ScanSpec - ScanSpec UV-VIS

The ScanSpec UV-VIS is optimized for an wavelength range of 250-800 nm and it features a 2048-element Sony ILX511 linear CCD array for increased signal-to-noise and enhanced electronics for controlling the spectrometer.
The spectrometer is preconfigured with a 600 lines/mm grating blazed at 400nm, 2nd order-sorting filter and a 50 Ám entrance slit for optical resolution <2.5 nm.
Most typical applications for ScanSpec UV-VIS are liquids absorbance and surface reflectance.
When you purchase a ScanSpec spectrometer, you can also choose from ScanSci complete line of spectroscopic accessories.  All accessories use SMA 905 connectors for application flexibility. Changing the sampling system is as easy as unscrewing a connector and adding new components or accessories.
