Tunable, MultiSpectral LED Line Light with up to 12 wavelengths

COBRA™ MultiSpec multispectral LED line light has been designed to deliver tunable multispectral light allowing you to optimize image acquisition. Offering discrete control of up to twelve wavelengths from 365nm to 1700nm via an intuitive graphical user interface, you can maximize contrast by choosing the optimum spectral profile and providing more intensity at specific wavelengths to suit your application needs.

COBRA MultiSpec delivers multispectral tunable illumination allowing users to optimize the spectrum to maximize contrast, compensate for camera sensitivity, and deliver clearer, higher resolution images for increased accuracy and speed. Precise control of the light via its user-friendly GUI allows system designers to easily fine-tune the performance of their system. Discrete control of each wavelength allows users to select the optimum wavelength balancing and relative intensities specific to the application needs.

New Hyperspectral LED Line Light

Successful hyperspectral imaging requires careful wavelength selection to cover the required spectrum and homogenous light to ensure high quality imaging. ProPhotonix has recently launched a new hyperspectral version of the COBRA MultiSpec with a spectral range from 400nm – 1000 nm and excellent spatial and spectral uniformity, an ideal solution for hyperspectral applications.

The COBRA MultiSpec 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 spectra 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 the highly compact and flexible Specim FX10 (see chart), for example, or any hyperspectral line scan camera operating in the visible to near-infrared spectrum. For applications covering an extended spectrum, the COBRA MultiSpec can be developed in configurations of up to twelve wavelengths from 365nm –1700nm and the spectral output balanced to any customer-specified camera.

RGB-IR and RGB-White LED Line Lights

RGB-IR (855nm) and RGB-White (3500K) COBRA MultiSpec line lights are now available as standard, offering ideal solutions for a wide variety of multispectral and hyperspectral applications including food sorting and currency inspection. Custom lights of up to 12 wavelengths from 365nm – 1700nm can also be delivered.

Wavelengths from 365nm to 1700nm

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

Exceptional Strobe Capability

To enable rapid data acquisition and analysis, COBRA MultiSpec’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).

Built on the established COBRA Slim platform

COBRA MultiSpec is built on the established, compact COBRA Slim platform and utilizes Chip-on-Board LED technology to ensure extreme brightness and excellent uniformity. In addition, COBRA MultiSpec offers field adjustable optics allowing users to select the optimum lens position for its application. COBRA MultiSpec is modular and is available in any length up to 5 meters.
