Specialised Imaging improves fast framing camera
The Tring-based group has updated its SIM ultra fast framing camera to measure the temperature at different points in a high-speed event
The SIM ultra fast framing camera is currently able to capture up to 32 images at 1 billion frames per second.
It does this by simultaneously capturing images on a variety of selected channels.
By fitting each optical channel with wavelength filters (400-900nm) software will enable the SIM camera to combine two images from two different wavelengths to give a precise temperature reading from selected points in an event.
Unlike traditional ultra fast framing cameras, the optical design of SIM cameras provide the choice of up to 16 separate optical channels.
The company claims that effects such as parallax and shading, inherent in other designs, are eliminated and the high spatial resolution (> 50 lp/mm) is the same from frame to frame and in both axes.
The OT3 battery-driven optical trigger is designed to mobilise imaging for use with high speed cameras on proofing ranges.
Specialised Imaging (SI) offers high quality servicing and repair of high speed framing and still cameras.
Kirana combines the flexibility of video with the resolution of an ultra high-speed framing camera.
A 3D pitch, yaw and velocity solution was developed using the SIM Cerberus system for the study of projectile ballistics.
The SIR3 provides displacement and velocity data for ballistic, detonics and impact studies.
