CAS 140D CCD Array Spectrometer

 

The CAS 140D represents the fourth generation of the worldwide extremely successful series of high-end array spectrometers from Instrument Systems. It combines all advantages of the CAS 140CT in terms of measurement accuracy and reliability with sustainable technical optimization for increased repeatability and stability in every environment.

As a result, it offers even more versatile applications – from the reference instrument in national calibration laboratories to continuous production. A wide range of accessories complement the spectrometer to create a complete system for a wide range of spectroradiometric and photometric measurement tasks. Thanks to the modern housing and improved optical and mechanical design, the instrument is even more functional, but smaller and simpler to integrate into existing measurement environments.

1 Applies to a 100 μm slit.
2 With USB interface.
3 For a single acquisition with 4 ms integration time.
4 Measured with edge filter OG455 at 400 nm, relative to peak intensity of unweighted spectral data.
5 Measured 150 nm to left of the peak wavelength, relative to peak intensity of unweighted spectral data.
6 Measured with optical probe EOP-120 and OFG-414 fiber bundle at 600 nm and signal/noise ratio of 10:1, without averaging.
7 Immediately after calibration relative to PTB traceable calibration standard. Refers to twofold standard deviation. Applies to the measurement and ambient conditions during calibration (e.g. without density filter, good signal level etc.).
8 With shortest integration time, without averaging and with 50% modulation. This value improves with appropriate averaging (e.g. 9x averaging results in a 3x reduction of noise).
9 Applies to optimum spectral range; with 10% transmission and immediately after recording an averaged baseline.
10 Typical value. Applies with LS100-130 light source after 1 hour warm-up.
