BTS2048-VL-TEC, CCD spectroradiometer with thermoelectric cooling of the CCD detector
The BTS2048-VL-TEC variant of the BTS2048-VL incorporates thermoelectric cooling of its CCD detector. The device meets all the requirements of a high-end diode array spectroradiometer and is favourably priced despite its cutting-edge design.
Thermoelectric cooling of the CCD detector minimizes the dark noise signal and enables integration times ranging from 2 µs to 60 s whereas those of the BTS2048-VL lie between 2 µs and 4 s. The BTS2048-VL-TEC is therefore ideal for applications with very low light intensities. It is also ideal for luminous flux measurements in which the integrating sphere connected to the device is significantly heated up by high-power lamps.
User software and developer software
The standard S-BTS2048 user software has a customizable user interface and a large number of display and function modules which can be activated when configuring the BTS2048-VL-TEC with the respective accessory components from Gigahertz-Optik GmbH. The S-SDK-BTS2048 developer software is offered for the integration of the BTS2048-VL-TEC in the customer’s own software.
One essential quality feature of photometric devices is their precise and traceable calibration. The BTS2048-VL-TEC is calibrated by Gigahertz-Optik’s calibration laboratory that was accredited by DAkkS (D-K-15047-01-00) for the spectral responsivity and spectral irradiance according to ISO/IEC 17025. The calibration also included the corresponding accessory components. Every device is delivered with its respective calibration certificate.
