Photron launches FASTCAM IS-1M

Ultra-High Speed Camera System

Photron will be launching the Fastcam IS-1M at the forthcoming Photonics West meeting in San Francisco's Moscone Hall, January 24th through 26th.


The IS-1M utilizes a revolutionary ISIS-CCD to capture a blistering one million frames per second (fps) at full resolution of 316 by 260 pixels wide. ISIS-CCD (In-Situ Image Storage-CCD), better known as IS-CCD, uses an image storage buffer immediately beside the light sensitive portion of the 10-bit pixel to greatly increase the speed achievable by conventional high speed cameras.

Extremely light sensitive, Fastcam IS-1M captures a wide range of high speed events, even in low light conditions, while the 100 frame image buffer provides adequate synchronous record duration for the majority of ultra high speed phenomena such as ink jet droplet measurement, micro PIV, combustion, crack propagation or blast dynamics.

Please stop by booth 2013 to see the Fastcam IS-1M and talk to our knowledgeable staff there.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
