1980A® Photometer System

Computerized Photometer


By replacing the original control console, the 1980A® photometer system becomes more reliable and versatile.

The user retains a tried and proven photometer with the addition of a state-of-the-art computerized data acquisition system and specialized software to manipulate the acquired data. The PCO-3000 software allows for storage of all correction factors needed to fully utilize the photometer in all filter and aperture positions. Data from the PCO-3000 may be exported to other software applications for further data analysis.

The system allows for user self calibration while retaining the original Hoffman Engineering calibration defaults. This unit is an upgrade from the PCO-2000 and only requires a laptop or desktop computer with a USB interface. The system comes with a proprietary six range digital photometer control box with a built in PMT high voltage power supply. Also included with the PCO-3000 are all cables necessary for operation, PCO-3000 custom software and initial colorimetric and photometric system calibrations. All calibrations are NIST Traceable.
