The three models are packed with a long list of advanced features that push the 7 Series ahead of the pack. Features include the new AST CMOS sensor, with market-leading performance of 2.45 million fps and high-resolution. In addition to the new sensor, the i-SPEED 7 Series comes with an electromechanical shutter for remote session reference and a shutter integration time of 168ns. These features and many more make the i-SPEED 7 Series ideal for PIV, DIC, fluid dynamics, ballistics and a wide range of scientific research.

Unparalleled Throughput
AST CMOS sensor
The i-SPEED 7 Series (717, 721, and 727) provides an increased 2072 x 1536 resolution that raises throughput speeds to 27.1 GPixels/second (27.1 billion pixels processed every second)—at even higher frame speeds. The balance between resolution and frame rate produces amazingly clear images at impressive resolutions that are critical for accurate motion analysis.
Synchronized Integrated Lighting Control (SILC*)
The new integrated lighting control allows users to accurately control external lighting independent of the camera’s exposure duration. Three modes allow the user to set up a single pulse per frame, double pulse per frame, or change pulse duration on alternating frames. This is ideal for LED and PIV laser illumination where the timing of the light in relation to the exposure can be tightly controlled. Delay, duration, and relative position for each pulse can be defined, allowing for superior lighting control and advanced camera synchronization possibilities.
* Patent Pending
Rugged High-G Rated Body Design
iX Cameras engineers combined the i-SPEED 7 Series instrumentation and rugged models into one innovative camera housing ideal for both laboratory and challenging field environments. The sturdy rugged design features a high-G rated two-piece aluminum enclosure for exceptional protection. The redesigned all aluminum enclosure also includes a user removable handle to provide greater flexibility when mounting the camera to a static frame. Removing the handle exposes fixing points to facilitate the connection of other components such as the CDUe or lights, displays, booms, etc.
