IRIS is the new option for Gamma Scientific’s RS-7 LED Light Sources

Gamma Scientific has just announced the release of their RS‐7 IRIS option that allows easy adjustment of the light source’s output intensity.

This new enhancement for the SpectralLED® family of uniform intensity tunable light sources considerably increases the dynamic range of the light source. It is particularly useful for irradiance testing and characterisation of bare sensors.

The stepper motor controlled iris provides a variable output aperture which is fully integrated into the light source architecture. Available for both the visible and SWIR output models, the standard RS‐7 firmware includes aperture control and additional API commands.

About the SpectralLED®

The RS‐7 base platform incorporates the latest LED technology available. The RS‐7 VIS series contains 35 discrete wavelength LEDs, delivering a nearly continuous spectrum from 380 to 1000 nm. This allows for an unprecedented colour gamut and applications otherwise impossible for traditional halogen or LED light sources.

The SpectralLED® SWIR series employs LEDs at 9 discrete wavelengths from 900 to 1700 nm in the short‐wave infrared portion of the spectrum, providing a fully programmable spectra with highly uniform and stable output.

The standard configuration incorporates a controller and all software for full spectral calibration with spectral fitting, preset storage and real‐time optical feedback in a variety of measurement units.

USB drivers for Windows, OSX and Linux platforms are included, and external interface and control can be easily achieved via simple ASCII commands.  Custom configurations are also available.  For more information, please contact us or visit:



Lake Shore Model 336/350 Low Temperature Controllers Get 4 Additional Inputs Option

Lake Shore is now shipping its new Model 3062 4-channel option card for the Model 336 and Model 350 temperature controllers, doubling the number of inputs by means of an inexpensive plug-in board.  These widely used Lake Shore controllers use cryogenic temperature sensors for monitoring or control, and can be configured for diode, negative temperature coefficient resistor, or positive temperature coefficient resistor sensors.

The new Model 3062 scanner card can easily be installed in the lab, so there is no need to send the controller back for upgrade. The card is supported by Model 336 firmware version 2.3 and later, and the Model 350 firmware version 1.1 and later. To update either model, you can download the free Firmware Updater software along with the latest firmware release.

Visit our Lake Shore pages for more information on this and their other products, demo videos, and application notes. Alternatively, contact us for pricing and detailed specifications.
