Cubert GmbH - Tutorial
After this tutorial, you will have some basic knowledge about the setup and the procedure to create hyperspectral reflectance data. This tutorial can not replace a training, however.
Prior getting started you will need
- A readily installed Hyperspectral camera
- The camera’s lens cap
- A Spectralon a.k.a White Target
- Some natural object for test purposes (e.g. your hand)
- A broadband light source, DC mode (e.g. halogen lamp with DC power supply, or sunlight)
- Connect your camera.
- Mount your camera, e.g. on a tripod
- Point your camera at a the spectralon
- Mount your light source, point it at the spectralon.
- Try to illuminate the spectralon as evenly as possible
- Start the software Cubert Utils Touch and wait for the camera to become online
- Change integration time to “Auto-Exposure”
- Fine-tune the camera or the spectralon’s position in order to fully cover the image
- Optional: Adjust exposure compensation
- Set Averaging to at 5
- Set a white reference (Note: this disables auto-exposure)
- Put a cap on
- Set a dark reference.
- Remove cap
- Switch to reflectance mode
- Draw a rectangle in the image, verify the spectrum is at 100%
- Optional: Decrease averaging back to 1
- Measure a natural object
Congratulations! You have taken you first hyperspectral measurement in reflectance mode.
