Announcing the first industrial MWIR spectral camera

For: sorting problem materials, detecting contamination on metal surfaces, hydrocarbon and mineral analysis... and more

The difference between RBG cameras and hyperspectral cameras - essentially, much more information from the latter
RGB cameras record electromagnetic radiation in the visible light spectrum between 400 – 700 nm - the same as can the human eye.

Hyerpsectral cameras, however, are sensitive to the same range but also to electromagnetic radiation on either side of this range - from ultra-violet to near-infra-red; wavelengths that are invisible to the human eye.

The amount of wavelengths captured depends on the type of hyperspectral cameras being used, but by combining different wavelengths, the camera is able to process different qualities in the target. Consequently, hyperspectral cameras measure the target in every wavelength in its hyperspectral range, creating a full spectrum in each pixel of the target which is useful for analysis, detection and identification of various materials and compounds. And all achieved with just one measurement.
About Specim FX50 MWIR hyperspectral camera
Specim's FX50 MWIR hyperspectral camera is a compact, high-speed, accurate and efficient spectral camera specifically designed for industrial environments. Currently, the most compact and rugged MWIR spectral camera on the market

Operating in the MWIR region, the FX50 can be used, among other things, to identify and sort difficult black plastics (reliably), analyze hydrocarbons and minerals in dark samples, and detect contamination on metal surfaces, quickly and reliably. The camera's fast optics are highly sensitve and capture good signals with short integration times. An MWIR light source is available.

Easy to integrate and retrofit into existing systems and compatible with commercial machine vision software goods, the camera can be intgrated into an existing software solution with Specim's SDK control protocol.
Benefits of hyperspectral imaging  
• Provides much more information than do RGB cameras • The only reliable way to sort black plastics as MWIR light penetrates deeper in dark materials
• Differentiates between different materials • Identifies material characteristics

• Identifies black ABS plastic as its spectral region extends up to 5300 nm

• Determines material composition
