In order to meet the requirements of the most demanding high speed imaging applications a balance of high frame rate, image resolution, dynamic range and light sensitivity is required. The FASTCAM SA-X2 high speed camera system has been designed to provide a careful balance of all these sometimes conflicting requirements.

FASTCAM SA-X2 brings together unique CMOS image sensor technologies and digital imaging expertise to provide optimum imaging performance. The system offers recording rates up to 13,500 fps at Megapixel image resolution with 12 bit dynamic range and high image quality.

Light sensitivity is often the most critical performance criteria in high speed imaging. Without high light sensitivity imaging at high frame rates and with short exposure times is not possible. A camera system providing high light sensitivity allows objective lenses and lighting techniques to be optimized to visualize complex high speed phenomena.

The FASTCAM SA-X2 system may be controlled via the optional keypad or over a high speed Gigabit Ethernet network. The system is provided with an integrated capping shutter to facilitate automated image calibration and enhance ease of operation. The system is supplied with intuitive Photron FASTCAM Viewer (PFV) software and Photron Device Control SDK (software development kit) allowing integration with user specific software.

Target applications include:

  • Materials Science
  • Combustion Research
  • Fluid dynamics (PIV)
  • Defense and aerospace research
  • Ballistic Imaging
  • Shock Waves and Detonations
