Ocean Optics has launched the SteadiQ, an accessory that neutralises temperature conditions for accurate spectrometer measurement in field applications such as solar irradiance and cold food storage.

The company said the SteadiQ broadens the application range for its field-portable spectrometers.

It provides a temperature-controlled atmosphere, helping to stabilise temperature effects and eliminate temperature drift in inclement conditions or extreme temperatures from -20C to +50C.

The rugged and portable device is said to ensure more accurate, reliable results in field applications including solar irradiance, volcanic observation, greenhouse monitoring, and industrial environments such as cold food storage.

Available in both UV (200-1,100nm) and Vis-NIR (400-2,500nm) versions, the SteadiQ interfaces directly with Ocean Optics’ USB2000+, USB4000, HR2000+, HR4000, Maya2000, Maya2000 Pro, QE65000, and NIRQuest spectrometers.

In extreme hot or extreme cold conditions, the unit operates independently from outside temperatures.

It connects easily to the spectrometer with preconfigured plug-ins and communicates via the spectrometer’s USB port.

Our success

Recognized as the inventor of miniature fibre optic spectroscopy, we’ve sold more than 150,000 spectrometers worldwide since 1989. As a result of the dramatic reduction in size and cost, applications once deemed too costly or impractical using conventional spectrometers were not only feasible, but practical. Nowadays our spectrometers can be found anywhere: on treetops in jungles, on oil rigs at sea, on rocket ships in space and even inside the human body.
