Sprinter-HD

3D View

Description

The Sprinter-HD high-speed camera of the CamRecord-Sprinter series is equipped with a large-format, highly light-sensitive image sensor that records the fastest movements. Capturing at a rate of 3,500 images per second in full format and 12,000 images at a resolution of 1,280 x 240 pixels, the camera is suitable for making very fast object movements visible, right through to simple ballistics. This camera therefore solves demanding measurement tasks in fault analysis and quality assurance for particularly fast-moving objects. The Sprinter-HD is identical to the formally availabe CR-S3500 model.

Standard-lens-attachments

The Sprinter-HD camera is ideally suited for industrial applications. What makes these cameras user-friendly is a number of standard interfaces but particularly the availabilitly of standard lens attachments.

  • C-Mount
    For microscopy applications or for optimal adjustment of the object size to the sensor size. C-Mount lenses are low priced and due to their wide aperture particularly suitable for applications with high image refresh rates (frames per second).
  • F-Mount (Nikon)
    Allows using widespread Nikon-F lenses with mechanically adjustable aperture ring. Many fixed Focus models are available but also various zoom models.
  • FMG-Mount
    For standard applications with Nikon G-mount lenses. The aperture is adjusted using the ring located on the mount.

Ring memory

The Sprinter-HD is equipped with an 16 GB ring memory. After starting recording, the camera stores the image sequence continuously. After triggering, recording continues for a set time. This allows some response time for the exernal trigger detection sytsem.

Using the 16 GB memory, it can store the recording over a period of 4 seconds, at full resolution and speed. This option for checking more extended process flows is of particular benefit if it is difficult to assess the particular point at which a fault arises in the process.

Interfaces

There are several connections on the aluminium camera housing:

  • Mechanical interface
    Sturdy stainless steel camera mount with either 4 x M4 screws or photographic thread (¼-20 UNC)
  • Fast GigE interface
    High download speeds from the image memory to the memory of the connected PC
  • External trigger and synchronization interface
    Connection for various trigger sources (e.g. mechanical switch) and synchronization to motion-dependent image refresh rates
  • SSD Slot
    Plugin for a SSD harddisk
