The next innovation in miniature spectrometers from Ocean Optics — Ocean FX™ — offers high-sensitivity CMOS detector performance, acquisition speed up to 3,000 scans per second, and a robust communications module that accommodates Ethernet and Wi-Fi.

The new spectrometer is ideal for UV-Vis applications in food and agriculture, where acquisition speed helps with food sorting and processing; biomedical sciences, especially for absorbance measurements requiring enhanced UV sensitivity; and security and authenticity, where added communication interfaces enable simpler point-of-use instruments. Also, the onboard buffering feature ensures data integrity during kinetics measurements.

  • Sensitive – Responsive from 200-1100 nm, with great sensitivity in the UV and NIR
  • Fast – Integration times to 10 μs, acquire and process more spectral data in less time for faster, more reliable answers
  • Buffering and timestamping – Onboard buffer holds up to 50,000 spectra so you don’t miss a single data point during kinetics measurements
  • Easy connection to other devices – Operates via Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi and USB simultaneously
