Ocean Optics, supplier of solutions for optical sensing, has announced that it has added SteadiQ to its range of applications for its field-portable spectrometers. Ocean Optics claims that SteadiQ provides a temperature-controlled atmosphere, helping stabilise temperature effects and eliminate temperature drift in inclement conditions or extreme temperatures from -20C to 50°C.
The portable device, claims the manufacturer, assures more accurate, reliable results in field applications, including solar irradiance, volcanic observation, greenhouse monitoring, and industrial environments, such as cold food storage.
- Available in UV (200 to 1,100 nm) and Vis-NIR (400 to 2,500 nm) versions, the SteadiQ interfaces directly with Ocean Optics’ USB2000+, USB4000, HR2000+, HR4000, Maya2000, Maya2000 Pro, QE65000, and NIRQuest spectrometers.
- In extreme hot or extreme cold conditions, the unit operates independently of outside temperatures.
- It connects easily to the spectrometer with preconfigured plug-ins and communicates via the spectrometer’s USB port.
