Avantes announced the release of AvaSoft version 8.7.0. The Windows-based AvaSoft software gives offers a user-friendly interface for instrument control and user-definable data collection parameters. It allows users to display and export data easily.

Version 8.7 offers several improvements and new features, including:

  • Raman module updates and bug fixes
  • Added custom dark reflectance
  • Support added for 4096 pixel CMOS detector
  • Added optional UV regions to chart
  • Added extra line in Excel export sheet, with date/time info
  • Added support for Ethernet recovery
  • Default plug-in applications were moved from separate .DLL files to main .EXE file

The AvaSoft-Raman module is available as a stand-alone application or can be added to AvaSoft-Full. This module was advanced in this update and offers spectrometer control while supporting all of the common Raman wavelengths and measuring Raman shift

Custom Dark Reflectance Settings

Custom dark reflectance settings allow the user to input their own dark correction values when using a sample standard. This zeroes the reflectance values when taking a dark reference for color measurements whereas the custom white standard designates reflectance values of 100% across the board when referencing. This will result in a dynamic range of 0% to 100% for all wavelengths.

Optional UV Regions

The “UV regions” feature shows the different UV bands in the spectrum similar to the “visible spectrum” feature which shows the colors in the plot at their respective wavelengths.
