Perfectly suited for severely space- and weight -constrained locations commonly found in both on-board vehicle safety testing and military testing applications, the FASTCAM MH6 camera system provides an extraordinary mix of resolution, frame rate, light sensitivity and durability through the incorporation of multiple small and lightweight camera heads with a single processor. The MH6 allows up to six miniature (35mm x 35.4mm x 35.4mm, 100g) camera heads to be connected to a single processor.

Extremely thin and flexible connecting cables are available in varying lengths to accommodate a wide variety of camera head viewing angles and mounting locations. The camera heads are extremely rugged and have been operationally tested to 160G. Each MH6 camera head provides outstanding image quality with 1080 HD resolution at 1,000 frame per second and an industry leading light sensitivity of ISO 5,000 color and ISO 12,500 monochrome. Camera heads are compatible with readily available 1-inch C-mount ruggedized lenses.

The MH6 system allows automated image download to built-in non-volatile memory. Image transfer to a computer is available via Gigabit Ethernet and USB3. A built-in 3-axis / 1kHz acceleration sensor allows waveform data to be saved alongside recorded images, and can be used to provide a trigger signal to the system if necessary.
