Introducing the new pulsed xenon light source option for our Jaz modular sensing system. The Jaz-PX is ideal for UV-VIS applications such as absorbance, bioreflectance, fluorescence and phosphorescence.
The lamp has a specified pulse frequency of 200 Hz (maximum 500 Hz) and spectral response from 190-1100 nm.
The Jaz-PX operates in both free running and triggered modes, which allow its pulses to be coordinated with other devices in the Jaz stack. Flash-to-flash stability is <1% and the flash rate is 500 Hz. Jaz-PX has an SMA 905 connector that couples to Ocean Optics accessories, including optical fibers, cuvette holders, probes and other sampling optics. Because it produces a pulsed signal, the Jaz-PX is less likely to cause solarization in optical fiber assemblies, which can occur when fibers are illuminated with signal <260 nm.
The Jaz-PX is ideal for field applications such as bioreflectance that require a high-intensity, low-power source. In fact, no external power supply is required to operate the Jaz-PX. When used in the field, the lamp will operate from the power of the battery for approximately 3.5-4 hours. Additional power is available through an optional 50 Watt-hour Jaz battery extender (item JAZ-EXT-BP-50WH).
