High Speed Cameras

pco.dimax HS

This high speed 12 bit CMOS camera system, pco.dimax HS, comprises advanced CMOS and electronics technology. With its sensitive 12 bit dynamic it enables remarkable fast image rates of 2277 frames per second (fps) at full resolution of 2000 x 2000 pixel (HS 4). The system features also a variety of trigger options to cover all offboard applications that have been required by the automotive industry. The image data are transferred via GigE or USB2.0 (camera link optional) camera?interfaces. The available exposure times range from 1.5 •žs to 40 ms. This digital CMOS camera system is perfectly suited for high speed camera applications such as airbag inflation, combustion research or ballistic tests or super slow motion movie clips.
