Trigger Adapter for Ocean Insight Spectrometers

HDX-Trigger Adapter for Ocean Insight (former Ocean-Optics) Spectrometers

Important announcement:
Unfortunately the 40-pin connector is no longer available. The manufacturer of that connector discontinued it, so we have stopped manufacturing the HDX trigger adapter. If you recently purchased one of these via Paypal, please request your refund as soon as possible or write to us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to process your refund. An apology for the inconvenience.

The trigger adapter "HDX-TRIGGER" is a simple plug adapter. It has a BNC trigger input and a BNC output to sense the strobe signal, which indicates when the spectrometer enters integration. On the other hand it uses the 40-pin DD4 connector facing the spectrometer. The trigger input and the strobe output have overvoltage protection.

Internally the module converts the levels of the TTL input trigger to 3.3V levels and vice versa, so it is compatible with any of the mentioned spectrometers

The HDX-TRIGGER is useful in applications that require synchronizing the capture of an optical event, as in Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS).

Additionally it has a push button switch to generate a manual trigger. This is useful to easily test that the spectrometer and its software on the computer are active and capturing spectra.

HDX-TRIGGER is compatible with the following spectrometer models:

Ocean HDX, Ocean FX, Flame-S, Flame-T, Flame-NIR.

Trigger Adapter for Ocean Optics Spectrometers

Trigger Adapter for Ocean Insight Spectrometers

The trigger adapter "OOTRIGGER" is a simple plug adapter. On the one hand it connects to an Optical Spectrophotometer from Ocean Optics, and on the other hand it provides a BNC connector to enter the trigger signal.

The device only makes use of the trigger signal of the connected spectrometer. This is useful, for example, in applications that require synchronizing the capture of an optical spectrum with the ignition of a flash lamp; Or with the emission of a plasma, as in Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy ( LIBS ).

OOTrigger is compatible with the following spectrometer models

Hr2000+, Hr4000, NIRQuest Series, Qe65000, USB2000+, USB4000, Jaz, Hr2000, Maya2000Pro Series Spectrometers

Pulse Delay Generator

Pulse Delay Generator DG-3O1I-17 With touch screen and USB

The DG-3O1I-17 Delay Generator (Synchronization Module) has Three TTL output channels and one Input Chanel. Each output is configurable in terms of the delay, relative to one edge of the input pulse. The duration of the pulse or pulse width and the type of output logic (positive or negative), are also configurable. The high speed and synchronism of this equipment, is due to the use of a FPGA device and a oscillator of high precision.

The touch screen start menu has an area that serves to put the logo and some text of the client or his laboratory; consult the user manual for more information on the size of the image to customize the product.

Delay Range: 0.1 us - 6553.5 us.
Delay resolution: 0.1 us.
Pulse width Range: 0 us - 65535 us.
Pulse width resolution: 1 us.

In a typical application of Laser Control for Spectroscopy, the outputs can be used as follows:
Output A: Flash Lamp Trigger
Output B: Optical Spectrometer-Trigger
Output C: Electro-Optic Q-Switch Trigger
