Boston Electronics' line of broadband (UV - Visible - NIR) light sensors are uniquely designed with selectable sensitivity ranges and amplified 0 – 5 V output. The new line is designated as Silicon TOCONs, noting their heritage to the successful UV TOCON products.
The sensors output an amplified 0 - 5 Volts to allow an easy integration with sensor electronics. Ten available models cover twelve orders of magnitude (picowatts/cm2 to Watts/cm2) allowing the user to match the sensor to their first stage electronics and eliminate being forced to use non-optimum sensors and non-optimum electronic designs. The Silicon TOCONs are compact TO packages and well shielded from external noise. Spectral coverage spans from UV to near-IR in a single sensor (290 nm – 1010 nm). Numerous applications include analytical instrumentation, chemical analysis, illumination control and laser detection.
