Curious how spectroscopy can help you reveal answers by measuring all kind of materials, in-line, at your production facility, in a lab or even in the field? Browse through our products or contact us for advice and guidance. We are happy to help you!

The AvaSpec-HERO is the answer for those who need high resolution and high sensitivity. This spectrometer combines the best of both worlds, so no compromise needed. The AvaSpec-HERO is built up around our High-Sensitivity, Compact (HSC), 100mm optical bench offering a NA of 0.13 and a cooled, back-thinned detector (1024×58 pixels). Electronics wise, it uses our latest AS7010 board, which includes a high-performance Analog to Digital convertor with excellent noise performance and the ability of high-speed communication through USB 3.0 and Ethernet.

The combination of these two state-of-the-art components will give you an excellent instrument, offering the ideal balance between sensitivity and resolution and the capability of using longer integration times in low-light applications, yet ensuring perfect signal-to-noise performance, transferred by the latest communication standards.

The Avaspec-HERO is suitable for use with replaceable slits, offering optimum flexibility for a variety of applications. The combination of all the above features makes the AvaSpec-Hero your ideal companion for all your spectroscopic measurements.
