Designed for those who want to create a platform for spectral measurements, Ocean Optic’s new STS developers kit features an STS microspectrometer, a Raspberry Pi microcomputer, customizable software, and wireless capabilities. The STS spectrometer features a 1024 pixel linear CMOS sensor and measures just 40 mm x 42 mm x 24 mm. Once connected to a WiFi network (range up to 150 m), the spectrometer can be controlled through phone, tablet, or web browser. (A plug-in WiFi dongle is included in the kit.) With the kit’s web-scripting API enables development of custom scripts and applications, allowing the STS and Raspberry Pi to perform a number of different tasks. Ocean Optics SeaBreeze drivers communicate directly to the spectrometer via USB interface.
In addition, the STS Developer Kit offers the choice of three STS models: STS-UV (190 - 650 nm), STS-Vis (350 – 800 nm) and STS-NIR (650 – 1100 nm). Application examples include handheld devices for light metrology or color measurements and mounting on UAVs in remote sensing applications.
