FASTCAM Mini UX50 And FASTCAM Mini UX100 FASTCAM Mini UX50 And FASTCAM Mini UX100

For use with a wide range of general scientific and industrial applications the Photron FASTCAM Mini UX high-speed camera provides outstanding imaging performance at a very attractive price performance ratio.

Two Mini UX camera models provide 1.3-megapixel (1280 x 1024 pixels) image resolution with frame rates up to 2,000fps from the Mini UX50 and 4,000fps from the Mini UX100. Both models are available with recording memory options up to 32GB providing extended recording times and triggering flexibility.

FASTCAM Mini AX50, FASTCAM Mini AX100 And FASTCAM Mini AX200 FASTCAM Mini AX50, FASTCAM Mini AX100 And FASTCAM Mini AX200

The FASTCAM Mini AX is Photron’s highest performance model within the FASTCAM Mini series of high-speed cameras. The Mini AX delivers exceptional light sensitivity, excellent image quality and flexible region of interest (ROI) features for customers who do not require the ultimate frame rate performance of the FASTCAM SA-X2 and SA-Z, but would benefit from the same high-end camera image sensor features.

High-Speed Polarization Cameras: CRYSTA Systems High-Speed Polarization Cameras: CRYSTA Systems

Recent developments in robotics, clear film production, and new materials testing technologies have raised the demand for using polarization in structural dynamics and high-speed object detection. Since conventional high-speed cameras lack any polarization sensitivity, Photron has developed the new CRYSTA high-speed camera system with polarization sensitivity.

FASTCAM SA-Z FASTCAM SA-Z

The Photron FASTCAM SA-Z offers scientists, researchers and engineers the ability to capture high resolution digital images at ultra-high speeds to see and understand previously invisible processes and events. Using Photron’s proprietary CMOS image sensor technology, the FASTCAM SA-Z combines high recording rates with outstanding light sensitivity and excellent image quality to provide the most versatile ultra-high speed digital camera available today.

FASTCAM SA-X2 FASTCAM SA-X2

In order to meet the requirements of the most demanding high-speed imaging applications a balance of high frame rate, image resolution, dynamic range and light sensitivity is required. The FASTCAM SA-X2 high-speed camera system has been designed to provide a careful balance of these requirements.

FASTCAM SA4 FASTCAM SA4

As with the higher specification FASTCAM SA1 and SA5 models in this series, the FASTCAM SA4 camera utilizes the same CMOS sensor with a 20µm pixel delivering an ISO light sensitivity of 10,000 (monochrome) and 4,000 (color), both measured to the published ISO 12232 Ssat standard.

  • Understanding The Dynamics Of Droplets And Turbulence

    Turbulent flows laced with particles can be found everywhere, and include fuel droplets in combustion engines, airborne pollen, and water droplets in clouds. Even though they have been studied often, questions still remain that have to do with the particles’ inertia prohibiting them from following turbulence flow, making the Navier-Stokes equations insufficient for solving their equations. This white paper presents a project studying the dynamics of inertial droplets in a turbulent flow in a well-controlled environment. Measurements of droplet size distribution and turbulent dispersion rate in this study are done with interferometric particle imaging (IPI) and phosphorescent tagging techniques.

  • Precision Of FLEET Velocimetry Using High-Speed CMOS Camera Systems
    Precision Of FLEET Velocimetry Using High-Speed CMOS Camera Systems

    Femtosecond laser electronic excitation tagging (FLEET) is an optical measurement technique that permits quantitative velocimetry of unseeded air or nitrogen using a single laser and a single camera. This paper seeks to determine the fundamental precision of the FLEET technique using high-speed complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) cameras. 

  • Development Of Background-Oriented Schlieren For NASA Langley Research Center Ground Test Facilities

    This paper provides an overview of recent wind tunnel tests performed at the NASA Langley Research Center where the Background-Oriented Schlieren (BOS) technique was used to provide information pertaining to flow-field density disturbances. The facilities where the BOS technique was applied included the National Transonic Facility (NTF), Transonic Dynamics Tunnel (TDT), 31-Inch Mach 10 Air Tunnel, 15-Inch Mach 6 High-Temperature Air Tunnel, Rotor Test Cell at the 14×22 Subsonic Tunnel, and a 13-Inch Low-Speed Tunnel.

    Laser Illumination For High-Speed Imaging

    An incorrect or poorly lit subject affects the image, regardless of camera system quality. Therefore, the illumination source is just as important as the camera's resolution and sensitivity. See how a laser can be used for illumination in these four high-speed imaging application examples.

  • Using A Photron FASTCAM Camera For Particle Imaging Velocimetry (PIV)
    Using A Photron FASTCAM Camera For Particle Imaging Velocimetry (PIV)

    Particle Imaging Velocimetry (PIV) can be extremely useful for the analysis of turbulent flow, transient flow, micro flow, and 3D volumetric flow studies within automotive, aerospace, bio-tech/medical, marine propulsion, electronics, and scientific research industries. Photron presents a technique using high speed FASTCAM cameras to obtain the time dependent velocity distributions in a Field-Of-View (FOV) of single and multi-phase flows which are very fast, turbulent, and complex.
