Ames Photonics LARRY: A Low-cost replacement/upgrade CCD detector for spectrographs

The Ames Photonics LARRY USB2000 and LARRY USB4000 scientific-grade detectors are excellent for reviving or upgrading spectrographs. These cost-effective detectors incorporate a Ø42.5 x 6 mm mounting boss, identical to that of Newport Oriel LineSpec detectors. This allow for easy coupling to many popular spectrographs such as the Oriel MS125 and SPEX 500M ½-meter spectrographs. In fact, these detectors can directly replace the Newport Oriel LineSpec CCD detectors, but at a fraction of the cost.

The LARRY USB series detectors are fully compatible with Ocean Optics software, enabling a broad scope of features and long-term, up-to-date software and hardware support. For integration into existing systems, these detectors are compatible with and fully controllable via the Ocean Optics OmniDriver SDK, as well as LabView.

Ames Photonics also offer a variety of mounting adapters and plates for integrating the LARRY USB series detectors into other instruments and devices, with custom plates/adapters also available.

Compatible with:

  • Newport Oriel spectrographs such as MS125, MS127i, MS260i, FICS
  • SPEX 500M ½-meter spectrographs (replaces 1451X exit slit assembly)
  • Any other spectrographs with output plane ≥10 mm outside of the spectrograph
  • Other devices - let us know and we can customise an adapter for you!
