High Speed Camera


The high speed camera (Photron - ultima APX-RS) provides full mega pixel resolution as fast as 3,000 frames per second (fps), a staggering 10,000 fps at 512 by 512 pixels, and the fastest top speed in the industry of 250,000 fps.


Available with Gigabit Ethernet, FireWire, or optical communications, this compact camera can shutter as fast as 2 microseconds and is easily operated in the field without requiring any computer attached at all. The supplied remote keypad enables full camera setup, operation and image replay and is intuitive and easy to use. When a PC is used, Photron’s PFV software makes setting up and operating multiple cameras a doddle, regardless of the interface used, our FireWire is safe and reliable.
