Newark, DE, Dec 8, 2010
B&W Tek, Inc. announces the new thermoelectric (TE) cooled miniature fiber coupled spectrometer, the Glacier™ X.
The Glacier™ X is the smallest TE cooled spectrometer on the market, making it the perfect solution for applications that require high performance and portability. It is equipped with a 2048 element linear CCD array, built-in 16-bit digitizer, and high-speed USB 2.0 interface.
Compared to non-cooled CCD spectrometers, the Glacier™ X offers higher dynamic range, significantly reduced dark counts, and superior baseline stability, making it ideal for low light level detection and long-term monitoring applications. Wavelength configurations are available from as low as 200nm to as high as 1050nm with resolutions between 0.6nm and 4.0nm. Flexible custom configurations and application support are also available for OEM customers.
“The Glacier™ X gives customers the ability to make low light level measurements without the need for larger, more expensive spectrometers” said Jason Hammock, Sales Director for B&W Tek, Inc.
The combined temperature cooling and regulation, together with its compact form factor makes this model a favorite choice of OEM system integrators. The TE cooling makes it possible for weak signals, such as fluorescence and Raman, to be integrated for sufficient time to accumulate measurable signals for detection, resulting in a far superior signal-to-noise ratio.
