The FASTCAM NOVA S20 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 S20 offers 10-bit image recording rates up to 20,000fps at megapixel image resolution, and shutter speeds to 0.2μs. Recording rates to 1,100,000fps are available at reduced image resolutions.
Standard features of the FASTCAM NOVA 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 Cannon EF lenses.
The FASTCAM NOVA 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 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.
Monochrome sensors used in the FASTCAM NOVA S20 are supplied without an IR absorbing filter, extending the camera spectral response beyond 900nm
