Top Innovation of 2015
The Q 285 is the first of its kind full frame, non-scanning, imaging spectrometer. Our technology combines the simplicity of a point-and-shoot camera with the precision of hyperspectral imaging. This VIS to near-infrared imaging spectrometer was designed having industry, laboratory and outdoor use in mind. With its IP67 certification it is especially designed for rough environments and long term stability.
The unique working principle guarantees easy access to hyperspectral images, real time processing up to hyperspectral video frame rates.
Full frame hyperspectral imaging:
The goal of our development was an easy to handle imaging spectrometer with no need for scanning (like push broom technology) or image combination after fast filter shifts. Instead of the slit of a push broom scanning device we use a spatial grid which images two dimensional data points trough the spectral apparatus onto the CCD.
Recalculation of the interwoven spatial and spectral information gives us direct access to the hyperspectral cube with every frame captured. This process takes as little as 1/1000 of a second. Thus there are no moving artifacts, no hassle with translation stages and no restrictions in speed.
All that technology was packed into a waterproof, dustproof and shock-resistant housing which guarantees long term stability and lets you use the system where you need it.
With this technology you get unique advantages above all available systems on the market, which enables absolutely new and outstanding applications.
