Software Issues:
Why is the maximum sample time for a spectrometer set at 1000 milliseconds?
Does Logger Pro support Ocean Optics Spectrometers on a 64-bit Windows system?
Why are there blank data table cells in my spectrometer absorbance data?
My spectrometer is connected to a computer and I get the error message, "Could not collect values from device," during calibration.
My UV-VIS Spectrometer is not working properly. It won't calibrate or it is not reporting across the proper wavelength range?
How can I overlay two emission spectra graphs in Logger Pro?
How can I display both Absorbance and % Transmittance, from Spectrometer measurements, in Logger Pro 3?
I collected Absorbance data and then Fluorescence data (or emission data) with my spectrometer. I am now collecting Absorbance data again and my data does not look correct.
Is there a way to toggle on/off the colored background behind the absorbance spectrum graph?
Ocean Optics spectrometers fail to connect to a computer running Logger Pro for Windows (Windows 8,8.1,or 10).

Do you have labs written for your spectrophotometers?
Can I do blackbody experiments with the Vernier or Ocean Optics Spectrometers?
Do you have a spectrometer that can measure DNA concentration and purity?
Can I use my spectrometer to collect data at one wavelength (kinetics or Beer's law)?
How do I get an A260/A280 value with your UV-VIS spectrometers in Logger Pro?
Why is the absorbance reading on my device (spectrometer/colorimeter) unstable or nonlinear at values above 1.0?
Can I have my spectrometer capture full wavelength spectra episodically?
Do you have instructions on how to use a spectrophotometer to conduct the Photosynthesis lab?
Why can't I see better Hydrogen emission lines with my spectrometer?

Specs are different for each Spectrometer. See:

     In Absorbance mode? Yes.
     In Emission mode? No.

-Calibration process for Absorbance mode: Use a USB cable to connect the Spectrometer to a computer. Run Logger Pro 3.6 (or newer). Select Calibrate from the Experiment menu. Follow the instructions in the Calibrate dialog box.
