智慧CCD型分光儀採用2048元素偵測器與讀出速度高於2.0 MHz的內建16位元數位板。內嵌處理器可進行板載訊號處理，包括取平均、平滑處理以及自動暗雜訊消除。智慧CCD型分光儀利用USB 3.0，以提供超每秒930個光譜的數據傳輸率。
Smart CCD Based Spectrometers have been optimized for multichannel operation of up to 32 channels, and feature low trigger delay and gate jitter. The 1.05ms minimum integration time is adjustable in 1μs increments. These spectrometers also feature automatic temperature compensation to provide low thermal drift. Light input can be controlled with a fixed-intensity lamp using a fiber patchcord (sold separately). For visible and NIR spectrometers, use a tungsten source with a spectral range of 390 – 2800nm. For a broader UV to NIR spectral range of approximately 200 – 1100nm, use a deuterium/tungsten source.
The included software can be used to capture single or continuous spectra, in addition to supporting dark subtraction and intensity comparison. The software also provides automatically timed spectrum saving, and the ability to measure percent intensity relative to a reference, adjust integration and averaging times, calculate absorbance of displayed data, monitor spectral changes with time, routinely and systematically detect spectra peaks, save and display user entered comments with spectra, and overlay multiple spectra on displays simultaneously.
