JAI's 2-CCD multi-spectral cameras provide simultaneous images of different light spectrums through a single optical path. For example, JAI's AD-080 series splits incoming light into two separate channels - a visible color channel from 400-700nm and a near infrared (NIR) channel from 750-900+nm. This makes it possible to simultaneously inspect surface properties or printing, as well as sub-surface defects or other information which is optimally detected at NIR wavelengths.
Multi-spectral imaging technology allows users to replace multiple inspection stations with a single setup, providing both ease of use and lower equipment and maintenance costs. The cameras are ideal for inspecting currency, checks, textiles, plastics, circuit boards, and organic items such as fruit and vegetables.
