HR2000+ High Resolution CCD array spectrometer

HR2000+ High-resolution Spectrometer

colorimeter cellsThe HR2000+ Spectrometer integrates a high-resolution optical bench, a powerful 2-MHz analog-to-digital (A/D) converter, programmable electronics, a 2048-element CCD-array detector, and a high-speed USB 2.0 port. This innovative combination produces and extremely fast spectrometer and provides resolution to 0.035 nm (FWHM).

The HR2000+ allows users to capture and store a full spectrum into memory every millisecond (that's 1,000 full spectra every second) when the spectrometer is interfaced to a computer via a USB 2.0 port. The HR2000+ is perfect for chemical, biochemical and other applications where fast reactions need to be monitored and fine spectral features need to be resolved.

Use our Configuration Wizard to choose gratings & slits and see the effect on performance!

1,000 Full Spectra/Second

The HR2000+ utilizes an onboard, 2-MHz A/D converter, which allows you to capture and transfer one full spectrum into memory every millisecond when the spectrometer is interfaced to a PC via the USB port.

Programmable Microcontroller

The HR2000+ has an onboard programmable microcontroller that provides flexibility in controlling the spectrometer and accessories. Through a new 30-pin connector, you can implement all operating parameters in the software, such as controlling external light sources, creating processes and routines and retrieving data from external devices. The HR2000+ gives you access to 10 user-programmable digital I/Os for interfacing to other equipment; one analog input and one analog output; and a pulse generator for triggering other devices. (Programming the I/Os requires SpectraSuite Spectroscopy Operating Software.)

High-resolution Applications

The HR2000+ is ideal for applications where fast reactions need to be monitored and high resolution is necessary, such as protein dynamics. For solution chemistry or color measurements, the USB4000 is more likely to fill your requirements.

Turn HR2000+ into a Network Spectrometer

When purchased with the Remora Network Adapter users can communicate with the HR2000+ over Ethernet or Wi-Fi. Use with SpectraSuite Software, and turn your device into a network accessible spectrometer. Remotely capture spectral data from anywhere Plus, Remora allows multiple users to access data and experiment settings without the need for additional equipment. Remora's web-interface works with all popular web browsers and allows you to monitor data from a PDA, iPhone, and most internet ready devices. - Learn more

HR2000+ Sample Spectrum

This power-up data for our LS-1 Tungsten Halogen Light Source was taken by an HR2000+ at 2-millisecond intervals. The graph shows the tremendous amount of data generated with the HR2000+’s acquisition rate speed of 1000 spectra per second.

High-resolution "HR" Optical Bench

The exceptional 0.035 nm optical resolution of the HR2000+ is achieved by using the Ocean Optics High-resolution Optical Bench – a 25.4-mm diameter, 101.6-mm focal length, symmetrical crossed Czerny-Turner optical design. The HR2000+ is responsive from 200-1100 nm, but its specific range, resolution and sensitivity depend on your “HR” Optical Bench options. You select the grating, wavelength range, mirror coating, detector window and entrance aperture size. Choose from hundreds of accessories to create application-specific systems.

Multiple Interface Options

The HR2000+ interfaces to a computer via USB 2.0 or RS-232 serial port. When combined with the Remora Network Adapter, the USB interface allows you communication via Ethernet and/or wireless network. When using the serial port, the HR2000+ requires a single 5-volt power supply (not included). Data unique to each spectrometer are programmed into a memory chip on the HR2000+; SpectraSuite Spectrometer Operating Software reads these values for easy setup and hot swapping among computers.

Optical Bench Options

At Ocean Optics, we understand that your work is unique and that you want a spectrometer to fit your specific needs. With the HR2000+ Spectrometer, you can configure the bench for your application. Choose HR2000+ Optical Bench Options such as entrance aperture size, detector accessories, filters a grating and more. Our application scientists will help you determine which configuration will best work for you.

Installation & Operation Manual

Our HR2000+ Manual provides you with instructions for setting up, calibrating and performing experiments with your HR4000 spectrometer.

HR2000+ Upgrade to LIBS 1-channel System

You can turn your HR2000+ Spectrometer into a 1-channel LIBS System (LIBS2500-1PLUS) with the LIB2500plus Controller and the following equipment:

  • LIBS Sample Chamber (LIBS-SC)
  • LIBS Laser (200mJ or 50 mJ)
  • LIBS Imaging Module (LIBS-IM-USB)
  • LIBS Controller Cables

Contact Ocean Optics to return your HR2000+ to the factory for a firmware upgrade and the required LIBS equipment to upgrade your HR2000+ Spectrometer to a LIBS2500-1PLUS.
