High-speed cameras allow users to capture a series of measurement images within a (very) short period of time i.e. between 2-12 seconds.
These types of cameras are triggered in burst-mode, whereby a trigger event initiates a rapid (or burst) imaging acquisition series and the data acquired is sent directly to an onboard storage medium.
The bandwidth and amount of memory space available determines the duration of the recorded event that can be acquired, as such transient material testing applications may be performed using high-speed cameras, including: impact testing, ballistic testing, (high) strain rate testing, (high frequency) vibration analysis or (split-) Hopkison bar testing.
Dantec Dynamics‘ portfolio of high-speed, Speedsense, cameras allow users to achieve resolutions from 1-4 Mpx and frame rates from 800-25,000 Hz. All SpeedSense cameras may be used directly in acquisition mode via Istra4D also with multi-camera setup capability utilizing 4-cameras. Istra4D also supports images acquired from external sources to be imported directly into the software.
