SAN DIEGO, Jan. 21, 2013 — An optional Photron Fastcam Viewer plug-in from Photron Inc. provides synchronization of the company’s high-speed cameras with the NI USB-6251 BNC data acquisition module from National Instruments.
It synchronizes the company’s slow-motion cameras with National Instruments’ M Series integrated BNC data acquisition module and is provided free of charge to customers who order the option before March 31, 2013.
The NI USB-6251 BNC data acquisition module provides eight differential analog channels (16 single-ended) with an aggregate single-channel data rate of 1 million samples per second.
The optional plug-in is controlled via Photron’s PFV camera control software and enables simultaneous recording and playback of analog data that is precisely synchronized with high-speed video sequences recorded with Photron cameras at frame rates from 60 to 1.5 million fps. It provides users with a detailed account of exactly what occurred, and why.
It features “Level Detection Triggering,” enabling the system to monitor data acquisition signals from an event and automatically trigger the high-speed camera to start or stop recording images when levels exceed user pre-set reference values, and enabling capture of unpredictable and intermittent events.
