Photron's Mega-Pixel FASTCAM Mini AX200 - High-Speed Camera System with the Industries' Highest Light Sensitivity

• The newest high-speed video camera in the FASTCAM Mini AX family features extraordinary light sensitivity of ISO 40,000 monochrome and 16,000 color.

SAN DIEGO, CA -- Oct. 9, 2015 -- ­­­­­Photron, Inc., (www.photron.com) a global leader and manufacturer of high-speed cameras and image analysis software, introduces the FASTCAM Mini AX200 High Speed Camera System. Providing 1,024 x 1,024 pixel resolution at up to 6,400 frames per second (fps) and up to 900,000 fps at reduced resolution, the compact, high-G camera features remarkable light sensitivity of ISO 40,000 (mono) and ISO 16,000 (color), as measured to the industrys true ISO Ssat 12232 standard. Photrons FASTCAM Mini AX200 is specially designed for demanding automotive, military, and industrial high-speed imaging tasks and for high-frame-rate imaging in critical laboratory applications.


The new cameras superior light sensitivity enables the video capture of extremely high speed events, without the need for additional lighting packages. It also permits faster frame rates, shorter shutter speeds, and greater depths of field under the same lighting conditions, without added illumination.

With 4 GB, 8 GB, and 16 GB memory options, the FASTCAM Mini AX200 has a high-performance Gigabit Ethernet interface to make it easy to view and analyze the slow motion video data from a desktop or laptop PC. The compact (120 mm (4.7") H x 120 mm (4.7") W x 94 mm (3.7") D, lightweight (1.5 kg / 3.3 lbs.) camera body is designed for high-shock, high-G environments and tested to 100G, 10ms, 6 axes.

Target applications for Photrons new camera include biomechanics, onboard and offboard automotive safety testing, defense/aerospace research, material sciences, fluid dynamics such as PIV, life sciences, and demanding laboratory research tasks.

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

The industry's first comprehensive Robot Integrator Program saves robot integrators significant time and cost investments by allowing them to mark each cell compliant with ANSI/RIA R15.06 with the TUV Rheinland Mark. As opposed to a traditional certification or an on-site field labeling, TÜV Rheinland's Robot Integrator Program certifies the knowledge and skill-set of robot integrators in addition to testing robotic cells and processes against ANSI/RIA R15.06. This reduces the need for frequent onsite or off site testing and allows manufacturers to apply a single TÜV Rheinland label to multiple cells. The Robot Integrator Program individually assesses a robot integrator's understanding of the ANSI/RIA R15.06 standard along with the ability to consistently produce compliant robot cells. Following the requirements and procedures of the new program will enable robot integrators to produce individually compliant robotic cells under one serialized TÜV Rheinland Mark, which meets the national electric code and allows acceptance by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and end users.
