Chroma Technology Honored with Innovators Award
Chroma Technology announced today that its ContrastMax SWIR optical filters for machine vision and remote sensing were recognized among the best in machine vision today by the judges of the Vision Systems Design 2022 Innovators Awards program at the Automate Show in Detroit, MI. The judging panel consisted of esteemed experts from system integrators and end-user companies.
“The Vision Systems Design team would like to congratulate Chroma Technology for their Bronze Award in the 2022 Innovators Awards program,” says Chris McLoone, Editor-in-Chief. “Each year this unbiased and increasingly competitive program aims to celebrate the most innovative products and systems in machine vision.”
“We have expanded the ContrastMax wavelength range into the SWIR with a variety of bandpass filters, as well as some multiband filters,” said John Atkinson, Principal Product Engineer at Chroma. “The use of multi-band filters together with other technological advances makes multispectral imaging far more accessible, especially in more cost-sensitive applications. We designed these filters to optimize the signal-to-noise ratio and complement the latest advances in sensor technology. We are honored to receive this award in recognition of our efforts.”
Chroma introduced the ContrastMax line of visible spectrum, sputtered interference filter coatings designed for machine vision applications, in 2016. Recently they expanded the line to include wavelengths up to 2800 nm. This expanded wavelength range now includes single and multiband short-wave infrared (SWIR) filters, tailored for machine vision and remote sensing applications, such as food inspection and sorting, waste stream sorting and recycling, semiconductor inspection, LiDAR, and agricultural monitoring.
Delivering the most accurate performance for the same cost as lower quality interference filters, Chroma’s ContrastMax SWIR optical filters provide an outstanding signal-to-noise and can significantly improve image quality on a host of applications. Chroma’s filters pass all the light you want and none of the light you don’t want. Their filters provide performance, durability, and value: Everything you need in a machine-vision filter.
