We have constructed a simple interface which allows a computer to collect spectral data from and control the wavelength setting of a Cary 118C spectrophotometer. The interface is compatible with most types of computers; the computer need not be located near the spectrophotometer. Programs to operate the spectrophotometer can be written in high-level languages such as fortran or basic.
