Analytical Spectral Devices, Inc Stearling Drive, Suite A Boulder, CO (303) fax:(303)
Device Specifications Range: nanometers 512 channel silicon photodiode array overlaid with an order separation filter Each channel will receive light in a 1.6 nanometer nominal band Spectral resolution of approximately three nanometers at 700 nanometers
Optics Light is collected through fiber optic head called a “bare head” The bare head has a field of view (FOV) of 25 degrees. Foreoptics may be added to restrict this FOV. 10 and 1 degree FOV restricting foreoptics are included.

Insert Battery and Turn On
Review Don’t over tighten anything 1.) connect cables and FOV limiting foreoptics 2.) add battery and turn on by holding down power 3.) now you are ready to attach to the computer!!
IMPORTANT Do not plug the GPS into the serial port until you have turned on the computer. If the computer freezes you may need to turn off the ballpoint mouse in the device manager Don’t let the spectroradiometer get too hot! If the spectra looks odd and it is hot out, first do a DC. If this will not help you will need to let it cool down.

Set the Foreoptic First
Set the Integration Time
Integration Time Adjust to improve signal strength Avoid saturation (right), that will appear as off-graph and be displayed in red above sample status bar
CDA Configurable Default Averaging will help to reduce noise Higher number will take more time, but improve quality of signal Control > Adjust Configuration
CDA Window 10 is default, but no less than 20 should be used.
