DayCor®

Bi-spectral solar blind UV-Visible inspection systems

DayCor® technology, in a nutshell, is an encapsulation of Ofil’s proprietary building blocks namely: solar blind filters, UV optics, precise mechanics & electronics and sophisticated algorithms.  Products incorporating this technology feature absolute solar blindness with extended UV detection capabilities of even a single UV photon. On the whole, DayCor® technology enables collecting UV beams, processing and displaying them as meaningful digital images of the complete inspected scene with indications of the UV photons scored.
