Senop launches a next generation fast and high resolution Hyperspectral Camera

Senop will launch a new hyperspectral camera Senop HSC-2 at the Photonics West 2019 exhibition in San Francisco on February 5-7. Senop HSC-2 is the new reference in the evolution of Hyperspectral imaging.

The new HSC-2 is a result of long experience from 1st generation Rikola hyperspectral camera and based on state of the art Fabry Perot Interferometer technology. FPI technology provides unrivalled benefits when fast global shutter type of true pixel images are in question.

The HSC-2 can take up to 149 spectral frames per second and up to 1000 freely selectable narrow bands in true pixels without any interpolation.

– Our clear target was to take a leap in the hyperspectral technology and create a golden standard to be used in any research fields or commercial applications where the data quality and quantity is determinant, says Aki Korhonen, Senop’s CEO.

– We managed to achieve our goal and HSC-2 is a versatile tool providing a revolutionary value no matter it’s used for example in smart agriculture with moving UAV’s or stand alone application like food industry or medical surgeries.

– Past couple of years the interest and awareness to use hyperspectral data has been increased heavily amongst the researchers and even more in commercial sector. With HSC-2 camera we are proud to provide the best tool and help them create a better world, says Matti Rautiainen, Senop’s sales director.
