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 is needed.
The AvaSpec-HERO is built around our High-Sensitivity, Compact (HSC), 100mm optical bench offering a NA of 0.13 and a cooled, back-thinned detector (1024×58 pixels). Electronics-wise, it uses our latest AS7010 board, which includes a high-performance Analog to Digital converter 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.
