918D-ST Series Wand Photodiode Sensors

Newport Corporation has introduced its 918D-ST series wand photodiode sensors. The new design features a thin profile wand detector in a metal housing with integrated calibration-data storage and an automatic OD3 attenuator On/Off position sensor.

Similar to Newport’s family of 918D series detectors, the new 918D-ST series features built-in temperature sensing electronics to compensate for temperature variation.  The 918D-ST-IR wand operates from 780nm to 1800nm, the 918D-ST-SL from 400nm to 1100nm, and the 918D-ST-UV from 200nm to 1100nm.

The new wand detectors are available for shipping now with a NIST-traced calibration report that details individual detector responsivity, measured with and without attenuator.
