B+W Tek Introduces Glacier X Spectrometer for Low-Light-Level Detection Applications

B&W Tek announced that it has rolled out a new fiber-coupled spectrometer for applications needing portability and high performance.

The Glacier X spectrometer features a USB 2.0 interface, an inbuilt 16-bit digitizer and a 2048-element CCD array. The USB 2.0 interface transfers data at a maximum rate of 180 spectra per second.

 

Glacier X Spectrometer

 

According to B&W Tek, the Glacier X spectrometer has improved baseline stability, decreased dark counts and a higher dynamic range when compared to CCD spectrometers. The spectrometer is ideal for long-term monitoring and low-light-level detection applications.

The spectrometer’s wavelength configurations are available between 200 nm and 1050 nm with resolutions from 0.6 nm to 4.0 nm. The device’s readout speed is 500 kHz with an operational temperature from 15°C to 35 °C.

The compact form factor along with temperature cooling makes the unit ideal for OEM system integrators. The Glacier X spectrometer is ideal for OEM optical instrumentation building blocks, reflectance, absorbance, wavelength identification, spectrophotometry, spectroradiometry, near-IR, visible and UV spectroscopy.
