Abstract The equipment described in the paper consists of a portable optoelectronic structure meant to determine in situ the element chemical composition, metallic material of a welding seam, basic metallic material welded, metallic walls of plasma or gas cutting joint, material welded or cut by laser, some charges of melted steel as well as some other high energy processes accompanied by emission of light electromagnetic radiation, using exactly the high energy radiation in the spectrometer analysis of these heat sources.
