Cameras for time-resolved imaging are traditionally large, heavy and expensive. Dantec Dynamics introduces the SpeedSense M series cameras, which are compact and substantially cheaper than the top of the line SpeedSense series, yet use the same CMOS sensor technology.
The new SpeedSense M110 and SpeedSense M310 cameras have 1 M pixel (1280 x 800) resolution, 12 bit pixel depth, high light sensitivity, a minimum interframe time of 500 ns and maximum frame rates of 1630 fps and 3260 fps respectively.
The new SpeedSense M120 and SpeedSense M320 cameras have 2 M pixel (1920 x 1200) resolution, 12 bit pixel depth, a minimum interframe time of 1.4 µs and maximum frame rates of 730 fps and 1380 fps respectively.
All four cameras come with 3, 6 or 12 GB on-board memory and F-mount, and data transfer is by GigE ethernet. With such a short interframe time, they are ideal for TR-PIV measurements at high velocities.
The SpeedSense M cameras replace the older generation SpeedSense 9040 and 9050 cameras and have higher light sensitivity, lower noise, shorter minimum interframe time and are more compact.
