HIGH SPEED CAMERAS PRODUCTS

Photron offers the FASTCAM Mini CX camera designed to deliver an exceptional combination of resolution, frame rate, light sensitivity, and durability in a compact, stand-alone package for both on-board and off-board vehicle safety testing. The camera provides image quality with 1080 HD resolution at 1,000 frame per second and light sensitivity of ISO 5,000 color and ISO 10,000 monochrome.

The new Phantom® VEO family of cameras from Vision Research is made up of four high speed cameras designed to provide information on high speed events within scientific and industrial applications. The VEO710 and VEO410 models feature frame rates exceeding 7,000 fps, making these models ideal for traditional high-speed motion analysis. The four-megapixel VEO640 and VEO340 are optimized for scientific imaging applications where higher resolutions are important. All models are now available with 10 Gb Ethernet connectivity.

The Photometrics Prime is the first intelligent scientific CMOS (sCMOS) camera to incorporate a FPGA-based Embedded Signal Processing™ engine (ESP) that enables a number of real-time processing features. Utilizing sCMOS sensor technology, Prime is and an extremely versatile imaging solution for life science imaging applications such as microscopy and high-speed ratiometric imaging.

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. 

The Phantom® Miro® camera series offers a wide variety of models with a range of performance levels in three different available body styles. Available in 1, 2, and 4 megapixel versions, these cameras are the ideal choice for qualitative and quantitative analysis and allow for users to choose the resolution, performance level, and body style that fits each application.

Spectral Instruments has developed a new camera line utilizing CCDs with multiple read ports per CCD for high speed imaging without compromising on the typical specifications that falter when moving to high speed. Utilizing multiple ports (up to 16 per device) cuts down on the number of pixels each port must read, and thus increases read speeds by up to 16x without compromising read noise. Other than the multiple ports, CCD design is essentially unchanged and high pixel full well is retained to give maximum dynamic range when compared to all other modes of high speed imaging.

PCO’s high speed CMOS camera series delivers extremely fast frame rates, high resolution, and a variety of operational and trigger modes. They are well suited for applications involving airbag inflation, combustion research, ballistics testing, and other high speed camera applications.

Vision Research offers the new Phantom v2640 as the world’s fastest 4Mpx camera, with exceptional throughput of 26 Gpx/sec, and 6,600 fps at full resolution of 2048 x 1952. The camera features high flexibility, high sensitivity with ISO monochrome of 16,000D and color at 3,200D, and can reach a 142 ns minimum exposure with the FAST option. With excellent image quality, a dynamic range of 64.1 dB, and noise of only 7.2e-, this camera is perfect for a variety of applications, including data acquisition, motion analysis, and more.
