High Speed Cameras

The CCWJ currently possesses two high speed cameras: Phantom V210 and a Phantom MiroeX4. These high speed cameras are instrumental for the study of shielding gases, metal transfer, arc behavior, and welding phenomenon in various welding processes. The CCWJ can also synchronize data acquisition equipment such as current, voltage, and wire feed speed with the high speed video, providing excellent insight into the welding process and phenomenon.

Phantom V210

At full resolution of 1280x800 pixels, the V210 can capture video at 2,190 frames per second (fps). For welding applications and at reduced pixels, the V210 can capture upwards of 10,000 fps to a maximum of 300,000 fps. The V210 possesses excellent dynamic range and good sensitivity in the longer wavelength near-infrared light spectrum, essential for welding research.

Phantom Miro eX4

At full resolution of 800x600 pixels, the Miro eX4 can capture video at 1,260 frames per second (fps). For welding applications and at reduced pixels, the eX4 can capture upwards of 4,000 fps to a maximum of 110,000 fps. The Miro eX4 possesses excellent dynamic range and good sensitivity in the longer wavelength near-infrared light spectrum, essential for welding research. The Miro is a self-contained camera with full touchscreen controls and battery powered operation. This makes it extremely unique and useful for conducting on-site welding observations to determine faults or provide insight into phenomenon.
