Ocean HDX – High Sensitivity Optical Spectroscopy

Ocean HDX spectrometer uses a robust optical bench design, optimised components and precision engineering to maximise optical resolution, increase throughput, reduce stray light and maintain thermal stability for integrated, industrial and research applications.

HDX has a back-thinned CCD array and High Definition Optics design, with X-Platform Electronics to enhance communication capabilities, plus powerful onboard storage and processing functions. Store up to 50,000 spectra and take advantage of onboard averaging to capture more spectral data in less time. Interface options include USB, Gigabit Ethernet, AP Wi-Fi and RS-232.

  • High Definition Optics – provides high optical resolution and excellent peak symmetry for applications such as elemental analysis, plasma monitoring and endpoint detection
  • High throughput – suits low light level applications such as fluorescence, bioluminescence and phosphorescence
  • Low stray light – excellent for unified color measurements; gives accurate measurements of analytes in solutions with high optical density samples such as inks and dyes
  • Small, thermally stable, compatible – integrates easily into production process environments for many industrial applications
  • Preconfigured – choose options for UV-Vis, Vis-NIR and extended- range wavelength response

High Performance Optical Spectroscopy with Seamless Integration

Ocean HDX is a general-purpose spectrometer well suited for research applications, integration into biomedical instrumentation, and QC functions in industrial settings. Outstanding unit-to-unit repeatability ensures measurement consistency across multiple
monitoring points on a process line or across multiple plant locations.
Key industrial applications include thin film analysis on a production line; high speed, high throughput colour and irradiance measurements for QA/QC; and real-time elemental analysis using plasma monitoring.

The high performance, high definition Ocean HDX spectrometer is available in an extended-range (-XR) version that covers the UV-NIR wavelength range. The Ocean HDX-XR has a 10 µm slit and extended-range grating responsive from 200-1100 nm. It delivers exceptional spectral performance, with high throughput, low stray light (>3 AU) and great thermal stability (+/-1.0 pixels from 0-40 °C). UV-NIR wavelength response, great thermal stability and excellent peak symmetry make Ocean HDX-XR well suited for optical spectroscopy applications including tissue monitoring, analysis of semiconductor gases, and identification of minerals used in steel production.
