The PX-2 Pulsed Xenon Lamp is a high flash rate, short-arc xenon lamp with output from 220-750 nm.
The PX-2 operates at speeds up to 220 Hz and offers excellent pulse-to-pulse stability. It can be triggered by an external TTL pulse and offers software control of the flash rate.
Spectrometer sampling can be altered so that a variable number of flashes are observed during each integration period. For example, in Single Mode operation, a single flash occurs during each integration period so you can easily synchronize both the xenon lamp and detector. In Multiple Mode, a steady, consistent light exposure is provided for each integration period, ensuring reliable absorbance and reflection measurements.
PX-2 Pulsed Xenon Lamp Product Overview
Adjustable flash rate — optimizes measurements of light sensitive samples
Simple operation — software control of flash rate and synchronization
Reliable performance — excellent pulse-to-pulse stability for long measurements
The PX-2 Pulsed Xenon Lamp has an SMA 905 Connector that couples to Ocean Optics miniature fiber optic spectrometers and accessories, including optical fibers, cuvette holders, probes and other sampling optics.
The PX-2 Pulsed Xenon Lamp operates at speeds up to 220 Hz, offers excellent pulse-to-pulse stability, and has two trigger modes for software control of the flash rate.
Any external TTL positive pulse can be used to trigger the PX-2.
When it is coupled to a spectrometer, you can easily synchronize operation of both the light and detector.
Because it produces a pulsed signal, the PX-2 is less likely to contribute to solarization in optical fiber assemblies, which can occur when fibers are illuminated with signals less than 260 nm.
The PX-2 features a TTL switch that provides two modes of operation: Multiple mode and Single mode.
In Multiple mode, the flash timing (pulse rate) is determined by the spectrometer. The Continuous strobe rate is either fixed or software controlled
When using Multiple mode, you must ensure that a constant number of flashes occurs for each integration cycle. This is accomplished by setting the pulse rate and integration time, which is controlled by the operating software
