Fastec HS5 High-Speed Camera
Fastec HS5 camera is designed for the most demanding applications, where high resolution and speed are needed.
Using a proven 12-bit CMOS sensor, the new HS5 allows a max resolution of 2560 x 2048, with an acquisition speed of up to 4061 fps @ 512 x 384 (up to 29000 fps at smaller resolutions). This camera is particularly useful in microfluidics to capture biological or chemical events, or to monitor droplet generation processes.
The HS controller (not included) eliminates the need for a dedicated PC.
