Collects Fiber-Optic Measurements From Up to 16 Points
DUNEDIN, Fla., March 26, 2007 -- To tie together multiple sampling points requiring spectroscopic measurement with various probes, Ocean Optics’ Mikropack office in Germany introduces the MPM-2000 fiber-optic multiplexer.

The high-precision instrument optically couples a light source to either 8 or 16 outputs in sequential order or a spectrometer to either 8 or 16 inputs. The multiplexer can be used in a range of applications, such as chemical, pharmaceutical, laboratory and glass manufacturing, for accurate, repeatable measurements with fast switching times, according to the company.

OceanOpticsMPM2000.jpgThe MPM-2000 is ideally suited to settings where multiple locations need to be measured with multiple probes, all with one spectrometer channel and/or light source. It provides accurate measurements with a repeatability of 99 percent and optical throughput of greater than 60 percent, Ocean Optics said.

The instrument distributes light in sequential order, with switching times between channels of less than 150 ms. Its software and driver provide complete PC control. Switching order, switching delay time and system calibration are controlled easily by the computer interface.

The MPM-2000 features a precisely controlled DC motor for speed control without sacrificing power. The incremental movements are then converted to a digital pulsed output to assure exact control of sampling sequence. Each channel features a collimating lens connecting to an internal optical fiber system for efficient light collection.

The optical multiplexer is available in a one I/O version for connecting a light source or a spectrometer to 16 channels, and a two I/O version for connecting both a light source and a spectrometer to 8 channels each. These are available in both ultraviolet/visible (250-800 nm) and visible/near-infrared (350-2000 nm) models.

The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
A kind of spectrograph in which some form of detector, other than a photographic film, is used to measure the distribution of radiation in a particular wavelength region.
