Ocean-FX wifi miniature spectrometer


Ocean-FX – Latest & Greatest from Ocean Optics

Truly a new spectrometer for our legendary line of miniature fiber optic devices.  The lineage…  S1000 (world’s first miniature spectrometer), S2000 (Sony ILX511 CCD), USB2000 (USB plug & play), OCEAN-FX – (CMOS detector, WiFo, Ethernet & USB).

The Ocean-FX offers a high-sensitivity CMOS detector performance, acquisition speed up to 4,500 scans per second, and a robust communications module that accommodates Ethernet and Wi-Fi.

The new spectrometer is ideal for UV-Vis applications in food and agriculture, where acquisition speed helps with food sorting and processing; biomedical sciences, especially for absorbance measurements requiring enhanced UV sensitivity; and security and authenticity, where added communication interfaces enable simpler point-of-use instruments. Also, the onboard buffering feature ensures data integrity during kinetics measurements.

WiFi opens the world or remote communications from AUVs, robotics, surveillance. Ethernet offers access from anywhere in the word over the internet.

Sensitive – Responsive from 200-1100 nm, with great sensitivity in the UV and NIR

  • Fast – Integration times to 10 μs, acquire and process more spectral data in less time for faster, more reliable answers
  • Buffering and timestamping – Onboard buffer holds up to 50,000 spectra
  • Easy connection to other devices – Operates via Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi and USB simultaneously
