The Specim FX series consists of three models: the Specim FX10, Specim FX17, and Specim FX50. These highly reliable hyperspectral cameras cover wavelengths from visible and near-infrared (VNIR) to Medium Wavelength Infrared (MWIR). They are suitable for both laboratory and high-speed industrial machine vision applications due to their high frame rate, robust design, and ease of integration.

Specim FX Series – Hyperspectral Imaging Camera

The Specim FX series comprises three highly versatile hyperspectral cameras designed to cater to a wide range of laboratory/research and industrial applications. These cutting-edge cameras are not only capable of capturing high-speed images but also serve as invaluable tools in the field of machine vision and optical sorting. Their non-contact and non-destructive measurement capabilities make them perfect for assessing and analyzing the physical or chemical composition of a wide range of targets. By utilizing the advanced line scanning (pushbroom) technique, the Specim FX series ensures accurate and reliable results. The Specim FX series stands out with its impressive frame rate, catering to the demanding requirements of industrial applications. Furthermore, their robust design and compact footprint make them incredibly easy to install, seamlessly integrating into existing machine vision or sorting systems.

The Specim FX Series hyperspectral cameras comprised the following three models, the Specim FX10, the Specim FX17, and the Specim FX50.

The Specim FX10 hyperspectral camera is designed to measure the visible and near-infrared (VNIR) spectral region, specifically ranging from 400 to 1000 nm. This versatile camera is well-suited for various laboratory and industrial applications, including:

• Agriculture and vegetation, facilitating phenotyping processes

• Ensuring food quality and safety

• Assessment of color and density in printing

• Inspection of displays and light sources

The Specim FX17 hyperspectral camera captures high-quality hyperspectral data in the near-infrared (NIR) spectral range of 900 to 1700 nm. It is ideally designed for a wide range of laboratory and industrial applications, including:

• Ensuring food and feed quality and safety.

• Enhancing waste sorting and plastic recycling processes.

• Moisture measurement.

The Specim FX50 hyperspectral camera is a specialized imaging instrument designed to facilitate measurements within the Medium Wavelength Infrared (MWIR) spectral range spanning from 2.7 μm to 5.3 μm. Its advanced features make it an ideal choice for a myriad of industrial applications, ranging from black plastic sorting and metal analysis to geology and mining.
