Camera system, compact, high definition, high speed, 2048 x 2048 pixels at 750fps
Manufacturer's part number :
Compact lightweight camera system offering outstanding performance and ease of use in a wide range of high‐speed imaging applications requiring high‐resolution
The Photron FASTCAM Mini WX high‐speed camera delivers exceptional high‐ resolution performance by providing 2048x2048 pixels (4MP) resolution at 750 frames per second (fps), full HD (1920x1080 pixels) at 1,500fps and up to 67,500fps at reduced image resolution
A true Region of Interest (ROI) capability allows the user to not only match the image aspect ratio to the subject, but for applications such as microscopy it is possible to position the ROI at any location on the sensor thus removing the need to adjust the camera position.
The FASTCAM Mini WX is both compact and light weight with dimensions of just 120mm x 120mm x 99mm and weighing 1.6kg and also rugged ‐ operationally tested to 100G , 10ms, 6 axis. This unique combination of high resolution performance in a compact, light but rugged package maximises the range of industrial and scientific applications to which the FASTCAM Mini WX may be applied.
The FASTCAM Mini WX utilises Photron's proprietary CMOS sensor technology providing 12bit monochrome or 36bit colour versions . With the utilization of micro‐lenses this system delivers excellent light sensitivity and image quality. Recording memory options from 4GB ‐ 16GB permit capture of up to 2.7 seconds un‐compressed and un‐interpolated data - this is sufficient duration for typical high‐speed events.
Standard operational features of the FASTCAM Mini WX50 include Gigabit Ethernet interface for fast image download and the ability to switch off cooling fans to eliminate vibration when recording at high magnifications - in particular applications such as study of microfluidic flows within a 'Lab‐on‐a‐chip' device. Intuitive and feature rich Photron FASTCAM Viewer (PFV) software, SDK and support for operation within a MATLAB or LabVIEW environment are also provided as standard.
