Imspector

ImSpector is a direct sight imaging spectrograph that can be quickly combined with a camera to form a spectral camera. Compared to conventional color cameras and other filter-based imaging systems, ImSpector produces full continuous spectral information with high quality spectral and spatial resolution.

  • Wavelength ranges between 380 - 1000 nm
  • High spectral resolution
  • Long spatial image width
  • Input through C-mount objective lens or multi-channel fiber optics
  • Optional shutter

Overview

ImSpector is a direct sight imaging spectrograph that can be quickly combined with a camera to form a spectral camera. Compared to conventional color cameras and other filter-based imaging systems, ImSpector produces full continuous spectral information with high quality spectral and spatial resolution.

Both ImSpector Standard and Enhanced series are suited for industrial and scientific applications that require rapid and precise spectral measurements for a low cost.
