MWIR spectral camera
In the medium-wave infrared (MWIR; 3 - 5 µm) band, thermal radiation of objects is used to detect and analyze their composition. Hyperspectral imaging in the MWIR provides highly interesting information, as a lot of widely-used materials have characteristic spectral signatures in this range. Specim’s MWIR spectral camera combines a high-end cooled detector based on InSb with a Specim imaging spectrograph of highest performance. The MWIR spectral camera comes with specially designed front lenses with highest transmission and low optical aberrations to ensure the best possible performance.
|Spectral band: 3 - 5 µm|
|High spectral and spatial resolution|
|High frame rate|
The MIR wavelength range allows scanning minerals and black polymers that cannot be seen in the SWIR. The system is perfectly suited for high-speed industrial or high-resolution research applications.
The MWIR spectral camera integrates a high-speed, high-resolution cooled InSb sensor with a Specim M-series imaging spectrograph. The camera is offered in two models, depending on the requirement: high frame rates or high spatial resolution. The M640 model is based on a 640 x 512 pixel InSb detector with a spectral sampling of 8.33 nm/pixel. The 640 pixel-wide axis is used as spatial axis. The camera runs either with 240 fps or 120 fps. The wide range of exposure times from 1 µs to 120 ms allows applications with high or low intensities and long integration times.
Camera model M320 features the advantages of a 320*256 InSb detector. In a windowing mode, it runs with either a rate of 380 full frames per second or 800 frames per second. The spectral sampling is 16.67 nm/pixel. Both camera models boast a high spectral resolution of 35nm.
