To facilitate the use of our AvaSpec series spectrometers, we provide our AvaSoft-Basic, free of charge. It features user-friendly controls and pull-down menus and is mouse-orientated. Mouse clicks control movements of a data cursor for instantaneous readout of wavelength, pixel, and Y-axis magnitude. The multi-window and multi-monitor interface enables side-by-side comparison of measurements. You can drag the mouse for easy and fast zoom-in/out on both X and Y axes. An unlimited number of AvaSpec series spectrometers can be connected to the computer, either through USB or Ethernet.

Controls for on-line/off-line spectral analysis are available in the main window. Software icons facilitate easy saving of reference, dark and experiment spectra. Additionally, changing the measurement units to absorbance, transmittance, irradiance, or raw scope data can be done with one click of the mouse. Rescaling the Y-axis, setting the scale for X- and Y-axis and peak/valley searching are also available.

Instrument control and data collection parameters are user-definable, such as detector integration time, auto-dark correction, signal averaging, and spectral smoothing. Saved graphics can be exported to ASCII and be exported into Excel and other data- processing software.

Other options are a 3D display functionality and the option to save a graph directly as a PDF file. File management features flexible file filters.
