    The Breakout Box includes a 30-pin HR4000-CBL-BB Ribbon Cable that connects the Box to the spectrometer.


    Ocean Optics HR4-BREAKOUT Breakout Box

    For easier access to a variety of functions found in the HR4000/HR2000+, USB4000, USB2000+ and QE65000 Spectrometers specify the HR4-BREAKOUT, a passive module that separates the signals from the spectrometer's 30-pin port to an array of standard connectors and headers.
    The Breakout Box can be used with the following spectrometers:
    • HR4000 Spectrometers with serial numbers beginning HR4B
    • HR2000+ High-speed, High-resolution Spectrometer
    • QE65000 Scientific-grade Spectrometer
    • USB4000 Spectrometer (with the USB-ADP-BB adapter)
    • USB2000+ Spectrometer (with the USB-ADP-BB adapter)
    This enlarged photo of the Breakout Box shows the connectors available.
    The Breakout Box allows multiple interfaces to a spectrometer, such as:
    • External triggering
    • General Purpose Input/Output (GPIO)
    • RS-232 interface
    • Light sources
    • Analog Input/Output

    In addition to the accessory connector, the Breakout Box features a circuit board based on a neutral breadboard pattern that allows custom circuitry to be prototyped on the board itself. The Breakout Box receives its power from the spectrometer, which runs off of a PC via a USB port, or requires a separate 5-volt power supply when the spectrometer interfaces to a PC via the serial port. If you are wiring custom circuitry on the Breakout Box, you likely will need the USB-CBL-PS power supply (purchased separately).
