Lambert Instruments has released a new range of high-speed cameras, the Lambert HS Series. The HS540M and the HS540S offer simple and efficient high-speed imaging for scientific research, R&D, machine vision and other industrial applications. The HS540M is particularly suited to research applications and industrial R&D as it has up to 16GB of internal storage. After recording data, users can review the results in Lambert Instruments' software and trim the high-speed video before exporting it to their computer.

Designed for high-performance tasks like machine vision, quality control and wafer inspection, the HS540S is a streaming high-speed camera for industrial applications. Instead of saving the images to internal storage, the camera streams high-speed video directly to a computer over a CoaXPress interface. And with Power over CoaXPress the camera can be powered over the CoaXPress channels, removing the need for a dedicated power cable.

Both the HS540M and the HS540S feature a high-speed CMOS sensor that records full-resolution images (1,696 x 1,710 pixels) at 540fps. To increase the frame rate, the camera can use a smaller part of the sensor to reduce the image resolution. By doing so, it can deliver frame rates of up to 170,000 fps. Its electronic global shutter and minimum exposure time of 2µs ensure sharp images of fast-moving objects.

The HS540 cameras support digital imaging standards that make it easy to integrate into an automated setup. Camera characteristics are determined using the measurement procedures from the EMVA 1288 standard, making specifications more transparent and easier to compare to other cameras.
