Ocean HDX Spectrometer Delivers High Throughput and Low Stray Light
22 Feb 2018
New spectrometer is anchored by high definition optics and robust electronics
The latest spectrometer from Ocean Optics uses a novel optical bench design and high-performance components to provide high throughput, low stray light and excellent thermal stability for integrated, industrial and research applications. The Ocean HDX has a back-thinned CCD array and new “High Definition Optics” design to deliver an exceptional level of spectral performance for a compact, UV-Visible spectrometer.
At the heart of the Ocean HDX is its High Definition Optics design, which uses a combination of optimized optical bench components, specialist materials and precision engineering to maximize optical resolution, increase throughput, reduce stray light and maintain thermal stability. This elevates system performance for several measurement types:
The Ocean HDX is responsive from 200-1100 nm, with thermal stability of +/-0.5 pixels from 0-45 degrees C. Its high thermal stability and small footprint – just 88.9 mm x 63.5 mm x 52.4 mm – make Ocean HDX ideal for integrating into OEM devices and industrial applications.
Ocean HDX uses X-Platform Electronics to enhance its processing and communications capabilities. Powerful onboard memory storage and processing functions speed up analysis time while never missing a data point. Users can store up to 50,000 spectra and take advantage of onboard averaging to capture more spectral data in less time. Communications options include USB, Gigabit Ethernet, SPI, Wi-Fi, API Wi-Fi and RS-232, offering connectivity for most any application or environment.
