SILVER-Nova TE Cooled Detector
Thermoelectric cooling on the SILVER-Nova reduces the dark scan noise at large exposures. This allows for improved S/N for many low light applications such as reflectance or fluoresence.
The SILVER-Nova is the most well rounded spectrometer choice allowing research grade results for numerous spectroscopic applications over the 190-1110nm wavelength range.
Composite Grating Technology to deliver high efficiency in both the UV & NIR spectral extremes.
Superior Detector Sensitivity – The UV enhanced CCD detector with integrated TE cooler, gain enhancements, and optical lens assemblies allow for unparalleled sensitivity, with over 65% decreased noise at long exposures.
High Resolution – Advancements in SILVER-Nova optical design deliver 1nm resolution with a 25um slit. Additionally, the metal enclosure is ruggedized and compact to allow for portable, process, or laboratory environments.
Included TEC and TEC-X2 Upgrade Capability – Optical housing includes sealed and isolated detector enclosure with specialized heat sink and air flow design for added stability and cool operation. Thermoelectric detector cooling improves the stability of the detector for lengthy measurements where thermal noise can distort and override signal. Standard SILVER-Nova includes 1-stage TEC for -15 degrees and options for upgrade to the 2-stage TEC-X2 for -30 degrees below ambient; this increases instrument S/N drastically by reducing noise over 80% at long exposures.
Ruggedized – The detachable spectrograph assembly and control electronics are protected inside a rugged metal enclosure, suitable for portable, process, lab, and field applications.
Onboard Memory with pre-set calibrations and spectrometer settings and snap shot memory to provide instantaneous spectral image from the highly sensitive CCD with 2048.
High Speed Electronic Interface can be attached directly to a computers USB port for high speed data transfer. Options for Wifi/ethernet communication available as well as other interfaces. for more info.
