Ocean Optics Inc. S2000 multi-channel fiber optic spectrometer system


The main purpose of this tool is to produce a light source compatible with fibre optics. The light or excitation source sends light through an optical fiber to the sample. The light interacts with the sample. Then the light is collected and transmitted through another optical fiber to the spectrometer. The spectrometer measures the amount of light and the A/D converter transforms the analog data collected by the spectrometer into digital information that is passed to the software, providing the user with application-specific information.

Our model

In 1992, the founders of Ocean Optics revolutionized the analytical instrumentation market, [...] by creating a breakthrough technology: a miniature fiber optic spectrometer nearly a thousand times smaller and ten times less expensive than previous systems.


Light or excitation source Power input: 12 VDC / 800 mA 2048-element linear CCD-array detector high-sensitivity, low-cost UV-VIS-Shortwave NIR spectrometer the S2000 Miniature Fiber Optic Spectrometer A/C adaptor (WT-12V-E) an A/D converter interface cable operating software (OOIBase32) sampling optics

A/D converters:

The S2000 can interface to a desktop PC via our ADC500 and ADC1000 ISA-bus A/D cards. We also offer the SAD500 Serial Port Interface, which works with either a desktop or notebook PC. The S2000 can also interface to a notebook PC via National Instruments’ DAQCard-700 PCMCIA A/D card.

Light Sources:

LS-1 is a Tungsten Halogen Light Source LS-450 is a The LS-450 (supports LEDs ranging from 380 to 640 nm with broadband white LEDs also available)

Replacement bulbs for LS-450 series, MCLS:

  • LED-380 LED, 380 nm
  • LED-395 LED, 395 nm
  • LED-470 LED, 470 nm
  • LED-518 LED, 518 nm
  • LED-590 LED, 590 nm
  • LED-640 LED, 640 nm
  • LED-WHITE LED, broadband white

How to use it

Follow the instructions below to connect the light source:

  1. Plug the 12 VDC power supply into a standard wall outlet.
  2. Plug the 12 V output end of the power supply into the back of the LS-1.
  3. Connect a fiber to the SMA 905 connector on the LS-1.
  4. Switch the lamp on using the silver On/Off switch on the rear of the LS-1 and allow the lamp to warm up for approximately 30 minutes.

The LS-1 is now ready to be connected to your sampling system.
