Temperature Control for USB Spectrometers

USB Temperature Controller (USB-TC) is an attachable heating device for our Flame and USB series spectrometers. The temperature controller addresses temperature-related changes in the optical bench and bench components that can cause wavelength and baseline drift, peak distortion and changes in detector sensitivity. The USB-TC is a good choice for applications on a manufacturing floor or other industrial setting, in an open air environment or even in a standard laboratory where heating and air conditioning systems can create temperature variations.


  • Modular – attachable device to improve stability of measurements
  • Versatile – compatible with our spectrometers such as FlameUSB2000+ and USB4000
