Mini-spectrometer
TF series
C13555MA
Compact and thin, built-in high-sensitivity
CMOS image sensor
The mini-spectrometer TF series is a polychromator provided in a compact, thin case that houses optical elements, image sensor,
and driver circuit. Spectrum data can be acquired by guiding measurement light into a mini-spectrometer through an optical fiber
and transferring the measured results to a PC via the USB connection. The incorporation of a high-sensitivity CMOS image sensor
maintains high sensitivity equivalent to that of a CCD and achieves low power consumption. Moreover, the trigger function that
can be also used for short-term integration enables spectroscopic measurement of pulse emissions.
The product includes free evaluation software with functions for setting measurement conditions, acquiring and saving data,
drawing graphs, and so on. Furthermore, the DLL function specifications are disclosed, so users can create their original measurement software programs.

When there is a temperature difference between a product and the surrounding area in high humidity environment, dew condensation
may occur on the product surface. Dew condensation on the product may cause deterioration in characteristics and reliability.
Note: Exceeding the absolute maximum ratings even momentarily may cause a drop in product quality. Always be sure to use the
product within the absolute maximum ratings.

A/D output is the output with dark output
subtracted when light is input. The difference
between the ideal value and typical example
contains a measurement error. The smaller the
A/D output, the larger the measurement error.
A/D output is the sum of the sensor and circuit
offset outputs and the sensor dark output.
Optical component layout
The mini-spectrometer TF series employs a transmission holographic grating made of quartz and an optical system arranged on a robust
optical base to produce high throughput and highly accurate optical characteristics.

Connection example (transmitted light measurement)
Spectrum data can be acquired by guiding measurement light into a mini-spectrometer through an optical fiber and transferring the measured results to a PC via the USB connection. Since there are no moving parts inside the device, constantly stable measurements can be expected. Moreover, the optical guiding section uses an optical fiber making connection to the measured object flexible.
