GX17 Image

Specim GX17 is a high-speed push-broom hyperspectral camera operating in the NIR spectral range (950 – 1700 nm).

The GX17 identifies objects that are invisible to the human eye on conveyor belts and free fall systems moving at high speed. It is a powerful and accurate tool for inline sorting, inspection, and quality control and offers the best cost–performance ratio in high volumes.

The GX17 features 50% more pixels compared to conventional QVGA (320 px) sensor-based HSI cameras. The high spatial resolution, light-throughput and signal quality make Specim GX17 the most high-performing hyperspectral camera in it's class!
