Vision Research, a manufacturer of digital high-speed imaging systems, has
announced the new Phantom Miro C-Series cameras, ideal for extreme
environments. The cameras have a compact cube design (73mm x 73mm x 72mm)
and are built to withstand shocks of 170G and vibration of 17 grms.
Comprising two models, the Phantom Miro C210J and C210, the Miro C-Series
features a 12 bit, half inch CMOS sensor which is capable of capturing images at a
maximum speed of 2,000 frames per second (fps) at full 1280 x 1024 resolution.
With standard mounting holes strategically integrated into the camera bodies, the
Miro C210J and C210 can be securely fastened and safely positioned for precise
image capture no matter how challenging the location may be.
Each camera has features to protect the images if a cable is severed during
production.The cameras have an internal battery and internal, non-removable
Phantom CineFlash memory, and can immediately store images to the CineFlash.
Should AC power be interrupted, the internal battery offers up to 30 minutes of
backup power allowing the camera to store images to the local memory.
Rick Robinson, director of marketing for Vision Research said, “To be able to offer
image quality and performance of this level in a form factor so rugged and compact
truly separates the Miro C-Series from the competition. No matter how demanding
the application or how harsh the environment, these cameras offer the ideal feature
set and drastically enhance the critical analysis of high-speed motion.”

The difference between the Miro C210 and C210J are the connectors. The Phantom
Miro C210 has connectors that are compatible with other Phantom Miro cameras for
power and control, allowing it to operate as a stand-alone camera for a variety of
scientific and industrial applications. The Miro C210J is designed to operate through
a single cable to Vision Research’s new Miro Junction Box (JBox).
The JBox is a flexible hub designed to not only help operate the camera but to
create almost any multi-camera configuration imaginable. Each JBox can accept up
to six cameras, each of which is connected using just a single cable. Other
Phantom Miro cameras as well as the Miro C210 can connect to the Miro JBox,
offering users significant configuration flexibility.
