Specim FX series




The Specim FX series of hyperspectral imagers currently consists of three robust hyperspectral cameras that offer a range of features which are suited to industrial imaging applications.

The FX camera series produce images with intensity measurements at hundreds of wavelengths for every pixel to provide a non-destructive measurement of a target's chemical composition.

The cameras are easily integrated and can be installed on new and existing sorting, inspection and production lines. The spectral signature of every pixel can be analysed in real time with Chemical Imaging software also available from Adept Turnkey. The final chemical imaging result can then be used to measure, classify and detect and provide a high level of quality control.

The FX series offer high spatial and spectral resolution comparable to that of research cameras but at a price point affordable for machine builders.

An impressive characteristic of the FX series is the Multiple Region Of Interest (MROI) feature which allows users to focus on specific areas of the objects being inspected that bear the most significance. The MROI areas can be adjusted on the go and are flexibly selected. Used effectively, the MROI feature can reduce data and increase speeds significantly.




Application Case Study - Fruit and Vegetable Inspection
The FX series cameras are used for a wide variety of product inspection tasks including the inspection and grading of fruit and vegetables. Packing houses require robust, fast and accurate sensors to fit to their automated packing lines and the ability to non-destructively image a product for its chemical makeup gives them a valuable tool to guarantee quality to their customers.

FX series cameras can detect blemishes and bruising under the skin, define ripeness and chemical quality independent of the fruit color and size and find foreign materials like plastic, wood, paper, metal, or insects. Specim FX cameras can reveal much more than traditional color and filter cameras or point spectrometers. They allow a producer to achieve better quality, ripe products with optimized shelf life, and reduce loss and waste.
