The Phantom TMX series of high speed cameras institutes the first
high speed camera series that uses a backside illuminated (BSI)
CMOS sensor. Increased speeds present a need for increased light
and with the BSI sensor found in Phantom TMX cameras this issue
is addressed by locating the metal parts of a traditional sensor
that interfere with incident light to the photodiode to the back
of the sensor.
The TMX is part of a generation of cameras that deliver premium
features and optimised performance for scientific applications.
Flexibility is key to ensuring that the TMX 7510 is capable of producing
images that scientific analysts require.
Phantom TMX 7510 The Phantom TMX 7510 has 75 Gigapixel throughput which can provide
over 76,000 fps at a full 1 Mpx resolution of 1280 x 800. At the
reduced resolution of 1280 x 32, the TMX 7510 delivers a frame rate
of 1,750,000 fps.
Phantom TMX 6410 The Phantom TMX 6410 has a 64 Gigapixel throughput which can
provide over 65,940 fps at a full 1Mpx resolution of 1280 x 800.
At the reduced resolution of 1280 x 32, the TMX 6410 produces the
frame rate of 1,516,000.
The TMX series provide higher resolutions than possible before for
applications needing high frame rates. For example, the 6410 can
reach over 300,000 fps at 1280 x 160 or 640 x 320 with FAST mode.
Phantom TMX 5010
The Phantom TMX 5010 provides 50,725 fps at its full 1Mpx (1280 x
800) resolution. The TMX 5010 capitalises on the same high-speed Back
Side Illuminated sensor as other TMX models. With a 50Gpx/second throughput,
the TMX 5010 offers significant application flexibility and other
powerful features such as enhanced sensitivity and memory capabilities.
The TMX 5010 when run in Region of Interest mode for higher frame
rates is able to do so at higher resolutions. The
TMX 5010 also provides a FAST mode for increased frame rates. The
FAST option feature allows the TMX 5010 to reach speeds of up to 1.16
million fps at reduced resolutions.
Due to the TMX's high light sensitivity and incredibly high frame
rates, it makes it perfectly suited to ballistics e.g. gunshot analysis
or explosives etc.
Digital Image Correlation (DIC)
Digital Image Correlation is a non-contact method
of observing how an object is affected by impact and vibration.
It can also be used to create 3D imaging of the object to help researches
take exact measurements.
Combustion applications often have unique difficulties
that need to be overcome. Aside from being exceptionally fast events
they often have lighting issues as they quickly fluctuate between
being very dark and very bright. Phantom cameras have features that
aid researchers in dealing with these issues.
Droplet Analysis / PIV
Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) or droplet analysis,
is a research method that allows scientists to observe the flow
of air, water, and other invisible elements. Phantom cameras are
equipped with high-resolution sensors to make particle tracking
Incredible speeds for high-speed applications:
- Very high native
light sensitivity, made possible by backside illuminated CMOS sensor
- 2 performance models
offer extreme high frame rates at larger resolutions, up to 1.75 million
fps at 1280 x 32 and 640 x 64
- Real data for real results: frame rates are actual
with no interpolation.
Focus on data management:
- Record multiple experiments with up to 512 GB of memory
that can be portioned up to 511 times
- 10 Gb Ethernet is standard for the fastest data download
directly from the camera's RAM buffer
- Use the Phantom CineMag V for up to 8TB
of non-volatile memory and fast image transfer
