Many of our spectrometers can be supplied with electronics that converts the analogue signal from the detector to a digital signal that can be read over e.g. USB. Your electronics options depend on the specific detector and spectrometer you are working with. In most cases, you basically have two software options; Use the Ibsen Evaluation Software for Windows or develop your own.I want to use Ibsen’s Evaluation

Evaluation Software for Windows
Ibsen’s evaluation software can be used to read, display and store spectra from your spectrometer and to configure various parameters.
The specific evaluation software you need depends on which detector your spectrometer is equipped with. The detector is given by the three digits in the product name. For example, the FREEDOM FSV-101 uses the CMOS S11639 detector (101).
Below you can find links to download the relevant evaluation software. You will need to get a password from your sales representative.
EAGLE OCT-S EOS-121
A wide range of our spectrometers is also supported by the Spectragryph software. Spectragryph allows control and spectral acquisition of all our PEBBLE and FREEDOM spectrometers using the DISB series of electronics, as well as the EAGLE Raman-S spectrometer using the Andor iVac camera. The many functions of Spectragryph cover many different spectra processing needs. Visit the spectroscopy.ninja for more information about this software.
Develop your own software
If you want to develop your own application software, we offer a command based software development kit for most of our spectrometers. The specific command structure depends on the spectrometer that you have as described below.
Uncooled spectrometers XXX-101/105/109/305/315/380
These spectrometers are using the DISB electronics with either a SPI or USB interface. The communication with the spectrometer can be done using low level read-write commands to the FPGA on the board.
If your spectrometer is equipped with the DISB-USB Bridge electronics with the FT4222 chip, you can find some software programming examples here.
If your spectrometer is equipped with the old Diolan SPI-USB adapter, you can find some software programming examples here.
Uncooled spectrometers XXX-200/220
These spectrometers are using the VersaPic electronics with a USB interface. The communication with the spectrometer can be done using serial RS-232 like commands.
If your spectrometer is equipped with the VersaPic electronics, you can find some software programming examples here.
Cooled spectrometers XXX-392/420/445/465
These spectrometers are using the VersaPic electronics with a USB interface as well as a TE cooling controller board. The communication with the spectrometer can be done using serial RS-232 like commands.
EAGLE Raman-S ENS-C316
This spectrometer is using the Andor iVac 316 camera with a USB 2.0 connection. It can be integrated with MatLab, LabView, Visual Basic or C/C++.
If your spectrometer is equipped with the Andor iVac camera, you can find some software programming examples here.
EAGLE OCT-S EOS-121
This spectrometer is using Teledyne’s E2V OctoPlus camera with CameraLink or USB 3 interface. The communication with the camera is based on the RS-232 protocol.
