High Speed Camera System

Manufacturer's part number :


Manufacturer Photron


Description :

The compact size of the FASTCAM SA8 conceals powerful high speed imaging performance. A choice of two performance options provide frame rates of either 2,000 fps or 3,500 fps at 1,280 x 1,024 pixel image resolution with increased frame rates at reduced image resolution.

For automotive testing users, the FASTCAM SA8 exceeds the latest requirements for airbag testing by offering 896 x 896 pixels @ 5,000fps

Innovative CMOS image sensor technology provides high quality, low noise images not previously available from high speed camera systems. True 12-bit ADC produces sharp, high contrast imaging to perfectly replicate the fine detail of subjects being recorded. Excellent light sensitivity and a 10 microsecond global electronic shutter allow the system to be employed in demanding imaging applications.

The 12.8 x 10.2mm sensor size allows the FASTCAM SA8 to utilize 1 inch format C mount lenses and F mount lenses. The camera benefits from a sealed camera body construction allowing use in harsh environments without ingress of dust and other contamination. The camera's rugged and compact design (camera body size 151(5.9') x 102 (4.0') x 195 (7.7') mm) allows positioning in space-limited locations and integration with other instrumentation systems.
