Photron’s High Speed Camera Delivers 12,500 Frames per Second at Mega Pixel Resolution – Fastcam SA-X

April 4, 2012

SAN DIEGO, April 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Photron, Inc., a global leader and manufacturer of high speed cameras and image analysis software, announces the highest performance high speed camera, the Fastcam SA-X. Delivering up to 12,500 frames per second at full 1,024 x 1,024 pixel resolution, the new high speed camera meets the requirements of the most complex and demanding imaging applications. The new camera features up to 64 GB on-board memory and is designed to provide optimum imaging performance by offering extremely high frame rate, superior image resolution, 12-bit dynamic range, and excellent light sensitivity.

With groundbreaking light sensitivity at 25,000 ISO monochrome measured to ISO standard 12232 Ssat specification, the Fastcam SA-X permits high frame rates and short exposure times, critical factors in high speed imaging performance. The new high speed camera system is ideal for use in materials science, fluid dynamics (PIV), defense and aerospace research, ballistics imaging, combustion research, and shock waves and detonation applications, or other activities that require visualization of complex high speed phenomena.

The Fastcam SA-X is equipped with a 20-micron pixel size with 12-bit ADC (Bayer system color, single sensor). Other features include a convenient dual high speed gigabit Ethernet interface, a fast-acting hardware trigger that allows automated camera triggering, and flexible frame synchronization to external devices, including non-stable frequencies.

Camera control can be accessed with the optional keypad or via Photron’s award winning Photron Fastcam Viewer (PFV) software. The integrated capping shutter is included to facilitate automated image calibration for easy operation. Photron’s new Fastcam SA-X, like all of Photron’s high speed imaging systems, is supplied with the intuitive PFV software. A software development kit is also included allowing for integration with user-specific software as well as wrappers for MATLAB and LabVIEW.
