Configurable across a continuous broad spectrum

The COBRA HyperSpec offers hyperspectral tunable illumination for optimal image acquisition. Discrete control of up to 12 different wavelengths allows for the creation of a broad spectrum with excellent uniformity and high-quality imaging. Hyperspectral imaging requires specific wavelength selection in order to generate a broad and homogenous spectrum of light.  The COBRA HyperSpec offers high-resolution illumination across a broad spectrum by utilizing customizable chip-on-board technology. LEDs can be boosted at any wavelength to optimize for any application.  Users can discretely control up to twelve different wavelengths. This allows for balancing intensities, matching a camera’s sensitivity curve or countering for light deficiencies with a camera sensor thus providing a continuous broad spectrum.

Designed and Optimized for Camera Sensitivity

Each wavelength has different efficiencies so wavelengths should be driven at different currents in order to achieve low peak-to-valley ratios and a broad spectral band. The COBRA HyperSpec can allow for a flatter, camera-weighted spectrum (see black line on chart opposite), which can be simulated when taking into account the camera’s spectral response. The hyperspectral light source has been designed and balanced to compensate for the sensitivity curve of machine vision cameras utilizing the latest SONY IMX174 Sensor.

The spectrum is well matched to most color cameras from leading camera manufacturers such as Specim, JAI, Teledyne Dalsa and Basler or any hyperspectral line scan camera operating in the visible to near-infrared spectrum. For applications covering an extended spectrum, the COBRA HyperSpec can be developed in configurations of up to twelve wavelengths from 365nm –1700nm and the spectral output balanced to any customer-specified camera.


New COBRA HyperSpec SWIR 2.0 Line Light

ProPhotonix has recently launched the new COBRA HyperSpec SWIR 2.0. With 11 wavelengths from 950nm to 1750nm, the new SWIR hyperspectral line light provides an ideal solution for any analysis requiring SWIR hyperspectral lighting for image acquisition.

The new COBRA HyperSpec SWIR 2.0 offers a fuller and flatter spectrum allowing users the flexibility to work over the entire spectral range and providing a market-leading signal-to-noise ratio across the entire spectrum. The COBRA platform utilizes adjustable optics which guarantees best-in-class spectral uniformity and coupled with a variety of diffuser options, the line light has the flexibility to be used across a wide variety of applications.

The new SWIR hyperspectral line light is configurable to your application needs and with more than two decades of experience developing machine vision lighting for specific applications, ProPhotonix is well positioned to help you get the most from your SWIR hyperspectral imaging application.

Uniformity and Strobe Capability across a Broad Spectrum

To enable rapid data acquisition and analysis, COBRA HyperSpec’s exceptional strobe capability allows multispectral strobe patterns to be configured, and up to four optically independent strobe lines pulsed either simultaneously or sequentially with a combined delay and response time of less than one microsecond (1μs).

UV, Visible & IR wavelengths are available along with a wide range of optical options to ensure the optimum illumination for your application. COBRA HyperSpec is available in wavelengths from 365nm – 1700nm and available in configurations from two to twelve wavelengths in a compact form factor.

Custom lights of up to 12 wavelengths from 365nm – 1700nm can also be delivered across hyperspectral applications including food sorting and currency inspection.
