Specim Spectral Imaging launches hyperspectral camera for industrial machine vision
Finnish hyperspectral camera manufacturer Specim Spectral Imaging has released the Specim GX17 next-generation near-infrared line-scan hyperspectral camera for industrial machine vision applications.
The Specim GX17 features a maximum frame rate of 800Hz with 480 spatial pixels, which the firm says is 50% more than conventional QVGA sensor-based hyperspectral cameras.
Operating in the near-infrared wavelength range from 950 to 1700nm, the Specim GX17 can assess object details down to 1mm square flakes that are invisible to the human eye.
The high spatial resolution and frame rate enable the detection of objects on conveyor belts and free-fall systems moving at high speed.
The Specim GX17 camera can be controlled with the machine vision-compliant SpecimONE spectral imaging system, Specim Spectral Imaging says, which enables the development of industrial sorting and inspection applications without in-depth knowledge of spectral imaging and enables fast time-to-market.
