The EPP2000C fiber optic spectrometer from StellarNet Inc. is for UV/VIS applications from 200 to 850 nm. It provides 4-ms spectral data from a CCD or optional photodiode array detector. The device uses a concave, aberration-corrected holographic diffraction grating for imaging while minimizing stray light. It delivers resolution of 0.7 nm. The EPP2000C connects directly to a PC's high-speed parallel port, eliminating the need for a separate A/D converter.
