Mini-spectrometer
TM series
C11697MB
Trigger function and a high sensitivity
CMOS image sensor included
The C11697MB is a polychromator 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 C11697MB is a mini-spectrometer with a high-sensitivity
CMOS image sensor mounted on the optical system platform of the previous type C10083MD. The trigger function accepts
even short-time integration so emission spectra from pulsed light can be measured. The readout time is drastically reduced,
making the C11697MB ideal for LED test on industrial productions lines.
The C11697MB comes supplied with free 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.

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
A/D output, the larger the measurement error.
KACCB0357EA
A/D output is the sum of the sensor and circuit
offset outputs and the sensor dark output.
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.
