PRESS RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

HORIBA Scientific launches VS-7000+ Miniature OEM Spectrometer

High Sensitivity Back-illuminated CCD Offers Unmatched Dynamic Range for UV-VIS-NIR OEM Applications

EDISON, NJ April 23rd, 2012 - The HORIBA Scientific, global leader in OEM spectroscopy systems, recently debuted their new VS-7000+ Mini CCD Spectrometer. This new Mini CCD Spectrometer outperforms front-illuminated and low cost back-illuminated CCDs, while offering affordable volume pricing.

HORIBA Scientific addressed the need for improved performance from CCDs available for OEM. The Miniature UV-VIS VIS and VIS-NIR OEM Spectrometer is an ultra-compact spectrograph featuring a back-thinned CCD with a very deep full well, 2 height options (300 and 1000 mic) and a USB 2.0 interface.

The VS-7000+ is perfect for industrial low-light applications such as fluorescence, emission, absorbance, and reflectance. It offers coverage for three spectral ranges: UV-VIS (200–860 nm), VIS (380–750 nm), and UV-NIR (200–1050 nm). In addition, it offers the highest signal-to-noise ratio of any uncooled CCD mini-spectrometer. For TE stabilization or cooling, please contact our OEM team.

Its sturdy single optic design with concave grating offers unsurpassed light purity and with no moving parts or shutter, it is exceedingly reliable for OEM integration. It comes with Windows(R) acquisition software for initial evaluation, and LabView(TM) VIs or DLLs are available for OEM integration. A Linux driver is also available.

"The VS-7000+ covers the most popular UV - VIS range for mini spectrometers," said Nicolas Vezard, Vice President of Gratings and OEM Spectrometers for HORIBA Scientific. "Its concave grating features the lowest stray light in the UV region and the high dynamic and high sensitivity CCD addresses many OEM applications."

HORIBA Scientific offers the VS-7000+ for high volume industrial applications, from hundreds to many thousands per year. For more information, please go to our website www.horiba.com/VS7000+
