Miniature Photodiode Array Spectrometer
Horiba Scientific has introduced the VS-7000-PDA Mini PDA spectrometer. The miniature fiber-optic linear photodiode array spectrometer features popular UV-VIS ranges in a miniature grating spectrometer, including UV-VIS (200 to 860 nm), VIS (380 to 750 nm), or UV-NIR (200 to 1,050 nm).
The spectrometer is compact, featuring a colossal full well from 100 Me– to 1 Ge–, low noise (2.6 counts), high readout speed of 3.5 ms maximum, and a high signal-to-noise ratio of 10,000:1. The VS-7000-PDA is suited for industrial low-light applications that require the ultimate performance in terms of stray-light rejection, which is achieved thanks to our concave holographic VS70 gratings.
Its single-optic design with concave grating offers excellent light purity. With no moving parts or shutter, it is reliable for OEM integration. It comes with Windows acquisition software for initial evaluation, and LabView Vis or DLLs are available for OEM integration.
