Ocean FX

Item Code: OCEAN-FX

The next innovation in miniature spectrometers from Ocean Optics — Ocean FX™ — offers high-sensitivity CMOS detector performance, acquisition speed up to 4,500 scans per second, and a robust communications module that accommodates Ethernet and Wi-Fi.

The new spectrometer is ideal for UV-Vis applications in food and agriculture, where acquisition speed helps with food sorting and processing; biomedical sciences, especially for absorbance measurements requiring enhanced UV sensitivity; and security and authenticity, where added communication interfaces enable simpler point-of-use instruments. Also, the onboard buffering feature ensures data integrity during kinetics measurements.

Product Details:

  • Sensitive – Responsive from 200-1100 nm, with great sensitivity in the UV and NIR
  • Fast – Integration times to 10 μs, acquire and process more spectral data in less time for faster, more reliable answers
  • Buffering and timestamping – Onboard buffer holds up to 50,000 spectra so you don’t miss a single data point during kinetics measurements
  • Easy connection to other devices – Operates via Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi and USB simultaneously



  • Wired: Ethernet, USB, RS-232, SPI
  • Wireless: Wi-fi 802.11 a/b/g/n


  • Detector: Hamamatsu S11639 CMOS
  • Spectral response range: 200-1100 nm


  • Configurations: UV-Vis (200-850 nm), Vis-NIR (350-1000 nm) and extended-range (200-1025 nm), with enhanced sensitivity versions of each also available
  • Optical resolution: Depends on configuration; 0.8 nm (FWHM) w/600-line/mm grating and 5 μm slit
  • Signal-to-noise ratio (single scan): ~290:1
  • Dynamic range (single scan): ~5000:1
  • Integration time: 10 μs-10 seconds
  • Scan rate (maximum): 4,500 scans/second (varies by performance of operating computer and system)
