SIM ultra-fast framing camera
Specialised Imaging has developed the capability on its SIM ultra-fast framing camera to make precise temperature measurements at different points in a high-speed event.
Capable of capturing up to 32 images at 1 billion frames per second, the SIM ultra-fast framing camera is proven to be able to capture visual data from even the most fleeting of phenomena. Unique technology enables the cameras to simultaneously capture images on different 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 the event under study.
The optical design of SIM cameras provide the choice of up to 16 separate optical channels without comprising performance or image quality. Effects such as parallax and shading are eliminated and the high spatial resolution (>50 lp/mm) is the same from frame to frame and in both axes. Individual ultra-high resolution intensified CCD detectors, controlled by state-of-the-art electronics, offer almost infinite control over gain and exposure allowing researchers freedom to capture images of even the most difficult transient phenomena. An integral TFT monitor allows users to see what the camera sees in real-time, thus allowing users to optimise focus and lighting to achieve excellent results.
