MCT Identified and Installed the Perfect “All Around” Camera for Non Contact Tensile Testing Measurements.
High frame rates, high resolution, high light sensitivity, and small form factors were required for this application. Tensile testing often requires high frame rates in excess of 50,000 fps. Recording this fast is often challenging for a camera because the short exposure times mean lighting is very important. MCT provided a camera that met these requirements while also providing high resolution images where more pixels mean better data. The small form factor allowed multiple cameras to occupy a small test area.
The AX200 camera was chosen for this project because it satisfied all their needs. Megapixel resolution to 6,400 fps with reduced frame rates up to 900,000 frames per second. A 40,000 ISO Rating (using the ISO Ssat 12232 standard) is #1 in the industry for cameras in it’s class. The size at nearly a 4.5″ cube was ideal not only for positioning multiple cameras, but also for international travel.
As the exclusive distributor in the Southeastern US for several camera manufacturers, MCT was able to provide them pre and post sales support that also included a loaner camera when they needed an extra camera angle. MCT’s knowledge of the camera and application educated them quickly and efficiently enabling them to capture stunning images shortly after delivery.
