Specim FX50 is a high-speed, accurate and efficient spectral camera specifically designed to industrial environments. It operates on MWIR region and can be used to identify and sort the difficult black plastics, analyze hydrocarbons and minerals, and detect contamination on metal surfaces quickly and reliably.

• Complete spectral camera with compact form factor
• Spectral range of 2.7 – 5.3 μm
• High spatial resolution of 640 pixels
• High image speed of 380 Hz
• Temperature stabilized optics
• Built-in image correction
• Unified spectral calibration between units
• GigE Vision standard interface
• Easy mounting to industrial environment


Specim FX50 works in a line-scan mode and collects hyperspectral data in the Medium Wavelength Infrared (MWIR) region (2.7-5.3 μm).

Full spectral range – for sorting most of the plastics

Temperature stabilized casing – to keep accurate results within a harsh industrial environment

Small – Flexible and easy installation

High frame rate – for high sorting throughput

Easy integration – communicates with commercial analysis softwares through standard interfaces

Unified, comparable data

Breakthrough in Black Plastic Sorting

Black plastics are widely used in the automotive industry, electronics, food packages, plastic bags, they can be found all around us. Unfortunately, instead of recycling, they are burned for energy or dumped to landfill, since there has not been efficient and reliable technology available to sort them. Hyperspectral imaging is the only technology that can identify black plastic types when used on MWIR spectral range.

Specim FX50 is the only hyperspectral camera available on the market covering the full MWIR spectral range 2.7 – 5.3 μm that is required with black plastics. This allows fast and reliable sorting of:

– Black plastics such as PS, PE, PP, ABS and PVC
– Certain additives, like flame retardants
– Rubbers
– Non-black plastics and rubbers
