Multispectral machine vision cameras for industrial inspection
Tesseract, a new dimension in machine vision
For decades, multi- and hyperspectral imaging have carried the promise of delivering deep insights into subjects just by pointing a camera at them. However, technological limitations have largely confined their use to laboratory settings. With the introduction of the Tesseract multi-sensor camera technology platform, the machine vision industry can now meet the needs of a wide range of inspection applications for which regular cameras fall short.
With Tesseract, you can obtain high-quality spectral information about your product at every pixel of its image without any sacrifice in resolution or measurement speed. How do we achieve this ‘impossible’ feat? With a unique and patent-pending optical technology that enables the capture of each spectral band on a separate image sensor. Up to 12 spectral bands in the visible and near-infrared, all through a single lens!
Capture a large number of spectral bands at full resolution, while retaining high speed.
The complete spectral data cube is recorded in a single opening of the global shutter.
Analyse the invisible
Sensitivity in both the visible and near-infrared spectrum to detect features invisible to regular cameras.
Acquire and transport full resolution data cubes (2D spatial + 1D spectral) at high speed.
Discern the tiniest features on your product with tens of megapixels of image data per time step.
Designed to operate and last in the harshest industrial environments.
A six-channel, 2D snapshot multispectral camera with three visible and three near-infrared bands. Optimised for inspection applications featuring products in non-linear motion, such as lane sorting of fruits and vegetables.
Single lens, multi-sensor spectral camera
VIS (R, G, B) and NIR sensitivity (730, 850, 940 nm)
High resolution (3.1 MP per spectral band)
High spectral fidelity (sharp filtering, strong blocking of other wavelengths)
High speed (50+ fps)
High sensitivity (F/2.2 optics)
High dynamic range (71 dB from Sony Pregius sensors, plus optimal exposure of each individual spectral band)
Robust industrial design
Easy integration in inspection equipment (10GigE Vision interface, compact size)
A linescan version of the Tesseract camera with six spectral channels and ~10 kHz acquisition speed is under development. This sibling of the 62D is optimised for inspection of products in linear motion, i.e. belt, freefall, web, line, and rotating cylinder applications.

We can fully adapt our cameras to your needs. Our technology platform allows customisation of the number of bands, spectral range, bandwidths, central wavelengths, acquisition speeds, and more.
If so desired, we can supply our cameras as OEM models that can be integrated in your systems with your own branding.
We have deep knowledge of spectral imaging and are happy to put it to use to support the development of your application.
We aim to build lasting relationships with our customers that maximise the benefits to both parties.
We understand that your reputation in delivering inspection standards depends on our performance.
In industry, time is money. Therefore, we are there for you to help you get up and running again, should anything go wrong.
