The CR450x2 is a high-speed
camera for capturing high-speed events in order to slow down
playback and for image and motion analysis.
Operating at a resolution of 800 x 600 pixels and with
a framerate of 1000 fps, the camera's large memory
allows for impressively lengthy recording times. The
CR450x2 also offers area of interest mode which allows the camera to output
a lower resolution at higher frame rates.
Files can be exported in a number of formats: BMP, TIFF,
AVI and MPEG and the image trigger feature offers external hardware trigger
and synchronisation as well as an internal software trigger using movement
The camera's sensitive sensor operates in lower light conditions
which allows it to be used at very high shutter speeds to freeze motion
without needing a complex and expensive illumination system.
Being a stand-alone compact camera, it uses internal memory
to store high speed image sequences at very high frame rates and features
a fast Gigabit ethernet connection to transfer the already-captured sequences
The gigabit ethernet connection also provides the means
to control the camera when setting up and also viewing a live image on
a screen for image composition before recording.
The Optronis CR 450x2 high-speed camera is an excellent entry-level
product requiring minimal training for use and camera management
is by way of the packaged, free CamControl software, running on Windows.
Optronis also provide a driver for Labview.
While compact and portable, (weighing 1.05 Kg), this
camera's high-quality manufacture as well as its tough aluminium housing,
makes the CR450x2 particularly suited to rugged environments
and applications including:
* Crash and explosives testing
* Materials testing
* Research and development
* Optimization of production workflow
* Processes analysis in machine building
