pco.dimax HD / HD+
the crashtest 12 bit highspeed CMOS camera

This high speed 12 bit CMOS camera system, pco.dimax HD, comprises advanced CMOS and electronics technology. With its sensitive 12 bit dynamic it enables remarkable fast image rates of 1469 frames per second (fps) at full resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The system features also a variety of trigger options to cover all offboard applications that have been required by the automotive industry. The image data are transferred via GigE or USB 2.0 (camera link optional) camera interfaces. The pco.dimax HD has a smart battery control, which allows a full operation for 1 h and a data backup for 6 h. The available exposure times range from 1.5µs to 40ms. This digital CMOS camera system is perfectly suited for high speed camera applications such as material testing, offboard crash or impact tests or super slow motion movie clips.
