Specim OWL LWIR Spectral Camera
Cryogenically-cooled MCT detector for the 8-12µm thermal range
The OWL camera from Specim covers the LWIR spectral range (8-12 µm). The OWL uses a cryogenically-cooled MCT detector and has 384 spatial pixels. The OWL benefits from a high number of spectral bands, high spectral resolution, fast frame rate and temperature stabilised optics. It is also commonly used in airborne applications.

What’s Really in Your Meat?
Raw meat, poultry and fish have a high risk of quality issues and contamination, and reliable meat inspection process is a necessity to guarantee that the products are high quality, safe and in compliance with the strict safety requirements.
Remote Sensing In Agriculture
Remote sensing is a term commonly used to describe a setting where information is acquired from a distance. During the last few years a tremendous increase has been seen in the use of unmanned airborne vehicles (UAVs) for data acquisition in agriculture. Hyperspectral cameras are seeing increased use in this field as they enable the detection of phenomena that are difficult or impossible to detect using other remote sensing techniques.
Wide product variety, high manufacturing speed and quality requirements in the baked goods industry calls for a flexible solution that can transfer from one product to another. Hyperspectral imaging plays an important role where traditional color, spectral or x-ray cameras cannot provide a full solution. The non-invasive technology gives results without touching the goods and can detect contamination or foreign objects, moisture, chemical composition, or color with unmatched accuracy and detail, improving quality and reducing waste and costs.
Sorting With Specim FX Cameras
Specim FX cameras enable you to add precise and reliable chemical identification to your vision and sorting systems. Compared to traditional color and shape-based sorting, chemical identification will increase the value in the sorting results in many cases, like waste processing and recycling, food and feed and agricultural product processing, and the mining industry.
Know Your Fruits, Berries and Vegetables – Make Right Sorting Decisions
Specim FX cameras can reveal much more than traditional color and filter cameras or point spectrometers. Hyperspectral imaging can be used to detect blemishes and bruising under the skin of fruits, define ripeness and chemical quality independent of the fruit color and size, and find and remove foreign materials like plastic, wood, paper, metal, or insects when sorting fruit in a production line.
Inspecting Heat Sealed Packages
Good seals can only be made on clean material: any contamination between the seal and the package is no longer airtight. As a result, air and contaminants such as molds, fungus or bacteria can enter the package and ruin the product well before the expiration date. It is crucial that the incomplete seams and leaking packages are found already on the production line. Hyperspectral imaging is the only imaging method that reliably finds the imperfect seals through the sealing film, even when the package is printed.
Art Conservation and Analysis
Advances in technology are changing the world of art and cultural heritage investigation, and hyperspectral imaging has found its place there. With imaging technology, there is no risk of damaging the works of art: it is a non-invasive and safe way to collect data from paintings and manuscripts.
Food Fraud Detection
Minimize the risk of food fraud, protect your customers as well as your brand reputation and ensure food authenticity with hyperspectral imaging. It is a quick and reliable way to check food quality and safety on the spot.
