CORONA PLUS REMOTE is a complete spectrometer system available in a single-beam or dual-beam configuration.

Areas of application
CORONA PLUS REMOTE is used to measure optical properties such as reflectance, transmission, color and coating thickness. These instrument systems have been designed for complex and fast measurements in quality and process monitoring under industrial conditions. Robust and extremely reliable, they are ideal for monitoring the production of architectural and automotive glass, plastics and coatings and the manufacture of solar cells.
Furthermore, CORONA PLUS REMOTE is the system of choice for all applications in which speed and performance count.


 CORONA PLUS is an industrial reflection/transmission measuring head for applications in the VIS/NIR range with an integrated spectral sensor and micro computer. 

CORONA PLUS 45 NIR has been designed for online measurements in quality assurance and process control. It is also possible to reliably measure very different samples even in rough environments. Therefore, the sensor unit is ideal for incoming goods inspection and humidity monitoring in the pharmaceutical and chemical sectors as well as in the food industry. Furthermore, CORONA PLUS 45 NIR can be used for ingredient measurements and the measurement of the concentration and homogeneity of components during mixing procedures. Last but not least, it is also ideal as a universal instrument for research and development.

MCS 600

The MCS 600 process-tested spectrometers perform even the most challenging measurements in the UV/VIS/NIR spectral regions quickly, efficiently and precisely.

The cost-effective MCS 600 systems feature the time-tested, modular principle of the MCS 500 series with a number of major enhancements. Highlights of the new design include an increased signal-to-noise ratio, improved wavelength accuracy and an intelligent housing system, allowing different UV/VIS/NIR spectrometers to be directly combined for the very first time – covering the spectral range from 190 to 2200 nm. Additionally, the MCS 600 sets a new standard for data processing through robust communications with peripheral systems and databases employing protocols such as OPC. You will also enjoy excellent ease of use thanks to specially tailored software packages such as processXplorer. The result: utilizing one instrument, you can simultaneously record high quality spectra from a variety of spectral regions, multiple probes and external sensors with a single, modern process monitoring interface.


The MCS CCD Lab system is available in different versions: UV for the spectral range from 200 to 600 nm, and UV-NIR for 200 to 980 nm.

The systems can have a USB 2.0 or PCI interface for the connection to the computer. Light guides can be connected via standard SMA connector as optical entrance. The electronic of the system provides full 16-bit resolution and due to the cooling of the detector integration times up to one minute can be realized.Built in the time-tested and sturdy design, the new MCS CCD provides all benefits of the proven MCS spectral sensors such as thermal stability and vibration resistance. The heart of the spectrometer is a module with a blazed flat-field grating for light dispersion and imaging, fiber optical cross-section-converter as entrance slit and a cooled CCD detector. All optical components described have been permanently cemented together in a ceramic body. This technology results in a wavelength stability of the spectrometer modules which is better than 0.1 nm and thermal drift of less than 0.01nm/K.


  • Very high sensitivity

  • Detection of low light levels

  • Use for diverse measuring tasks; e.g fluorescence measurement

  • Robust and thermally stable


HELIO C UV-NIR is an extremely compact spectrometer that features outstanding user-friendliness, economic efficiency and performance.

With this spectrometer, Carl Zeiss closes the gap between the MMS, MCS and CGS class spectrometers and the spectrometer systems of the MCS 600 and CORONA PLUS line. This provides users for the first time with a compact spectrometer which can work with a USB or Ethernet interface. The heart of the new spectrometer is the newly developed CGS spectrometer module. The CGS comprises an imaging grating, an optical port and an uncooled CCD detector. The CCD detector has an electric shutter function that enables minimal integration times.
The core of the spectrometers is a blazed, flat-field grating for light dispersion and imaging. Common measuring heads can be connected via the SMA interface. The spectrometer is thus configured for all industrial measuring jobs.

Benefits of the new HELIO C spectrometer:

  • Ready-to-measure

  • 190 - 1000 nm wavelength range

  • High sensitivity and good resolution

  • High, 16-bit dynamic range  Outstanding signal-to-noise ratio
