Test & Measuring Instruments

Development Kit supports industrial spectral sensing.

August 7, 2014

Measuring 42 x 42 x 24 mm, STS Developers Kit combines STS spectrometer, Raspberry Pi microcomputer, and customizable software with Ethernet and wireless capabilities, enabling spectroscopy to be deployed anywhere in plant for measurements like reflected color, irradiance, reaction endpoint control, or UV-Vis transmission. WiFi range is up to 150 m, and data is securely stored to onboard SD card. Kit offers choice of STS-UV (190-650 nm), STS-Vis (350-800 nm), or STS-NIR (650-1100 nm) models. Read More


Spectroscopy Software provides customizable interface.

June 17, 2013

Used with Ocean Optics miniature spectrometers, OceanView combines data processing capabilities with GUI. Schematic view provides visual roadmap of data flow, from spectral inputs to processed results. With flexibility of integrating temperature, voltage, and other input data, solution displays and utilizes spectral data from spectrometers. This lets users capture and visualize data from multiple sources. Persistence of settings feature recalls acquisition parameters and file locations. Read More

Handheld Raman Spectrometer uses ROS mode for optimal quality.

June 4, 2013

Used for sample authentication as well as counterfeit detection, identification, and verification, 9.1 x 7.1 x 3.8 cm IDRaman runs on 2 replaceable AA batteries and performs Raman analyses ranging from chemical and explosive agent detection in field to QA and QC sampling routines in laboratory. Average power needed eliminates sample damage as well as possible ignition of explosive samples. In Raster Orbital Scanning (ROS) mode, most compounds can be identified in <9 sec. Read More

Modular Raman Spectrometer measures 3.2 x 6.6 x 10 in.

February 22, 2013

Using optical design and high-throughput virtual slit to eliminate trade-off between sensitivity and resolution, Elite Series Apex 785 is optimized for 200 µ, NA = 0.22 fiber input and features usable wavelength range of 780–1,120 nm. Resolution (FWHM) is less than 10 cm-1 @ 800 nm, SNR is greater than 440:1, and straylight is less than 1% @ 800 nm. Along with SMA 905 optical input, features include dynamic range of 15,000:1 typ and USB communications. Read More


Device Driver Software facilitates spectral processing.

February 5, 2013

Providing interface for programming USB spectrometers and devices in optical sensing systems, OmniDriver v2.20 is available with optional set of spectral processing math algorithms. Java-based software also includes features for high-speed data acquisition, analysis, visualization, and transfer. With SpeedTest, users can determine max performance possible for spectrometer model on Windows OS. Algorithms for photometry and colorimetry are useful when measuring samples with sharp peaks. Read More
