C9404CA
C9404CAH
High sensitivity type (integrated with backthinned type CCD image sensor)
TG series mini-spectrometers are polychromators integrated with optical elements, an image sensor and a driver circuit. Light
to be measured is guided into the entrance port of TM series through an optical fiber and the spectrum measured with the
built-in image sensor is output from the USB port to a PC for data acquisition. The C9404CA and C9404CAH are high sensitivity mini-spectrometers employing a back-thinned type CCD image sensor. Their sensitivity is about two orders of magnitude
higher than CMOS types making them even more ideal for low-light-level measurement. The C9404CAH is high resolution type
(resolution: 1 nm Typ.). Their products come supplied with evaluation software that allows setting measurement conditions,
acquiring and saving data, and displaying graphs. Original measurement software can be designed on an end-user’s side as
DLL’s function specification is disclosed.
Features
Applications
Integrated with back-thinned type CCD image sensor:
Sensitivity is about two orders of magnitude higher than
CMOS types.
Low-light-level measurement such as fluorescence measurement
Evaluation of light source characteristics such as UV light source
High resolution 1 nm (C9404CAH)
High throughput due to transmission grating made of quartz
Easy to install into equipment
Wavelength conversion factor*1 is recorded in internal memory
Supprts external trigger input*2
*1: A conversion factor for converting the image sensor pixel number into a wavelength is recorded in the module. A calculation factor
for converting the A/D converted count into the input light intensity is not provided.
*2: Coaxial cable for external trigger input is sold separately. Refer to the “Mini-spectrometers Selection Guide” for details on external
triggers.

*3: Depends on the slit opening. Values were measured with the slit listed in the table “ Structure”.
*4: Measured under constant light input conditions
*5: When monochromatic light of 300 nm is input, spectral stray light is defined as the ratio of the count measured at the input
wavelength, to the count measured in a region of the input wavelength ±20 nm.

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 is
subtracted when light is input. The difference
between the ideal value and typical example
contains a measurement error. The smaller the

Optical component layout
TM series mini-spectrometers use a transmission holographic grating made of quartz and precision optical components arranged on a rugged
optical base, making it possible to deliver high throughput and highly accurate optical characteristics.

Connection example (transmission light measurement)
Light to be measured is guided into the entrance port of TM series through an optical fiber and the spectrum measured with the built-in
image sensor is output through the USB port to a PC for data acquisition. There are no moving parts inside the unit so stable measurements are obtained at all times. An optical fiber that guides light input from external sources allows a flexible measurement setup.

Evaluation software package (supplied with unit)
Installing the evaluation software package (Spec Evaluation.exe)*9
into your PC allows running the following basic tasks:
· Measurement data acquisition and save
· Measurement condition setup
· Module information acquisition
(wavelength conversion factor, polychromator type, etc.)
· Graphic display
· Arithmetic operation
Pixel number to wavelength conversion
Comparison calculation with reference data
(transmittance, reflectance)
Dark subtraction
Gaussian approximation
(peak position and count, FWHM)
Note:
· Two or more mini-spectrometers can be connected and used with one PC simultaneously.
· The external trigger input function does not work with the evaluation software. If using an external trigger input or designing original
application software, the user software must be configured to support that function.
