EVK presents Helios EQ32, a new hyperspectral imaging system with integrated real-time analytics

The new Hyperspectral Imaging System Helios EQ32 from EVK convinces as a spatially resolved real-time measurement system with powerful data processing and high-precision signal processing for analytical, industrial applications.

Helios EQ32, a measuring system specially designed for industrial working conditions, has been created in close cooperation with partners from the mechanical and plant engineering industry. Due to the stable optomechanical design for real industrial temperature conditions, machine designs and fields of application, as well as data processing and algorithms specially developed for analytics, Helios EQ32 enables an optimized analysis directly in the process line.

Dr. Matthias Kerschhaggl, Head of Development and Research at EVK, explains: “With Helios EQ32 we bring the laboratory directly into the processing line. Building on our many years of experience in industrial image processing, we have created a system that enables completely new applications in quantitative analysis and at the same time is fully usable in the processing line due to features such as real-time capability and industrial robustness. Dr Kerschhaggl adds: “This enables our customers to solve difficult or yet unsolved analytical tasks. The range of applications extends, for example, from the detection of amygdalin content in almonds to the determination of production-relevant parameters such as calorific value and moisture in refuse-derived fuels.

The workflow in which the system is configured, chemometric models are created and transferred with the help of the EVK software SQALAR, is seamless. The evaluation takes place completely in the Helios EQ32 system, whereby no external evaluation systems are required. However, a connection to already existing evaluation systems is easily possible via GigE Vision/GenICam and CameraLink. Helios EQ32 is equipped with 312 effective pixels spatial resolution, measures in the wavelength range of 930 – 1700nm and scans with a frame rate of 446Hz full frame.

Customers are supported by the EVK Professional Services team from application development to the fully integrated Helios EQ32 system on-site. EVK thus enables the integration of state-of-the-art real-time analysis systems in the shortest possible time in order to successfully equip processing lines for the future and thus exploit the full potential of the applications. EVK’s Helios EQ32 will be officially presented for the first time from May 7th to May 10th, 2019 at Control Messe in Stuttgart, Germany, in Hall 8, Booth 8105.
