Radiance collector on thin cable

Stand-alone
version on
user's cable

Optical

  • Usable wavelength range: 350 nm to 3000 nm
  • Fiber Optic Connector: SMA-905
  • Field of view: 8° in air, 6° in water with 200 µm fiber (FOV proportional to fiber core diameter).  Other FOVs available.

Environmental

  • Waterproofing: The face of the collector and the ferrule of the SMA connector are sealed with o-rings.
    • In HOBI Fiber Cables the entire SMA connection is also encapsulated for an extremely rugged, permanent seal.
    • In stand-alone version (shown at right), the user may need to encapsulate the SMA connection for underwater use, depending on the characteristics of the user's cable.
  • Operating Temperature: 0 to 85C
  • Maximum Depth: 800 m
