"Handy hyperspectral Device" for Easy Collection of Two-dimensional Spectral Data

JFE-TEC's handy hyper-imaging spectroscope allows you to collect two-dimensional spectral information of the observation object "on the spot" without having to relocate the object.

Compact, lightweight, and portable, this spectroscope offers greater measurement flexibility than the traditional stationary types, and therefore is suitable for a wide range of uses in many areas and situations.

Overview

The traditional hyper-imaging spectroscopes are of a stationary type to be installed in laboratories, which cannot be brought close to an observation object for measurement.

There have been, however, high needs for bringing a spectroscope near an observation object for collection of two-dimensional spectral information, meaning that handy, portable hyper-imaging spectroscopes have been demanded.

With many years of involvement in the development and sale of devices based on two-dimensional spectroscopes, we have successfully developed a compact, lightweight portable hyper-imaging device without degrading the measurement accuracy and stability required for collecting hyper-imaging spectral data.

As a handy measuring device, you can use it, for example, to collect two-dimensional spectral data of stems and leaves of plants in a place inhabited by plants without damaging them.

In the fields of medical care and beauty culture, the device reduces the burden on subjects during measurement of the human body such as a skin because it not only minimizes the need for subjects to keep undue postures but also finishes measurements in a short time, which does not force them to keep postures for a long time.

Features of the Handy Hyper-imaging Spectroscope

Compact, Lightweight Design with Excellent Portability

The sensor head is compact and lightweight with a length of approximately 300 mm and a weight of 600 g.

The device uses a camera connectable to laptop PCs. This means that all you need for measurement is a hyper-imaging spectral camera, which acts as the sensor head, and a laptop PC, providing excellent portability.

Selectable Spectral Wavelength Ranges

The device is available in two types with different spectral wavelength ranges: 380 to 800 nm and 400 nm to 1,000 nm. They provide wavelength resolutions of 6 nm and 9 nm, respectively.

Two Different Measurement Modes Available

You can select from two different measurement modes to collect hyper-imaging spectral data.

One is the "high-resolution mode", which provides 1,392 pixels along the visual field width and measurements at a rate of approximately 40 frames per second.

The other is the "high-speed mode', which provides 696 pixels along the visual field width and measurements at a rate of approximately 80 frames per second.

Spatial Resolution Adjustable According to the Purpose

The spatial resolution depends on the distance to the object and the lens type. The camera uses a C mount connectable to a variety of lenses, allowing you to obtain an optimal spatial resolution according to the purpose.

In addition, you can easily bring the main unit in hand, allowing you to adjust the distance to the object with ease.

Example of Measurement Objects
