Vision Research, a leading manufacturer of digital high‑speed imaging systems, is expanding its line of Phantom® Miro cameras to include a ruggedized body style. The Phantom Miro R-Series, the third member of the Phantom Miro family, is targeted at applications in harsh environments where the camera must survive high shock and vibration as well as a broad range of operating temperatures. The Miro R-Series is offered in the same four performance levels available in the other Miro body styles—110, 310, 120 and 320S
“Our new Miro R-Series gives customers another choice in camera body style, expanding the number of applications for the camera family,” said Rick Robinson, Marketing Director at Vision Research. “The R-Series is targeted specifically towards those that need a ruggedized camera to withstand severe environmental conditions”
The Miro R-series is ideal for applications such as automotive crash tests, high-speed sleds and explosives research. As with the other Miro models, the R-Series has an external rechargeable battery (BP-U30 only) and the popular CineFlash non-volatile data storage system. It includes flexible tools for both qualitative and quantitative analysis and is Phantom RCU compatible
Key Specifications of the Phantom Miro R-Series:
- >100G shock. Tested with a sawtooth wave, 11ms, 30 times, 3 axes (without lens or internal capping shutter)
- 25Grms random vibration; 20Hz to 2KHz, all axes, 10 min/axis, in accordance with MIL-STD-810G
- -20C to +50C operating temperature
- 0 – 50,000ft (15,240 meters) operational altitude
- Image-based Auto-Trigger
- Continuous recording
- Multi-cine acquisition
- Gb Ethernet
- Rechargeable Battery (Sony BP-U30)Junction Box compatibility
In addition to the R-Series, the other two body styles included in the Phantom Miro family are the M-Series and the LC-Series. The M-Series is targeted at applications where computer control is preferred, such as static installations in laboratories or test facilities where high-speed cines are immediately saved to a computer for viewing and analysis. The LC-Series has an integrated flip-out LCD touchscreen for on-camera control and viewing of recorded cines. It is best employed in applications where the camera is used in a variety of applications, often requiring portability.
