The IDT Redlake MotionXtra N-series from Scitech are compact, self contained high speed cameras with very light-sensitive proprietary CMOS sensors of 1, 1.3 or 4 Megapixel and with speeds up to 4000fps at full resolution. The miniature N-Series high speed camera is smaller, lighter, and faster than comparable cameras. Weighing less than 2 lbs, the N-Series high speed camera enables fewer weight adjustments during testing. The N-Series digital high speed cameras are small enough to fit in a coat pocket and are High-G rated.

Benefits of the high speed cameras include:

  • The N-series high sped cameras feature configurable RAM
  • Very compact (60x60x75 mm)
  • Gigabit Ethernet interface
  • The high speed camera withstands up to 100G in any direction
  • Windows, MAC and Labview compatibility
  • Extremely light sensitive, up to 10000ASA (N4)
  • Autonomous use up to 60 minutes with the optional battery
  • 8 or 10 bit data depth 
  • iPod and PDA compatibility
Key features of the N-series high speed camera include the following:
  • Unlike other small camera systems, the N-Series high speed camera is fully autonomous and thus does not require to be plugged in to a console
  • The high speed camera shares the same sensors and has the same functionality as the comparatively larger Y-series devices
  • Thanks to a proprietary image compression algorithm the frame capacity is comparable to those of more traditional cameras
  • The N-series high speed cameras contain IDT’s extremely light sensitive proprietary CMOS sensors making it possible to record at blazing speeds without bulky and power-hungry illumination
  • The N3 high speed camera provides a frame rate of 1000 fps at a resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels, the N4 providing 1024 x 1024 @ 4000 while the N5 camera delivers 500 fps at a resolution of 2352 x 1728 pixels
  • The slow motion camera series also offers a choice of 10-bit (monochrome) and 30-bit (color) models, along with configurable RAM, a Gigabit Ethernet interface, and both MP3 and PDA compatibility
  • Autonomous operation can be achieved for up to 60 minutes with an optional battery. A wireless option is also available to increase the camera’s adaptability
