FTX-ONE

FTX-ONE FTIR product picture

FTIR Exhaust Gas Analyzer

The World’s smallest Device*1 in its class for the simultaneous measurement of multiple components of engine exhaust gas.

The FTX-ONE offers a 5Hz sampling rate and simultaneously measure the concentrations of multiple components including NH3, CH4, and CO2, from un-diluted exhaust gas using the Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) method in combination with multivariate analysis algorithm.

*1 HORIBA Checked on May 2018 2018 as smallest footprint

Segment: Automotive Test Systems
Division: Emission Measurement Systems
Base product
Manufacturing Company: HORIBA, Ltd.
  1. Low sample flow rate but fast response.
    Whilst maintaining high accuracy by the use of a high performance compact gas cell.
    Multi-point exhaust sampling and ideal for catalyst evaluation in combination with a simulated exhaust gas generator.
  2. Approx. 50%*2 smaller footprint and reduced weight in comparison to a conventional laboratory FTIR.
    More Flexibility in cell layout and easier access for maintenance.
  3. At the Core of the Instrument - In-House Knowledge
    The analyzer is the core of an emission measurement system and the key to accurate measurement. HORIBA maintains excellent quality by manufacturing analyzers “in-house” and designs for operation & maintenance efficiency.
