High-Speed CMOS Camera SAN DIEGO, Sept. 23, 2009 – Photron Inc. has unveiled the Fastcam SA4, a high-performance, high-speed CMOS sensor that operates at 3600 fps at full 1024 × 1024-pixel resolution and at up to 500,000 fps at reduced resolution.
The camera offers an affordable alternative for applications that do not require the highest frame rates, but where features such as extreme light sensitivity, high dynamic range and image quality, and low noise are critical. Compatible with the company’s existing camera family and data acquisition devices, the SA4 is also available with an RS-422 remote control keypad with a built-in 5-in. LCD viewfinder for remote operation. The camera features a variable region of interest with 12-bit uncompressed data, a 1-µs global shutter, and 20-µm pixels for low-light, high-sensitivity, high-speed applications. Memory options include 8, 16 or 32 GB.
Proprietary Fastcam Viewer freeware is included, along with a software developer’s kit for users who wish to integrate camera control, replay and download to their existing software. Composite and SDI video output via the Gigabit Ethernet interface offers real-time monitoring during setup, recording and playback.
The imager is offered with an optional sealed and rugged housing designed for dust-free imaging and for conditions where external fans cannot be used. Applications for the camera include fluid dynamics, materials test and research, biomechanics, particle image velocimetry, automotive safety testing, airbag development and test, microscopy, ballistics, combustion and aerospace.
