The Cool Red Infrared Light Source is designed specifically for infrared fiber-based spectroscopy. Its unique optical and thermal design couples light energy from a silicon Nitride emitter, glowing at 1500 ºKelvin.
The Cool Red works beautifully as a complement to mid-infrared analyzers or in any general application where high-intensity infrared light is required.
This light source offers many unique features and an ergonomic design. For systems that require optical modulation, an integrated optical shutter can be modulated at frequencies of up to 200 Hz. The shutter can be driven externally through a 15-pin digital interface. If no external drive is available, the shutter can be driven internally by an integrated adjustable square wave generator. Frequency can be continually adjusted through the control knob on the front panel from .5 Hz to 200 Hz. The digital output for this signal can be taken from the same 15-pin interface and used to synchronize other devices.
