Speed Cameras

pco.1200 hs

This high speed 10bit CMOS camera system comprises advanced CMOS and electronics technology. With the new approach to integrate the image memory (camRAM) into the camera itself, it enables unmatched fast image recording with 1GB/s. The system features an excellent resolution (1280 x 1024pixel) and low noise. It consists of a compact camera with an external intelligent power supply. The image data are transferred via customer selectable standard data interfaces to a computer (IEEE 1394 (”°firewire”±), camera link). The available exposure times range from 1„ģs(50ns optional) to 5s. This digital CMOS camera system is perfectly suited for high speed camera applications such as material testing, external crash testing or super slow motion movie clips.
