EDAX’s Velocity™ EBSD Camera Series offers high-speed electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) mapping and the most significant indexing performance on real-world materials. Velocity, powered by a CMOS sensor, combines quick acquisition with low noise performance and excellent sensitivity for optimal data collection and quality.
The Velocity Camera Series includes four distinct models:
- Velocity Ultra—Up to 6,700 indexed points per second (ipps)
- Velocity Super—Up to 4,500 ipps
- Velocity Plus—Up to 3,000 ipps
- Velocity Pro—Up to 2,000 ipps
These speeds are achievable for all models while maintaining indexing success rates of up to 99%. EDAX’s proven triplet indexing procedure provides orientation accuracy values of less than 0.1° without requiring any specific processing methods for accurately describing deformed microstructures.

The performance of the Velocity camera extends to a wide range of materials, including multi-phase, poorer symmetry, and deformed structures. The Velocity Series enables effective data collection on such real-world samples while delivering the quality results necessary for optimum materials analysis.
The Velocity EBSD cameras have the ability to combine with reliable EDAX energy dispersive x-ray spectroscopy (EDS) detectors for efficient concurrent EDS-EBSD collection, even at high collection speeds. Combined with ChI-Scan™ analysis, this results in useful integrated data for exact phase differentiation.
