Comparing Multispectral Imaging to Hyperspectral Imaging

Many vision systems offer a limited or spot inspection capability, based on the technology they use: multispectral imaging. PPO’s Smart Imaging System uses hyperspectral imaging, which offers a more robust and complete inspection capability. Here’s what that would look like if we were looking at a photograph.
