Set consisting of Ocean Optics Red Tide USB-650 spectrometer, 321802 cuvette holder, 321855 fibre optic cable, and 321806 OceanView software.
The Red Tide series from Ocean Optics comprises high-quality digital spectrometers. The system is modular and many combinations are possible. Communication with the PC is by USB.
The core of the range is the Red Tide USB-650 spectrometer. The measurement range for the instrument itself is 350-1000 nm, over a 650 pixel sensor. The sensor's resolution is therefore 1 nm. The instrument's optical resolution is approx. 2 nm.
The spectrometer can be combined with an optical fibre for emission spectroscopy or a cuvette holder with integrated lamp to create a photospectrometer for absorption spectroscopy.
The effective measurement range depends on the supplementary equipment used (fibre, cuvette holder).
OceanView is Ocean Optic's software for measuring using the spectrometer, including controlling the lamp in the cuvette holder (in ChemPack and PCpack). The program allows the recording of emission and absorption spectra, colouring of the visible spectrum and more.
