SAN DIEGO, Sept. 26, 2006 -- Photron Inc. has introduced the Fastcam MH-4 remote, multihead digital video imaging system. The miniature, high-speed system allows the use of one to four detachable camera heads, each only 35mm x 35mm x 35mm (less than 1.5 inches without lens) and weighing less than 100 grams. The system features excellent light sensitivity with full 512 x 512 pixel resolution up to 2000 frames per second (f/s) and up to 10,000 f/s at reduced resolution. The compact Fastcam MH-4 uses a 10-micron-square pixel with an 8-bit monochrome and 24-bit color CMOS sensor.
Designed for maximum flexibility in hostile conditions such as vehicle impact testing, the camera heads can be easily mounted in areas of limited space in any orientation using the highly flexible, 10-meter (32.8 foot) cable lengths. Three cable types (90 degrees right, straight, and 90 degrees left) and two camera head connector configurations (top or rear-mounted) simplify mounting and placement of the tiny camera heads. The tilting camera mount features compact NF style lenses; a C-mount adaptor is also available.
Photron’s Fastcam MH-4 is ruggedized to withstand high shock and vibration, with high-G ratings up to 100 Gs on any axis, making them ideal for recording and motion analysis of critical events during high impact tests, Photron said. It is also suitable for any high-speed imaging tasks that require camera positioning in confined areas and on low-mass mounting surfaces, such as pedal and footwell areas, steering columnsand safety belt mountings. Photron’s FASTCAM MH-4 has a single processor that supports up to four cameras with Gigabit Ethernet connectivity. The included battery backup provides up to an hour of power-loss security.
