High-resolution, high-speed cameras for robotics applications

The i-SPEED 220 and i-SPEED 221 from iX Cameras represent the first cameras in a class of small footprint, easy-to-use, low-cost and high-resolution high speed cameras. A high-resolution 1600×1600 CMOS fast-transfer sensor allows the imagery of minute details even when zoomed in. The maximum full frame rate of 600 fps with both a global exposure shutter and optional G-shock housing makes this high-speed camera suitable for robotics, auto-crash testing, graphics inspection, 3-D biomechanics, web inspection, and more.

The i-SPEED 220/221 high-speed cameras fit in a briefcase, consume little power and create nice images that can be zoomed and analysed. Image transfer is simple via Ethernet. The one-hour battery that comes standard on the model 221 coupled with a standard laptop make this camera suitable for untethered portable field work. Add a layer of rugged durability with the optional Hi-G shock package.

The iX Cameras i-SPEED 2 high-speed cameras provide a variety of storage levels from 2GB, 4GB, 8GB and 16GB, allowing for everything from discrete transient event capture to extended full resolution record times of over 11 seconds. The cameras come in either a mono or colour version.

Control 2 Series software provides a user-friendly interface for recording, playback, and editing of i-SPEED 2 high-speed videos. This powerful camera control software has been developed specifically to handle large amounts of data, fast transmission, and ultra-slow motion in videos recorded at up to 200,000 frames per second. Control 2 Series is suitable for a range of video applications, including manufacturing and process automation, quality assurance testing, research and development and biomechanics.

Other features include certification to 100 G shock, 10 G vibration, long recording times with up to 16 GB memory (Model 221 only), small package fits on microscopes and in tight spaces as well as global exposure shutter and interchangeable C-mount lenses.
