This sophisticated camera system is Capable of recording 5400 frames / s at full resolution (1024x1024 pixels). By Reducing the number of active pixels the framing rate Can Be Increased up to maximum of 675 000 frames / s; 16 GByte of 12 bit images can be stored in one recording. After a recording, the images are Transferred to a computer via a Gigabit Ethernet connection. The shortest exposure time is 370 ns, Which freezes the motion even for very fast events. The figure shows both the Photron (left) and the Redlake (right) camera systems, here used for filming laser welding. This equipment is Financed by the Kempe Foundations.
