FLAME SERIES Next generation

/ Spectrometers

The Next Generation of Miniature Spectrometers

The Flame spectrometer is built using industry-leading manufacturing techniques that help deliver high thermal stability and low unit to unit variation — without compromising the flexibility and configurability that are the hallmark of Ocean Optics miniature spectrometers. New features such as interchangeable slits, indicator LEDs and simple device connectors deliver more freedom and less frustration.

  • Modular — configurable to your application and needs within the wavelength range 190-1100 nm
  • Compatible—works with Ocean Optics light sources, accessories and software
  • Easy to use — plug and play via the micro USB connection
  • User interchangeable slit — allows you to vary the resolution and throughput of the spectrometer on demand
  • Indicator LEDs — indicator of power and data transfer status at all times
  • Compact and lightweight — 89.1 mm x 63.3 mm x 34.4 mm and just 265 g
