Designed for optimal use in almost any industrial or laboratory environment, the HISPEC 5 high speed camera is an ideal vision system for monitoring production machinery, for scientific research or engineering. In particular it enables preventive industrial maintenance to be carried out without operational outage.

  • High speed camera with 2.9-megapixel, 8-bit sensor
  • From 500 to 300 000 frames/second


  • Up to 16 Gb of memory
  • Certified Hi-G up to 100G
  • IRIG-B range synchronisation standard

About High speed camera Fastec Imaging HiSpec 5

This high performance camera is equipped with a 2.9 megapixel (8 bit) CMOS sensor with a global shutter. Just like the HISPEC 4, it provides high definition image quality at a rate of 523 frames per second and a resolution of 1696 × 1710 pixels. It can reach 300 000 fps at lower resolutions. This digital camera is extremely fast: it enables you to maintain a resolution of 1280 × 1024 pixels at 1150 fps. It is a compact, lightweight camera. It is small enough to be installed in tight spaces, but also robust enough to withstand heavy blows. Its internal battery enables images to be stored for up to 24 h.

The HISPEC 5 video camera comes with its own user-friendly control software. It enables the synchronisation of multiple cameras with a master camera or external module, via your computer, thanks to its Gigabit Ethernet interface. It can be certified Hi-G up to 100 “G” acceleration, for use in vehicle accident simulations and other challenging environments.

ImageBLITZ® Auto Trigger and multi-sequence recording modes can be added as options. The automatic trigger is used to record images of random events, which are notoriously tricky to capture, by defining an 'area of interest' up front in the viewfinder. Multi-sequence mode enables recording of multiple events by partitioning the memory into 2, 4, 8 or 16 separate recordings. Memory can be extended to 16 GB.

  • Intuitive PC software with GiGE vision interface
  • ImageBLITZ image trigger
  • Multi-Sequence recordings
  • Phase-lock multi-camera synchronisation
  • CMOS sensor with global electronic shutter
