Avantes - NIR Spectrometers up to 2000, 2200 and 2500nm
Avantes offers a wide range of NIR spectrometers. The 2.x-series extended InGaAs instruments feature 256 or 512 pixel detectors and are available in configurations enabling measurements up to 2000, 2200 and 2500 nm. Resolution can be as high as 4 nm (on the 512 pixel version) or 10 nm (256 pixel). Integration times can go as low as 10 microseconds. Four different gratings are possible.
A new feature of the NIR-series is the user-selectable gain setting mode: LN (low-noise, standard setting), which gives you a longer integration time and higher signal to noise ratio, or HS (high-sensitivity) for measuring in low-light conditions. This setting can easily be changed in AvaSoft 8. Analog and digital IO ports enable external triggering and control of shuttered and pulsed light sources from the AvaLight series of illumination sources.
All instrument feature a dual stage thermo-electrical Peltier-cooled InGaAs detector, especially designed for measuring in the NIR range. Connection to the computer is managed through the USB2.0 interface. Data is transferred in 1.0 ms. All instruments are supplied with AvaSoft-Basic, a manual and USB/power cable.
