The MSV 500 is a high performance spectral camera for demanding applications. The MSV 500 uses a 5.5 mega pixel sCMOS sensor. The sCMOS sensor has a very low noise floor, in the single electron range.
The user can select between two 12 bit amplifiers in software, one optimized for low noise applications where highest sensitivity is required or high capacity for access to the full pixel well. A 16 bit mode is available that samples each 12 bit amplifier to produce an image that combines both low noise and high dynamic range information.The sensor supports both global and rolling shutter modes. Global shutter can be critical for hyperspectral imaging of fast moving objects. The camera can achieve high frame rates, up to 100 frames per second over the full spectral window, or even higher with a reduced field of view.
