Tech Imaging proudly presents the FASTCAM NOVA S20 high speed camera. This ultra-high speed camera offers 10-bit image recording rates up to 20,000 frames per second (fps) at megapixel image resolution (1024 x992), 1024 x 1024 pixels at 16,500fps (12-bit image), and shutter speeds to 0.2μs minimum exposure. The Nova S20 high speed camera brings together innovative CMOS image sensor technologies and extensive high-speed digital imaging expertise to provide a camera with the flexibility to be used in a wide variety of applications. All of this is available from a camera that is rugged, compact, lightweight and provides the best light sensitivity in its class.
Standard elements of the FASTCAM NOVA S20 ultra high speed camera include incorporate an internal mechanical shutter to permit remote system calibration, , a high-performance 10-Gigabit Ethernet interface for camera control and high-speed image download, memory segmentation that allows recording into one memory partition while downloading from another, and compatibility with a number of industry standard lens formats to allow the use of Nikon G-Type, C-mount, M42 and Canon EF lenses.
The FASTCAM NOVA S20 high speed camera also features a “sealed body” design that prevents dust and corrosive particles from contaminating sensitive electronics. An optional FASTDrive SSD can be used for the download of images faster than 1GB per second.
Feature and element rich Photron FASTCAM Viewer (PFV) software is included with each FASTCAM NOVA S20 high speed camera. Also included is a Photron Device Control SDK that allows integration of the camera with user-specific software, and libraries for controlling the camera within a MATLAB® or LabView environment.
Target applications include:
- Offboard automotive safety testing
- Life sciences
- Defence and aerospace research
- Material sciences
- Fluid dynamics / PIV
