Ultra-broadband spectral range: 350-2600 or 200nm-2600nm
Our VIS-NIR and UV-VIS-NIR are ultra-broadband spectrometers designed for use with fibered probes over the complete UV, VIS & NIR spectral range, 350-2600nm or 200nm-2600nm. The system incorporates one Arcoptix FT-NIR Fourier-Transform scanning spectrometer for the NIR range 900-2600 and one multichannel grating spectrometer for the VIS (350-1000nm) or UV-VIS range (200-1025nm). Both instruments are integrated in a single, portable housing that has two separate SMA inputs for the UV-VIS and for the NIR ranges, matching the transmission ranges of high-OH and low-OH fibers. The software supplied with the spectrometer automatically merges the spectra produced by the 2 spectrometers.
Unlike most scanning spectrometers used for such applications that take several minutes for a complete scan, the UV-VIS (350-2600nm) and UV-VIS-NIR (200-2600nm) give a result within two seconds! The software can be customized on demand for specific colorimetric or other standard measurements.
- Ultra-broad spectral range: 350-2600 or 200nm-2600nm
- Very good resolution(<5nm)
- Operation via optical fibers
- Fast measurements (down to 2 seconds)
- No fix pattern noise (as in the case of grating NIR spectrometer)
- Very easy to use
Features and benefits
Fibered spectrometer with the broadest available spectrum 200-2600nm
The UV-VIS (350-2600nm) and UV-VIS-NIR (200-2600nm) are the fiber-input spectrometers covering the broadest spectral range on the market.
Best of two worlds
The use of an Fourier-transform spectrometer for the NIR and a grating spectrometer for theUV and VIS is the best solution for a fast and reliable broadband spectrophotometer:
For the UV-VIS range the most performant solution is the multichannel dispersive spectrometer with a Si-diode array. This solution offers fast measurement times, high sensitivity and good resolution at a moderate cost.
For the NIR spectral range, the scanning Fourier-transform spectrometers produced by Arcoptix are superior to photodiode-array based grating spectrometers. Indeed dispersive spectrometers are based InGaAs photodiode arrays that suffer from various noises and distortions due to the pixel variability and usually cannot reach wavelengths beyond 2300nm.
The UV-VIS (350-2600nm) and UV-VIS-NIR (200-2600nm) are delivered with a free Windows compatible graphical user interface (GUI) program. The software automatically merges the spectral data from the UV-VIS and NIR spectrometers.
The free basic software package allows the user to:
- Configure hardware measurement parameters (amplifier gain, averaging, …)
- Display real-time spectral measurement results
- Set reference spectra (white, dark) and choose among raw spectra, transmission or absorption modes.
- Usual features such as save, open, zoom, rescale…
- Save data of combined UV-VIS-NIR spectra, or individual UV-VIS or NIR spectra
