Ocean Optics HR2000+ High-resolution Spectrometer

Ocean Optics HR2000+

The HR2000+ Spectrometer integrates a high-resolution optical bench, a powerful 2-MHz analog-to-digital (A/D) converter, programmable electronics, a 2048-element CCD-array detector, and a high-speed USB 2.0 port. This innovative combination produces and extremely fast spectrometer and provides resolution to 0.035 nm (FWHM). The HR2000+ allows users to capture and store a full spectrum into memory every millisecond (that's 1,000 full spectra every second) when the spectrometer is interfaced to a computer via a USB 2.0 port. The HR2000+ is perfect for chemical, biochemical and other applications where fast reactions need to be monitored and fine spectral features need to be resolved.

1,000 Full Spectra/Second

The HR2000+ utilizes an onboard, 2-MHz A/D converter, which allows you to capture and transfer one full spectrum into memory every millisecond when the spectrometer is interfaced to a PC via the USB port.

Programmable Microcontroller

The HR2000+ has an onboard programmable microcontroller that provides flexibility in controlling the spectrometer and accessories. Through a new 30-pin connector, you can implement all operating parameters in the software, such as controlling external light sources, creating processes and routines and retrieving data from external devices. The HR2000+ gives you access to 10 user-programmable digital I/Os for interfacing to other equipment; one analog input and one analog output; and a pulse generator for triggering other devices. (Programming the I/Os requires SpectraSuite Spectroscopy Operating Software.)

High-resolution Applications

The HR2000+ is ideal for applications where fast reactions need to be monitored and high resolution is necessary, such as protein dynamics. For solution chemistry or color measurements, the USB4000 is more likely to fill your requirements.

HR2000+ Sample Spectrum

This power-up data for our LS-1 Tungsten Halogen Light Source was taken by an HR2000+ at 2-millisecond intervals. The graph shows the tremendous amount of data generated with the HR2000+’s acquisition rate speed of 1000 spectra per second.

High-resolution "HR" Optical Bench

The exceptional 0.035 nm optical resolution of the HR2000+ is achieved by using the Ocean Optics High-resolution Optical Bench – a 25.4-mm diameter, 101.6-mm focal length, symmetrical crossed Czerny-Turner optical design. The HR2000+ is responsive from 200-1100 nm, but its specific range, resolution and sensitivity depend on your “HR” Optical Bench options. You select the grating, wavelength range, mirror coating, detector window and entrance aperture size. Choose from hundreds of accessories to create application-specific systems.

Plug and Play Operation

The HR2000+ interfaces to a computer via USB 2.0 or RS-232 serial port. When using the serial port, the HR2000+ requires a single 5-volt power supply (not included). Data unique to each spectrometer are programmed into a memory chip on the HR2000+; SpectraSuite Spectrometer Operating Software reads these values for easy setup and hot swapping among computers.

Optical Bench Options
