SPECIM’s new SWIR SpeCam high-speed hyperspectral camera in the SWIR range (1000 – 2500 nm) has more spatial pixels (384) and still achieves much faster image rates up to 400 frames per second using CameraLink connection. With its temperature stabilized optics; it provides the stability and sensitivity required in today’s most challenging near-infrared chemical imaging applications, from pharmaceutical quality assurance to food and agriculture analysis.

To assure indoor/outdoor usage in varying conditions it now has rugged weather-proof IP54 casing and temperature stabilized optics, but still uses less power than before, only 50W nominal. The detector’s high sensitivity and stability are kept even for long measurement runs as the detector is cooled, as well as the spectrograph in front. This makes SPECIM’s new SWIR high-speed hyperspectral camera the perfect solution for applications where there is little or no interaction with the user over long periods of time. 384 spatial pixels allow a wide field-of-view for the cost-effective acquisition of wide scenes. A broad range of dedicated interchangeable front lenses allows acquisitions in the macro range (with 1:1 macro lens), in standard laboratory sizes and in long-range applications. By default, the camera runs at 400 Hz full frame. Faster acquisitions are possible in the “windowing” mode. The camera features a 16-bit dynamic range to cover different brightness levels in just one image. Exposure times of 100 ns-to-20 ms makes it suitable for a wide range of applications and reduce the need for artificial illumination.

 

Target applications include:

  • Chemical and material sorting
  • Pharmaceutical manufacture
  • Recycling
  • Mineral mapping
  • Food and agriculture
  • Moisture content distribution
  • Art research and archiving
  • Forensics

Specifications

450 fps (maximum full frame)

Accessories

SPECIM provides various accessories for the Spectral Cameras to broaden their applicability:

  • Fore objective lenses, specifically designed for optimized performance in 900-2500 nm.
  • Fiber optics with collection lenses or SMA connectors: from 4 to 110 input channels in one spectrometer without a moving multiplexer.
  • Various scanning systems: mirror scanner on rotary stage for scanning static target and outdoor scenes, and X-stage sample mover for desktop and microscope applications.

 

Aquisition Software

SPECIM Spectral Camera SWIR is supported by Lumo software, which allows for:

  • data acquisition and saving data in the hard disk
  • setting camera parameters
  • image visualization in real time
  • control of scanner systems

Datacubes are saved in non-proprietary ENVI, Matlab and R compatible format that allows further image processing with several commercial software packages. SPECIM can also provide SDK for quick and efficient application development.
