MWIR spectral camera

FX 50 from SPECIM

In the medium-wave infrared (MWIR; 2,7 – 5,3 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 FX50 MWIR spectral camera combines a high-end cooled detector based on InSb with a Specim imaging spectrograph of highest performance. The FX50 MWIR spectral camera comes with specially designed front lenses with highest transmission and low optical aberrations to ensure the best possible performance.

  • Spectral band: 2,7 – 5,3 µm
  • High spectral and spatial resolution
  • High frame rate of 380 Hz Full frame
  • Higher frame rates in windowing mode
  • High sensitivity
  • Compact and robust

Further information

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 FX50 MWIR spectral camera integrates a high-speed, high-resolution cooled InSb sensor with a high transmissive imaging spectrograph. The camera offers a high frame rate of 380 frames per second. Even higher frame rates can be achieved limiting the number of spectral bands. FX50 is based on a cooled InSb detector with a spectral sampling of 8.44 nm/pixel in 640 spatial pixels and 154 spectral bands. The optics are temperature stabilized by a TEC cooler in ordert o guarantee constant high performance when looking at hot objects.

FX50 follows IP 40 standard to ensure usability under industrial conditions.
