES

Viavi’s MicroNIR 1700ES is a lightweight and cost-effective near infrared (NIR) spectrometer that includes Viavi’s high-precision optical coating technology with innovation in optical1700ES system design and miniaturization.

By combining Viavi linear variable filter (LVF) technology as the dispersing element, the spectrometer has a light source, collection optics, electronics, and LVF in a housing that measures <50 mm in diameter, <45 mm in height and weighs only 64 g. The spectrometer is USB powered and can be used in diffuse reflection, transmission, or transflection modes. A MicroNIR Pro package includes a number of accessories that either enhance ease-of-use or enable measuring with varied configurations that perfectly suit specific applications.

Standard Accessories 

  • Standard collar for normal operation
  • Vial holder with 100 5 ml glass vials
  • Windowed collar for powder and soft material measurement and easy cleaning
  • 99% spectralon references for vial measurement and point-and-shoot operation
  • Softshell case for transportation and shipping
  • Bracket with ¼-20 thread for ease of mounting on regular optical post or mount


  • Transmission fixture for liquid sample measurement

Key Benefits

  • Covers the first and second overtone spectral region: 950 – 1650 nm
  • Powerful calibration model development tool
  • Enhanced electronic and mechanical design for better system stability and thermal control
  • Real-time predictions and method management
