SIM02 multi-channel framing camera
Specialised Imaging has upgraded its SIM02 multi-channel framing camera with a new multi-spectral imaging configuration. This facility, coupled with the ability to take images at exposures down to 3ns with zero interframe time, enables researchers to accurately study wavelength dispersion of stressed materials, measure rapid colour changes and analyse transient temperature fluctuations.
Proven in leading research labs around the world, the SIM02 offers up to 16 separate channels giving 32 separate images without compromising on image quality. Effects such as parallax and shading, inherent in other framing camera designs, are eliminated and the high spatial resolution (>30 lp/mm) is the same frame to frame and in both axes.
Individual ultra-high resolution intensified CCD detectors, controlled by state-of-the-art electronics, offer excellent control over gain and exposure allowing researchers total freedom to capture images of even the most difficult phenomena. The 8- and 16-channel version of this innovative imaging system also incorporate a secondary optical view port, which allows other analytical instruments such as high-speed video, streak camera or time resolved spectrometer to share the camera's optical input.
Full remote control using Ethernet comes as standard, while an integral TFT monitor allows users to 'see what the camera sees' in real time, thus allowing easy optimisation of focus and lighting. Comprehensive triggering facilities, highly accurate timing control, and a wide range of output signals, coupled with a powerful software package simplifies quality image capture.
