H-EM 501

This system consisting of one or two high speed cameras and an airborne computer is able to stream image sequences to flash disks for hours.

Camera systems like the H-EM 501 designed for airborne applications need an ultra-solid design and a structure to withstand the harsh environmental conditions of flight. This system can meet the big challenge of immunity to shock, vibration, changes of temperature and moisture. H-EM 501 is THE solution for long time high speed recordings for aircraft and component testing.


Datasheet: HSI-AOS_H-EM_501_leaflet


H-EM 501 is a high speed camera that connects directly to a recording device via Gigabit Ethernet link. The camera is configurable by software and can record a maximum of 2 megapixels up to 90 fps. By reducing resolution, the H-EM 501 offers stunning data rates such as 1280 x 720 pixels @ up to 125 fps or 800 x 600 pixels @ up to 300fps. H-EM 501 is fully compliant with GigE Vision standards.

H-EM 501 cameras are available in monochrome, color or as NIR (near infrared) version. Due to a sophisticated algorithm in the camera image frame rates not seen before over a standard Gigabit Ethernet link are achieved. This small compact high speed stream- ing camera fits into the tightest spaces. Nevertheless H-EM 501 with its camera control software leaves no compromise in view of functionality and analysis compared with competitive high speed cameras. Circular buffer recording, triggering by external discrete signals or by motion detection are available in the standard system.

In addition, for longer recording time, you may stream directly to hard disk for minutes or hours making sure to capture the most intermittent events. Easy export of image data to the most common movie formats is one of the many features of the software. Last but not least a basic motion analysis software with automatic tracking features is included.
