SteadiQ Neutralizes Temperature Conditions for Accurate Spectrometer Measurement
Controlled atmosphere for range of Ocean Optics spectrometers
Dunedin, FL (August 27, 2010) – A new accessory from Ocean Optics (www.oceanoptics.com) is broadening the range of applications for its field-portable spectrometers. The SteadiQ provides a temperature controlled atmosphere, helping to stabilize temperature effects and eliminate temperature drift in inclement conditions or extreme temperatures from -20C to 50°C. The rugged, portable device 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 both UV (200-1100 nm) and Vis-NIR (400-2500 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 from outside temperatures. It connects easily to the spectrometer with preconfigured plug-ins and communicates via the spectrometer’s USB port.
