UHSi 12/24 Ultra High Speed Framing Camera
The Ultra UHSi series of compact ultra high speed framing cameras are designed to capture up to 24 mega-pixel performance frames of the very fastest events. Fully independently programmable exposures and delays from 5ns allow true framing rates to 200M fps. The intensified UHSi offers versatile triggering options including synchro mode (frame-by-frame) and a built in velocity trap. The cameras allows the researcher unparalleled flexibility to capture the event. The system is completed with IVV Imprint PC software which allows for full camera control, capture, image analysis and file/data export.
Typical applications include combustion studies, electric-discharge, bio-mechanics, detonics, somi-luminescence, shock physics and general material studies.
