Applications

Advantages for Applications using opportunities of Hyperspectral Imaging

  • Precise - Improves vision and discrimination power by using spectral signature information of surface material / object being captured
  • Genuine HSI camera with USB 3.0 - Fabry-Perrot filters fully integrated on CMOS pixels, thus no alignment is required and no stray light issues
  • Robust - Sturdy full metal jacket, no sheet metal covers
  • Smallest - Fits into places where no other Hyperspectral camera can fit
  • Lightweight - Facilitates increased performance of robotic arms and gimbals or UAV
  • Efficient - Low power consumption and heat dissipation. With flat ribbon flex cable ideal for Embedded solutions
  • Informative - datacubes of information about chemical composition of the object help to discover details that standard visual cameras can not
  • Economical - Removes the need of bulky constructions and accessories saving energy and space at better prices
