Instrument Systems presents new reference instrument for spectral measurement
CAS 140D preview generates plenty of interest at Strategies in Light USA 2017
In addition to the completely revised design, the fourth generation of the highly successful CAS series with many technical innovations scores multiple points. The CAS 140D combines all the advantages of the proven CAS 140CT in terms of measurement accuracy and reliability with sustainable technical optimizations to enhance repeatability and stability in every environment. Due to its improved optical and mechanical construction the instrument is smaller, more functional and simpler to integrate into existing measurement environments. Automatic accessory recognition enables fast and simple changing of a wide range of measurement adapters. In laboratory and production environments the new plug & play principle ensures a high degree of process reliability. The system automatically recognizes the connected accessories and ensures that only current and valid calibrations are used. Another new feature of the CAS 140D is the changeable interface between the spectrometer and control computer. Depending on the measurement task at hand, it can be exchanged simply via plug-in module with an USB, PCIe or Ethernet interface.
The CAS 140D is suitable both as a reference instrument in national calibration labs and for continuous operation in production. A wide selection of accessories supplements the array spectrometer to form complete system for all spectroradiometric and photometric measurement tasks.
The CAS 140D will again be available for live demonstrations to interested persons at the LED Taiwan (Taipei, Taiwan) to be held from 12–15 April 2017. Further information can be found on the Instrument Systems website.
