Benchtop Hyperspectral Imaging Systems


Resonon's benchtop systems are completely integrated turnkey solutions ready for immediate use. The system includes hyperspectral imaging camera, mounting tower, lighting, scanning stage, power supply, and SpectrononPro control software. Benchtop systems can be fitted with any of Resonon's hyperspectral imaging cameras covering the 350 - 1700 nm spectral range.
Resonon provides the industry's most affordable outdoor hyperspectral imaging systems, for research and industrial applications.



  • Hyperspectral imaging camera
  • Objective lens
  • Lighting assembly with power supply
  • Linear translation stage
  • Mounting tower
  • SpectrononPro software preloaded onto desktop computer
  • Calibration tile


Positions of the imager and lighting assembly are adjustable along the length of the tower.

Stage options

Standard linear translation stage



The linear stage holds the sample and translates across the field of view. Used for small samples that are easy to move.



Lighting & imager stage



The imager and lighting assembly are mounted to the standard translation stage. Used to scan stationary objects.



Backlight stage



Backlighting with a clear stage platform. Often used to scan biological samples.

Resonon's hyperspectral cameras are line-scan imagers. 2-dimensional images are constructed by translating the sample relative to the camera. This is accomplished in Resonon's benchtop system by placing the sample on a movable linear stage.
