The FASTCAM NOVA R2 brings together unique CMOS image sensor technologies and extensive high-speed digital imaging expertise to provide a camera with the flexibility to be used in a wide variety of applications. The FASTCAM NOVA R2 offers 12-bit image recording rates up to 1,440fps at 4-megapixel image resolution, and shutter speeds to 2.7us. Recording rates up to 100,000fps are available at reduced image resolutions.
Standard features of the FASTCAM NOVA R2 include an internal mechanical shutter to allow remote system calibration, a high-performance 10-Gigabit Ethernet interface for camera control and high-speed image download, memory segmentation that allows recording into one memory partition while downloading from another, and compatibility with a number of industry standard lens formats to allow the use of Nikon G-Type, C-mount and Canon EF lenses.
The FASTCAM NOVA R2 also features a “sealed body” design that prevents dust and corrosive particles from contaminating sensitive electronics. An optional FAST Drive SSD can be used for the download of images at up to 1GB per second.
Intuitive and feature rich Photron FASTCAM Viewer (PFV) software is included with each FASTCAM NOVA R2 camera. Also included is a Photron Device Control SDK that allows integration of the camera with user-specific software, and libraries for controlling the camera within a MATLAB or LabView environment.
The FASTCAM NOVA R2 uses an advanced CMOS image sensor optimized for light sensitivity and high image quality that is unique to Photron.
A 10-micron pixel pitch gives a sensor size at full image resolution of 20.48 x 20.48mm (diagonal 28.96mm).
