Specialised Imaging has recently supplied their renowned SIM-D Ultra Fast Framing Camera in a new multi-spectral imaging configuration. The versatile SIM-D has the capability of fitting up to 16 individual filters with wavelength from 400nm to 850nm within the optical system. This facility, coupled with the ability to take images at exposures down to 3ns with zero interframe time. enables the accurate study of wavelength dispersion when materials are stressed, the measurement of temperature, and colorimetry.
The SIM-D from Specialised Imaging has been designed as a no-compromise entry-level ultra fast framing camera system that uniquely combines ease of use, ease of maintenance, compactness and high performance.
Unlike other entry level ultra fast framing cameras the optical design of the SIM-D provides the choice of up to 16 separate optical channels without compromising performance or image quality. Effects such as parallax and shading, inherent in other designs, are eliminated and the high spatial resolution (> 36 lp/mm) is the same from frame to frame and in both axes. Individual ultra-high resolution intensified CCD detectors, controlled by state-of-the-art electronics, offer almost infinite control over gain and exposure allowing researchers total freedom to capture images of even the most difficult transient phenomena.
The intuitive design of the SIM-D allows even occasional users to achieve top quality results. A novel optical periscope for focus adjustment enables rapid and simple experimental setup and optimisation. Comprehensive triggering facilities, highly accurate timing control, and a wide range of output signals, coupled with a software package that includes full measurement and image enhancement functions simplifies image capture. Full remote operation using Ethernet connectivity comes as standard enabling the SIM-D to be easily integrated into almost any environment.
Sharing many common features with Specialised Imaging's performance benchmark setting SIM range of cameras, the SIM-D Ultra Fast Framing camera is perfectly suited for applications in fields as diverse as automotive testing, biomedical research, combustion research, failure dynamics, impact studies, nanotechnology and university research.
