New Hyperspectral Imaging Camera

POSTED 07/08/2016

MV1-D2048x1088-HS03-96-G2With the rapid growth of customers evaluating hyperspectral imaging technologies, Photonfocus broadens its portfolio by adding the new MV1-D2048x1088-HS03-96-G2 model. The MV1-D2048x1088-HS03-96-G2 implements a hyperspectral area sensor with a 4 x 4 pixel pattern with a spectral range of 470-620nm is covered in 10nm steps with a filter half width of 15nm. For NIR applications, the Photonfocus currently offer the MV1-D2048x1088-HS02-96-G2 model with a 5 x 5 pattern and spectral range of 600-975nm.

The hyperspectral line scan camera MV1-D2048x1088-HS04-96-G2 is in development and will support applications in the VIS/NIR spectral range of 470-900nm with 150 filter bands. Our current MV1-D2048x1088-HS01-96-G2 model covers NIR requirements with a spectral range of 600-1000nm and 100 filter bands.

The Photonfocus hyperspectral cameras are based on IMEC hyperspectral imaging sensors. To ease system integration, the cameras feature a GigE Vision interface. A shaft encoder interface allows precise synchronization of the cameras with the motion of the objects, critical when using line scan hyperspectral cameras.

For higher frame rate applications, the hyperspectral camera models can be configured with a variety of high speed interfaces offered by other Photonfocus camera platforms. OEM module versions of the hyperspectral cameras are available to support embedded solutions.

Photonfocus and their extensive worldwide sales network are available to discuss your requirements, choose the right camera model, choose the right software and quickly help you benefit from using these products in your application.
