Specim FX Series Hyperspectral Imaging Cameras

Hyperspectral Imaging Cameras for Industrial Machine Vision 

Specim is a pioneer and world leader in hyperspectral imaging instrumentation.  With a hyperspectral imaging camera from Specim you will have spectral information at each and every pixel of your image.  All the cameras from Specim operate according to the push-broom technique, meaning that the target is imaged line by line to build up the full 2D image. Specim have instruments designed to operate in specific discrete bands across the VIS-IR spectrum (400 nm to 12 µm).

Specim’s instruments are suited for a whole host of applications including remote sensing, geology, food quality, plastic sorting, online inspection and colour measurement. Additionally, the instruments are extremely versatile, and in most cases the same camera can be configured for use in the lab, field or sky.

Specim FX cameras can be installed on existing and new sorting lines. The material identification result, pixel by pixel, is available through a standard interface to commercial machine vision systems. Data analysis results are communicated to the sorting machines, such as robot hands or air jet, through commercial machine vision solution software.

MODELS

The FX17 is a small footprint hyperspectral camera built around an InGaAs detector. It operates in the NIR spectral range (900-1700 nm). As with the FX10 camera, F/1.7 optics enables excellent light throughput, high sensitivity, short integration times and high signal-to-noise ratio. The FX17 operates with a frame rate of 670 fps (full frame) using 640 spatial pixels and 230 spectral bands. By reducing the number of spectral bands, the frame rate can be increased up to 15,000 fps. The camera is supplied with a high quality lens (38 deg FOV) and includes an integrated shutter. The camera is also IP52 rated, making it suitable for use in harsh environments.

The FX10c is a small, fast, and affordable hyperspectral camera specifically designed for colour measurement with a spectral range of 400-800 nm and a higher sensitivity in the blue when compared to other cameras. F/1.7 optics enables excellent light throughput, high sensitivity, short integration times and high signal-to-noise ratio. The FX10 operates with an impressive frame rate of 514 fps (full frame) using 1024 spatial pixels and 140 spectral bands. By reducing the number of spectral bands, the frame rate can be increased up to 9,900 fps. The camera is supplied with a high quality lens (38 deg FOV) and includes an integrated shutter and order sorting filter. The camera is also IP52 rated, making it suitable for use in harsh environments.
