New hyperspectral light source offers excellent spatial and spectral uniformity

28-01-2021 | ProPhotonix | New Technologies

ProPhotonix Limited has added a new hyperspectral LED line light to its COBRA MultiSpec platform. With a spectral range from 400-1000nm and superior spatial and spectral uniformity, this new option offers an exceptional solution for hyperspectral applications.


Successful hyperspectral imaging needs careful wavelength selection to cover the necessary spectrum and homogenous light to assure high-quality imaging. The company has developed this hyperspectral line light as an excellent light source for any hyperspectral line scan camera working in the visible to near-infrared spectrum. The spectrum is well-matched to the extremely compact and flexible Specim FX10, for example, or machine vision cameras employing the latest SONY IMX174 Sensor. For applications covering an extended-spectrum, the COBRA MultiSpec can be developed in configurations of up to twelve wavelengths from 365nm –1700nm.

The new solution provides for hyperspectral applications including currency inspection, grading and analysis, pharmaceutical analysis, food sorting, recycling and print inspection.






Simon Stanley, director of Technology at ProPhotonix (IRL), said: “We are pleased to offer this new hyperspectral option of our COBRA MultiSpec platform. Hyperspectral imaging is advancing rapidly, and this product launch enables our customers to access the latest in LED technology. Customers can work with our expert engineering team to select the exact spectrum. Users can further optimise for the application via the user-friendly GUI. Custom configurations can be developed for virtually any hyperspectral application.”
