|We just got a lot faster!|
This month we are pleased to announce
a significant change to our instrument lineup. All ramé-hart
goniometer and tensiometer products above Model 90, effective 1-Sep,
will ship with our brand new U4 Series SuperSpeed digital camera.
What's most amazing is that this new camera is 420% faster than the
U1 Series camera it replaces.
Just over five years ago we upgraded from the FireWire bus to the USB 3.0 SuperSpeed bus. The U1 Series camera has been a solid and reliable performer. We've had zero failures during the warranty period and fewer than 1% failure rates for systems that are between one and five years old.
The new U4 Series camera, also made in Germany, runs at an amazing 520 frames per second (compared to 100 fps for the U1 Series). The resolution has also increased by 20%. This new camera also uses the same USB 3.0 interface which has replaced FireWire as the bus of choice for high speed machine vision applications. What's more amazing is that we are NOT increasing the prices of any of our instruments despite the tremendous increase in speed and improvement in resolution. We prefer to pass on the product improvements to you at no additional cost.
In conjunction with the release of our new U4 Series camera, we will now also offer a U4 Series Performance Package (p/n 100-U4-PP). This upgrade includes a high-performance PC with SSD drive which is optimized for applications that require running at the highest speeds for extended durations. The system upgrade includes ample memory and storage to handle the most demanding high-speed tasks.

camera, or any of our products, or would like a quotation, please
