Monochromators and Spectrographs

Princeton Instruments (Acton, MA) introduces the Acton Advanced Series of monochromators and spectrographs that combines high precision computer-controlled motorized slits, interchangeable triple grating turrets, and dual entrance ports. These features offer researchers complete software control of incoming light to the spectrometer and the flexibility to configure separate experiments for each entrance port. The Acton Advanced Series is available in four different focal lengths: 150mm, 300mm, 500mm, and 750mm, and is highly configurable for different types of detectors, grating combinations, and light sources.

Data Acquisition Software

Bartington Instruments (Oxfordshire, England) offers a new version of software for its Spectramag-6 Data Acquisition system. The Spectramag-6 combines PC-based data storage/display with a separate signal conditioning unit and supports simultaneous sampling on six 24-bit channels. The version 5.1 software offers up to 700,000 data points in a single scan recording, giving approximately one hour of continuous logging at 200Hz sampling and over eight days of logging at 1Hz sampling, a multiple scan mode that allows up to 10,000 single scans to be run back-to-back with data saved to PC hard disk, and digital filtering options for logged data.

Digital CMOS Laser Sensor

The Keyence GV Series Digital CMOS Laser Sensor from Keyence (Woodcliff Lake, NJ) uses a DATUM Algorithm to stably detect targets. The GV is an optical triangulation sensor, and it excels in detecting shiny objects with multiple reflections, as well as light absorbing materials such as black rubber. Designed for automatic, in-line sensing applications, the GV detects target presence or absence based on surface characteristics or target height and provides a GO/NG output. Up to four sets of sensors and amplifiers can be used for each application, and the GV Series includes four IP67 rated sensor head models with detection ranges of 45mm, 130mm, 450mm, and 1000mm.

Thermal Camera

The Jade LR is a high-performance thermal camera from Cedip Infrared Systems (Croissy-Beaubourg, France). The camera provides long-range images from fixed position surveillance applications, including passive observation, detection and recognition of targets by day and night. The Jade LR uses motorized lenses (25, 80, and 320 mm focal length), switchable by a single command, to provide detection or recognition capabilities at distances ranging from 5 to 25 km. It can be remotely operated through a communication line with the video image provided in either analog or digital RS422 format.
