• New, optional device synchronizes Photron’s slow motion cameras with National Instruments™ data acquisition module.

Photron, Inc., a global leader and manufacturer of high speed cameras and image analysis software, announces the availability of a new, optional Photron Fastcam Viewer (PFV) plug-in that provides synchronization of Photron’s high speed cameras with the NI USB-6251 BNC data acquisition module from National Instruments™.

According to Andrew Bridges, Photron’s director of sales, “We are very excited to announce this new optional capability to synchronize our slow motion cameras with National Instrument’s best-selling M Series integrated BNC Data Acquisition module. We are also delighted to provide the NI DAQ plug-in free of charge to our customers who order the option before March 31, 2013.”

The NI USB-6251 BNC data acquisition module provides eight differential analog channels (16 single ended) with an aggregate one million samples-per-second, single-channel data rate. For more information on the NI USB-6251 module, go to:

The optional plug-in is controlled via Photron’s PFV camera control software, and enables simultaneous recording and playback of analog data that is very precisely synchronized with high speed video sequences recorded with Photron cameras at frame rates from 60 to 1.5 million frames per second (fps). Importantly, it provides users with a detailed account of exactly what occurred, and why.

The most unique and valuable plug-in feature is “Level Detection Triggering”. This enables the system to monitor data acquisition signals from an event and automatically trigger the high speed camera to start or stop recording images when levels exceed user pre-set reference values. This important feature allows the reliable capture of unpredictable and intermittent events. For more information, please visit:
