Monarch II PCB Multispectral Camera Module

Unispectral’s Monarch PCB - the world’s first portable tunable spectral NIR camera for integration in personal, industrial, scientific, and commercial devices.

The Monarch™ PCB allows you to build and brand your own multispectral camera. You can also embed it in your device/machine/robot. It features the same performance, specifications and characteristics as the Mobile Monarch II Camera. The camera’s control, data transfer and power supply are provided via a single USB port.

Monarch PCB captures multispectral images easily and inexpensively, anywhere and anytime. It opens a wide array of new applications for any market segment.

Unispectral’s tuneable NIR solutions provide an additional layer of actionable information by capturing multiple spectral images in near-IR bands for immediate inspection, detection and classification applications. The Monarch small and light camera captures and immediately outputs multiple single-band spectral-cube high-resolution images within 680nm-940nm spectral range. Its affordability and simplicity remove the barrier to wide adoption in many applications and mass-market platforms.

Monarch is the second generation of the ColorIR™ NIR camera. It consists of the Unispectral tunable Fabry–Pérot filter (μFPF), integrated with a miniature IR camera module – optics, image sensors and controllers – all mounted on a 60x40x14.5mm PCB, ready to install in any mobile or static design.
