The SensLine is all about sensitivity. For those measurements under hard conditions, low emissions: the SensLine gives you that extra power. Back-thinned detectors move the wiring from the front to the back of the sensor, giving more space for photosensitive surface. Our triple stage TEC cooling keeps the detector at a steady 5 degrees Centigrade. The AvaSpec SensLine product line includes five high-sensitivity, low-noise spectrometers. Three of the instruments are based on back-thinned detector technology, of which two feature high-performance thermoelectrically cooled detectors.

The other two models are based on standard CCDs, upgraded to high-performing instruments as a result of Avantes’ unique and recently improved detector cooling technology. The back-thinned CCD detectors featured in the AvaSpec SensLine product family are high quantum efficiency detectors with excellent response in the UV, VIS and NIR from 200-1160 nm. AvaSpec SensLine instruments are fully integrated with Avantes’ modular platform, allowing them to function standalone, or as multi-channel instruments. These products are fully compatible with other AvaSpec instruments in our AvaSpec StarLine and AvaSpec NIRLine product families. The entire AvaSpec SensLine is available as a lab instrument or an OEM module for integration into a customers’ existing system.Avantes’ innovative ultra-low stray-light (ULS) and revolutionary new High-Sensitivity (HS) optical benches are the core optical technologies in the AvaSpec SensLine. These highly stable optical benches combined with our high-performance AS5216-USB2 electronics board deliver high-performance instruments at affordable prices.All members of the AvaSpec SensLine are designed to provide performance features such as:

  • High-stability
  • High-sensitivity
  • High-speed acquisition
  • Low-noise

For the highest sensitivity on the market today, take a look at the AvaSpec-HS1024 series spectrometers.
