Previously not possible with CMOS-based, digital high-speed cameras,
the combination of Vision Research's Phantom v7.3 electronics and a CMOS
sensor allows the new Phantom ir300 camera to capture image events
in the near IR spectrum in light that is invisible to humans.
While most CMOS sensors rapidly start losing sensitivity above 600nm,
the Phantom ir300 extends that point to 800nm providing
a usable range to about 1100nm.
Behaving just like the Phantom v7.3, the Phantom ir300 has the added
advantage that at wavelengths up to 600nm, it can also be used
as a general-purpose monochrome, digital high-speed camera.
The Phantom ir300 is packed with a large number of special features among
** Segment memory for up
to 16 cines in multi-cine mode
** Continuous recording
** Frame rate profile
** Memory gate
** Event marking
** Frame timestamp
** IRIG in/out (modulated
Applications for the Phantom ir300
When used with LED lights or lasers in the 850nm wavelength, the Phantom
ir300 is ideal for nocturnal animal studies and human eye studies.
Other deployments include security applications, pulsed
laser targeting applications, PIV, combustion and other uses where light
sources in the 600nm to 1100nm wavelength are used.
The camera can also be used for self-illuminating applications to see
what is happening in wavelengths the human eye can't see.
