Specim's family of hyperspectral cameras operating in the range of 900 - 1700nm. The cameras provide high resolution and high speed solutions for chemical imaging applications from moisture monitoring to food analysis and sorting applications in various recycling processes.

SPECIMĀ“s Spectral Camera is an integrated combination of an ImSpector imaging spectrograph and an area monochrome camera. It works as a push-broom type line scan camera providing full, contiguous spectral information for each pixel in the line. SPECIM offers several Spectral Camera models in the NIR range in order to meet various application requirements. They provide 320 and 640 pixel spatial resolution and image rate from 50 to 350 Hz. Each Spectral Camera NIR model consists of an ImSpector N17E imaging spectrograph for the wavelength region 900 - 1700 nm and a temperature stabilized InGaAs camera. The transmission diffraction grating and lens optics included in the spectrograph provide high light throughput and a high quality and distortionless image which is designed to meet the unique requirements of the associated detector.

The maintenance free cooling unit is
designed to keep the detector temperature stable
throughout a wide ambient temperature range.
Both a cased camera and uncased OEM
model are available. The cased camera is
equipped with an electro-mechanical shutter for
dark image acquisition. The camera housing
is designed for easy handling connectivity and
operation. The cameras are delivered with
separate power supply/control unit, frame
grabber and the necessary cables.

Applications: -
Moisture profiling
Food analysis
Chemical sorting
Pharmaceutical QA
Medical imaging
