Replacement camera models: Photron Nova S6 or Photron AX200
Engineered to survive hostile environments to 100G's in any axis, the FASTCAM SA3 is a compact and rugged high speed camera ideal for those applications requiring reliability and superior image quality, regardless of the situation. Provides mega pixel resolution (1K by 1K pixels) up to 2,000 frames per second (fps).
The super light sensitive sensor provides 12-bit dynamic range from its large seventeen micron square pixels without falling back on interlacing or interpolation trickery, a serious consideration for anyone requiring precise motion analysis. A two microsecond global electronic shutter ensures your images are blur free regardless of speed.
Tech Imaging offers two models of the FASTCAM SA3 are available; starting with the 60K model that provides full resolution to 1,000 fps, with a top speed of 60,000 fps at reduced resolution, and culminating in the FASTCAM SA3 120K that provides 2,000 fps at 1,024 by 1,024 pixel resolution, and reduced resolution operations as fast as 120,000 fps. Both models are available with either two, four or eight Gigabytes onboard memory, color or monochrome.
Optional accessories include battery backup. The built in battery provides one and a half hours data retention in the event power is lost. An RS422 remote control keypad with built-in 5" LCD display to make setting up and operating the camera without a computer needing to be connected via the built-in Gigabit Ethernet port. The camera is provided with both C-mount and F-mount lens mountings, and can be supplied with an optional high-G block mount for use in high-G environments.
Target applications include:
- Materials research
- Fluid dynamics
