SOC710 Series®

HYPERSPECTRAL IMAGING SYSTEM

Designed to eliminate the need for scanning stages during lab and field research, the SOC710 Series® is the most user friendly, versatile hyperspectral imager yet.

A NEW TYPE OF LINE SCANNER

Unique Internal Scanning Mechanism for Unrivaled Versatility and Portability

Traditional line scanning hyperspectral imaging systems (or “push broom” systems) require a translation stage to move target samples in front of the camera, which necessitates multiple stages or additional hardware to perform varied lab and field experimental setups.

With the SOC710-VP the sensor moves behind the lens and the scanning speed or translation rate is intimately tied into the exposure and gain parameters of the system. External scanning systems require the operator to calculate this manually in order to properly set the rate of the stage to obtain optimal results.

Built-in scanning makes the 710-VP extremely versatile. By eliminating the restrictions of external translation stages the SOC710-VP can, as a single package, operate from any standard tripod, C-Mount microscope, remote sensing tower, or simply be placed on a bench in the lab.

The SOC710-VP’s small footprint and lack of external stage hardware makes it very portable and the best choice for applications benefited by in-situ field data collection. The precision mechanism of the SOC710- VP’s internal scanner ensures that multiple cubes measured of the same target are in perfect registration.
