Details


Students will be captivated by the live display. This system makes teaching spectra a pleasure because everyone sees the same thing.

The heart of the RSpec Explorer system is a turn-key, slit-less objective grating system. The grating is sealed in the camera, so it’s immune to dust and dirt.

The RSpec Explorer spectroscope is designed for demonstrating spectral sources (such as gas tubes), and for measuring the spectra of a wide range of light sources, including LEDs, street lamps, and others.

Spectral range is approximately 390 to 700 nanometers. Accuracy is generally 1% or better. Spectroscopic features as narrow as 3 nanometers can be measured.

Includes spectrometer with internal video camera, tripod, and one license for the RSpec Explorer software. The single license allows for software use on more than one computer (e.g. multiple equipment carts, podiums, educators’ computers, etc.). The hardware comes with a one-year limited warranty against defects in manufacturing. The software comes with one year of free updates and support.

Price includes shipping for locations within the continental U.S.  Product is drop-shipped.  For shipping to other locations, please contact customer service.
