Feb. 10, 2011
Date Announced: 10 Feb 2011 Newark, DE - B&W Tek, Inc., an advanced instrumentation company producing optical spectroscopy and laser systems announces the updated Quest™ series of miniature fiber optic spectrometers. The Quest™ series of high performance miniature fiber optic spectrometers now features an ultralow thermal drift spectrum of ~19 counts/C typical and a faster readout speed of >2.0MHz. As an added bonus, the Quest™ series is now available with optional RS232 communication interface for convenient integration into larger systems. “The fast read out speed of the new Quest™ series spectrometers makes them ideal for high speed applications such as LED binning and sorting,” says Robert Chimenti, Marketing Manager for B&W Tek, Inc. “We feel that this will strengthen our position as a leader in the LED characterization market.” The Quest™ series employs both a traditional crossed Czerny Turner spectrograph (Quest™ X) as well as an unfolded Czerny Turner spectrograph (Quest™ U) which minimizes stray light in the UV region. The series is equipped with 2048 elements linear CCD array, built-in 16-bit digitizer, and an externally synchronized trigger.For more information on the Quest™ series, please visit http://www.bwtek.com/product/spectrometer/.About B&W Tek, Inc.B&W Tek, Inc. is an advanced instrumentation company producing optical spectroscopy and laser systems for biomedical, physical, chemical, and research communities.
