Portable Octane & Cetane Analyzer
The analyzer measures octane number via near-infrared (NIR) transmission
spectroscopy utilizing 14 near-infrared emitting diodes with narrow bandpass
filters, a silicon detector system, and a fully integrated microprocessor.
Simple octane number determination requires three easy steps: sampling a
background signal, acquiring two absorption spectra of the gas sample, and
then acquiring a second background signal. Analyzer is pre-calibrated for
unleaded gasoline and ethanol-blended fuels, and can be calibrated for up to
eight additional fuel types.
The analyzer is small, lightweight, and operates on AA" batteries or AC.
Before each reading, the unit standardizes itself to assure accuracy. The
octane number is printed with time and date on the built-in printer. All data
can be downloaded via the RS232 port to an external computer.
Accuracy and repeatability equivalent to ASTM approved CFR engines test
methods (ASTM D2699, D2700)
