pco.1200 s
High-speed 10 bit CMOS camera

Our high-speed 10 bit CMOS camera pco.1200 s comprises advanced CMOS and electronics technology. With the approach to integrate the image memory into the camera itself, it enables fast image recording with 1 GB/s.

The system features an high resolution and low noise. It consists of a compact camera with an external intelligent power supply. The image data is transferred via customer selectable standard data interfaces. The available exposure times range from 1 µs (50 ns optional) to 5 s.

This digital CMOS camera system is perfectly suited for high speed camera applications such as material testing, external crash testing or super slow motion movie clips.
