NEWARK, Del., Sept. 13, 2011 — B&W Tek Inc. has introduced its enhanced series of thermoelectrically cooled fiber-coupled InGaAs array spectrometers. The Sol series spectrometers offer an extended spectral range and high spectral resolution options along with deeper thermoelectric cooling. All four spectrometers in the series have a USB standard interface for easy integration into OEM systems.
The enhancements to the Sol series near-infrared spectrometers will allow users more flexibility in configuring systems specific to their applications, with an increase in detection limits of nearly a factor of 10.
The Sol 1.7’s thermoelectric cooling has been upgraded from 5 °C to −10 °C for lower noise and better stability. The spectrometer includes three new grating options, allowing for 18 additional configurations between 900 and 1700 nm, and resolution as fine as 0.2 nm. Redesigned electronics allow the unit to operate with a standard 5-VDC power supply, making it more convenient for OEM integrators and end users.
The Sol 2.2 and Sol 2.2A also have been upgraded with three new grating options, allowing for eight additional configurations from previous models. These new gratings allow for an extended range of 900- to 2200-nm-and-higher spectral resolution, measuring <2.5 nm for the Sol 2.2.
