The ultima APX-RS provides full mega pixel resolution images at frame rates up to 3,000 frames per second (fps), 512 x 512-pixels resolution at 10,000fps and at reduced frame rates to an unrivaled frame rate of 250,000fps.

Utilizing Photron’s advanced CMOS sensor technology, the APX-RS provides the higher light sensitivity than any other comparable high-speed imaging system. Designed as a solid one piece camera, able to withstand shock forces as high as 100G’s. Both color and monochrome models are available, both with excellent anti-blooming capabilities.

A user selectable ‘Region Of Interest’ function enables the active image area to be defined in steps of 128 pixels wide by 16 pixels high to allow the most efficient use of frame rate, image resolution and memory capacity for any event. Up to 20 commonly used configurations can be saved to memory for future operation.

Available with Gigabit Ethernet, FireWire and fiber optic communications, this compact camera can provide exposure durations as short as 2 microseconds and is easily operated in the field with or without a computer through use of the supplied remote keypad; enabling full camera setup, operation and image replay. When a PC is used, Photron’s PFV software makes setting up and operating multiple cameras easy and intuitive.
