Neo Series: High-end spectrometer

The Neo Series spectroradiometer offers a unique combination of ease of use and precise measurement capabilities in a rugged package. The Neo uses a cooled, high-end CCD detector for low noise and high dynamic range. This makes it ideal for measurements where ease of use, stability, performance and price are critical.

The high-speed processor inside the Neo, combined with algorithms developed specifically for this instrument, eliminates the need for external computing power from computers in production processes. The data can be used directly in production without any delays in further processing of the data. This saves time and computing power of the operating system of a production line.

The Neo-Spectroradiometer can cover virtually any wavelength range in the 250-1100nm range. Two standard versions (VIS and broadband) are currently available.
The Neo product series is available with a variety of accessories, lenses, cosine correctors and integration spheres.

The accessories can be coupled directly or through a fiber. In either case, this is done using the ultra-rugged industrial fiber coupler. If SMA-coupled accessories are already available, they can be easily connected to the fiber coupler using an SMA converter. In addition, Neo can also drive up to three active accessory components such as an LED light source or a filter wheel.
