The SteadiQ, from Ocean Optics, is an accessory for use with its range of field-portable spectrometers, which provides a temperature-controlled atmosphere. This helps to stabilise temperature effects and eliminate temperature drift in inclement conditions or extreme temperatures from -20C to 50°C. The rugged, portable device assures more accurate, reliable results in field applications including solar irradiance, volcanic observation, greenhouse monitoring, and industrial environments such as cold food storage.
Available in both UV (200-1,100nm) and Vis-NIR (400-2,500nm) versions, the SteadiQ interfaces directly with Ocean Optics' USB2000+, USB4000, HR2000+, HR4000, Maya2000, Maya2000 Pro, QE65000, and NIRQuest spectrometers. In extreme hot or extreme cold conditions, the unit operates independently from outside temperatures. It connects easily to the spectrometer with preconfigured plug-ins and communicates via the spectrometer's USB port.
