Capable of scanning up to 1 billion frames / second, and offering unmatched ease of use, high reliability and high performance – the Specialised Imaging SIM-D is the entry-level ultra-fast framing camera of choice for academic teaching and research groups worldwide.
The design of the SIM-D allows students and researchers 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.
Unlike traditional entry level cameras there is no compromise with the SIM-D. An auxillary port option enables research groups to study even the most complex ultra-fast phenomena by interfacing high speed video, streak cameras or time-resolve spectrometers with their SIM-D camera.
In addition, unlike many traditional 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.
Proven in leading universities around the world 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 and nanotechnology.
