DAQ modules synchronized to slow motion camera

Photron : 16 January, 2013  (New Product)
Fastcam viewer plug-in synchronizes slow motion camera systems from Photron with data acquisition modules from National Instruments
DAQ modules synchronized to slow motion camera

Photron announces the availability of a new, optional Photron Fastcam Viewer (PFV) plug-in that provides synchronization of Photron’s high speed cameras with the NI USB-6251 BNC data acquisition module from National Instruments.

According to Andrew Bridges, Photron’s director of sales, “We are very excited to announce this new optional capability to synchronize our slow motion cameras with National Instrument’s best-selling M Series integrated BNC Data Acquisition module.  We are also delighted to provide the NI DAQ plug-in free of charge to our customers who order the option before March 31, 2013.”

The NI USB-6251 BNC data acquisition module provides eight differential analog channels (16 single ended) with an aggregate one million samples-per-second, single-channel data rate.

The optional plug-in is controlled via Photron’s PFV camera control software, and enables simultaneous recording and playback of analog data that is very precisely synchronized with high speed video sequences recorded with Photron cameras at frame rates from 60 to 1.5 million frames per second (fps).  Importantly, it provides users with a detailed account of exactly what occurred, and why.

The most unique and valuable plug-in feature is “Level Detection Triggering”.  This enables the system to monitor data acquisition signals from an event and automatically trigger the high speed camera to start or stop recording images when levels exceed user pre-set reference values.  This important feature allows the reliable capture of unpredictable and intermittent events.
