Specim SWIR spectral camera robust at high-resolution

Spectral information in the shortwave infrared from 1000 nm to 2500 nm is important in vegetation research, the analysis of pigments (painting analysis), in waste recycling to differentiate different types of plastic, in pharmacy to determine the contained substances and their distribution, and last but not least in food analysis (for example to determine the fat content).

As leading provider of spectral cameras, Specim have upgraded their well-established SWIR spectral camera for the shortwave infrared with the latest technology.

The main advantage compared to the predecessor is the stability of the meas­urement data even at ambient temperature changes. To achieve this, the camera optic (ImSpector) is also thermally stabilized. This is particularly handy for longer acquisitions, where a white balance with a stable reference is not possible over a longer period of time.

The new SWIR camera’s optimized signal-to-noise ratio now reaches a striking 900:1. The camera features a 16-bit dynamic range. A spectral resolution of 5.6 nm also allows the acquisition of narrower spectral distributions.

The spatial resolution is further enhan­ced by the new 384-pixel-wide detector. Since a great number of applications takes place under natural conditions, the new SWIR spectral camera was equipped with an IP54 housing. Extremely fast analyses are possible through an increase of the frame rate to 400 frames per second. This allows interpretations already within the production lines without noticeably slowing down the production process itself.
