MULTISPECTRAL IMAGING SYSTEM
The MSMC-2-2 is a multispectral imaging system incorporating two multispectral cameras into a single housing. Each multispectral camera has its own lens and views the scene (object) through a beam splitter. The beam splitter enables each camera to observe the same scene without parallax artifacts. Both cameras are USB3 Vision and GenICam compliant offering many options for image acquisition software, SDKs and OS platforms. The system is supplied with Windows-based 2ndLook software providing easy setup and simultaneous recording of images from both cameras. Both cameras come hardwired in a master slave arrangement allowing one camera to trigger the other. This ensures simultaneous image capture on both cameras. Each camera can have independent exposure settings to accommodate differences in sensitivity of each camera. The cameras and beam splitter are mounted on 3-degree of freedom (DOF) stages enabling simple alignment of the beam splitter and each camera to the scene (object) using an Allen key after removal of the lid. Power is provided to each camera through the USB3 interface. The housing is constructed from thick aluminum for stability and hard anodized for durability. The housing is dust-proof and splash-proof.
