The AvaSpec-HERO is the answer for those who are in need of high resolution and high sensitivity! This spectrometer combines the best of both worlds, so no compromise needed.
The AvaSpec-HERO is build up around our High-Sensitivity, Compact (HSC), 100 mm optical bench offering a NA of 0.13 and a cooled, back-thinned detector (1024x58 pixels). Electronicswise, it uses our latest AS7010 board, which includes a high-performance Analog to Digital convertor with excellent noise performance and the ability of high-speed communication through USB 3.0 and Ethernet.
The combination of these two state-of-the-art components will give you an excellent instrument, offering the ideal balance between sensitivity and resolution and the capability of using longer integration times in low-light applications, yet ensuring perfect signal-to-noise performance, transferred by the latest communication standards. A real HERO for your application!
The Avaspec-HERO is suitable for use with replaceable slits, offering optimal flexibility for a variety of apllications. The combination of all the above features makes the AvaSpec-Hero your ideal companion for all your spectroscopic measurements.
