Perfectly suited for severely space- and weight-constrained locations commonly found in both on-board vehicle safety testing and military testing applications, the FASTCAM MH6 camera system provides an extraordinary mix of resolution, frame rate, light sensitivity and durability through the incorporation of multiple small and lightweight camera heads with a single control unit. The MH6 allows up to six miniature (35mm x 35mm x 36mm, 100g) camera heads to be connected to single control unit. Extremely thin and flexible connecting cables are available in varying lengths to accommodate a wide variety of camera head viewing angles and mounting locations. Both the camera heads and the control unit are extremely rugged and have been operationally tested to 160G. Also provides automated image download to built-in non-volatile memory.
