The handheld scanner incorporates a miniature near infrared spectrometer. The internal light source focuses a beam of light through the front window into the food. Light reflected from the sample is then collected through the same window. This light is then dispersed onto a micro-mirror device, and measured by an optimized detection system. This produces a digital electronic signal, known as a spectrum, that is characteristic of the food.
TellSpec’s Food Scanner Technology
TellSpec’s food sensor uses the Texas Instruments’ DLP technology. This technology allows our scanner to have an excellent performance due to a higher signal to noise ratio as well as a more accurate spectrum acquisition. We believe that TI ‘s DLP technology applied to spectroscopy brings amazing new opportunities for the exploding Sensor Industry, and we are proud to be working with Texas Instrument.
