Flame Spectrometers

Part Number: 64018, 64019

Flame Spectrometer

Flame Series Spectrometers

The Next Generation of Miniature Spectrometers

The Flame spectrometer is built using industry-leading manufacturing techniques that help deliver high thermal stability and low unit to unit variation — without compromising the flexibility and configurability that are the hallmark of Ocean Optics miniature spectrometers. New features such as interchangeable slits, indicator LEDs and simple device connectors deliver more freedom and less frustration.

Whether you are an educator looking for an instrument to teach students the basic principles of spectroscopy, a research lab looking to make a breakthrough, or an engineer working to integrate a spectrometer into an OEM system, the Flame will provide you with the performance and features you need to make your UV-Vis spectroscopy application successful. 

General Product Details 

  • Modular — configurable to your application and needs within the wavelength range 190-1100 nm
  • Compatible — works with Ocean Optics light sources, accessories and software
  • Easy to use — plug and play with FIAlab software via the micro USB connection
  • User interchangeable slit — allows you to vary the resolution and throughput of the spectrometer on demand
  • Indicator LEDs — indicator of power and data transfer status at all times
  • Compact and lightweight small size and no moving parts makes it ideal for integrating with portable systems and demanding environments
  • Low Power Consumption - drawing <250mA at 5V, the Flame-NIR can be powered almost anywhere including in OEM portable and handheld devices and industrial process control environments.

Specific Models

Flame Models


FIAlab primarily utilizes the Flame-T-UV-Vis and Flame-T-Vis-NIR models of the Flame Spectrometer series. See the image here to compare various models. 

The spectrometer used varies based on the assay(s) you wish to run. 

Flame-T-UV-Vis: PN = 64018

Flame-T-NIR-Vis: PN = 64019




All Ocean Optics spectrometers are compatible with FIAlab software. This includes FIAsoft and SIAsoft.
