SpectraPen SP
Quick, reliable and easy measurements in the field or laboratory
About...

The SpectraPen SP 110 is a low-cost, handheld spectrometer ideal for research, agricultural and industrial applications. It may be used for rapid measurements of absorption, reflectance, transmittance, emission, color and fluorescence of various samples.

Spectral data, including irradiance readings, are displayed graphically and numerically on the SpectraPen touch screen. All recorded data are stored automatically into internal memory and may be downloaded to a PC for further manipulation and analysis.

The SpectraPen is self-contained, powered by a Li-ion rechargeable battery and does not require a PC, or other accessory, for complete functionality.

SpectraPen SP 110

SpectraPen SP 110 is a low-cost, handheld spectrometer that is ideal as a general-purpose instrument for research labs, agricultural and industrial applications. SpectraPen is especially useful for rapid measurements of absorption, reflectance, transmittance, emission, color and fluorescence of various samples.

The SpectraPen works with Li-Ion rechargeable battery and does not require for operation any PC or any other bulky accessory.
On the SpectraPen touch screen the wavelength and intensity readings and their spectral lines are instantly displayed. All recorded data are automatically stored into the device internal memory. The SpectraPen also includes a comprehensive software package comprising full system control, data acquisition and data processing. The SpectraPen is suited for wide scope of agricultural and industrial applications.


APPLICATIONS


  • Indoor and outdoor visible light source testing
  • Optical filters and protecting screens spectra measurements
  • Quality of artificial lighting

SPECTRAPEN MEASURES


Scope – rough spectrum data

Absorbance (external sample holder and light source needed)
A=log(I0/I), where I0 is reference light intensity and I is measured light intensity

Transmittance (external sample holder and light source needed)
T= I/ I0, where I0 is reference light intensity and I is measured light intensity

SOFTWARE


  • Different operation modes: scope, absorbance, transmittance
  • Different tools: zoom, marker, auto scale, curve smoothing
  • Automated setting of the integration time
  • Data browsing and data averaging
  • Visualization and data transfer routines to Microsoft Excel
  • GPS mapping plug-in
