OEM Spectrometer Solutions

StellarNet's wide range of miniature spectrometers and complete line of light sources, optical fibers, and sampling accessories combine with software development tools to enable easy integration of various optical sensing techniques into end user systems.

Rugged and High Performance Spectrometer Solutions
StellarNet spectrometers are designed rugged with no sockets or moving parts inside an aluminum enclosure for extreme durability to suit virtually any application or environment. Internal detectors are bolt mounted while gratings and other optical components are mill-bonded resulting in vibration tolerant and shock proof alignment.  The spectrometers are powered via high-speed USB2 interface.  


StellarNet’s newest NIR spectrometer, the DWARF-Star, is small, robust, and equipped with high performance InGaAs detector array for the 900-1700nm wavelength range and achieves resolving resolutions to 1.25nm. The DWARF-Star features no moving parts and is packaged in a small rugged metal enclosure (5”x3”x2”) for portable, process, and OEM applications.  Advancements in electronic and optical design have allowed for size reduction never before achieved in a NIR spectrometer. 


The BLUE-Wave spectrometers are the standard choice for OEM.  Wavelength range and resolution requirements can be easily selected from the table below.  BLUE-Wave spectrometers are recommended for  process monitoring applications where throughput and collection speed are top priority. New and improved electronics with high speed 16-bit digitizer allow for fast data acquisition and signal to noise of 1000:1. Additionally, the compact size (25 x 75 x 125mm) makes system integration easy! Any BLUE-Wave spectrometer can be custom configured for specific wavelength ranges for OEM applications. Contact a StellarNet sales engineer to discuss your specific requirements.

The BLACK-Comet Concave Grating spectrometer is also recommended for OEM use.  This unit provides flat field detector imaging for continuous focus and uniform resolution across the wavelength range while minimizing stray light. No other miniature spectrometer on the market offers the advantages of the BLACK-Comet Concave Grating PDF.  This unit is slightly larger in size (69 x 100 x150mm) than the BLUE-Wave and offers options for an integrated thermoelectric cooler.

StellarNet RED-Wave near infrared spectrometers provide the high sensitivity and resolution over the 900-2300nm wavelength range using InGaAs PDA technology. The units are exceptionally robust and are packaged in small rugged metal enclosures for portable, process, and lab applications.  Compact size (69 x 100 x 150mm) allows easy integration.

The InGaAs detector is linear photo diode array with 512 pixels (1024 optional) 25μm by 500μm tall to provide maximum sensitivity.  The detector has an integrated thermo electric cooler (TEC) maintained at –10 °C, stabilized within +/-0.1 °C.  The unit requires external 5V power supply.  The various models below can be configured for OEM and custom configuration.

OEM Spectroscopy Software

The powerful SpectraWiz® 32 bit spectrometer software is provided free of charge with every spectrometer instrument.  For OEM customers, StellarNet includes drivers and customizable software for operationin WinNT /WinME /Win2000 /WinXP/VISTA/Windows 7

The SWDLL.DLL is the 32 bit SpectraWiz® spectrometer driver for use with popular Windows software such asBorland Delphi, Microsoft C/C++, National Instruments LabView, VisualBasic, and Galactic Industries Grams/32. The software required to interface with these other packages is included free of charge as part of the SpectraWiz® operating software shipped with each unit. 

We have sample demo program source code available free of charge for software development using StellarNet spectrometers.

LabView source code
Delphi (Pascal) source code
VisualBasic source code
Microsoft C source code


StellarNet LabVIEW program is a fully functional customizable spectroscopy program. The LabVIEW programming environment allows rapid customization to adapt the software to any application. Current features include setting of all instrument configuration parameters, plotting of spectral data in Scope mode, Absorbance mode, Transmission mode, and even Irradiance mode. In addition, a time series function is built in that enables the user to select independent wavelengths and follow them as a function of time. This time series data can be exported to file and post-processed for kinetic parameters. In addition to the Spectroscopy Suite, basic VIs are available that  allow the user to integrate StellarNet’s spectrometer into their existing LabVIEW application.


StellarNet also offers the customizable StellarNet VBA program for MS Excel that instantly grabs andgraphs data from spectro (SWDLL). Setup and run from Excel in absorbance, transmission, or scope mode. With our VBA modules, you can rapidly customize your spectral analysis to meet your unique research requirements. You can integrate this module’s data acquisition capabilities into your existing analytical spreadsheet, thereby enabling acquisition and analysis of spectral data without leaving the Microsoft Excel environment. Create custom reports, calculate and graph absorbance or percent transmission, all at the push of a button. It’s all here and more importantly, it is included free with your StellarNet spectrometer.
