The Phantom TMX 6410 is designed for extreme high-speed situations. The back side illuminated (BSI) high-speed CMOS sensor it utilizes delivers the same quality images Phantom Cameras are known for.
The Phantom TMX 6410 utilizes a back side illuminated CMOS sensor designed for high-speed imaging. The 64 Gigapixel throughput allows for extreme frame rate speeds that are capable of delivering up to 1.5M fps with a 95ns minimum exposure time with our FAST option. All frame rates are actual data, with no interpolation, for the most accurate results. This is only possible because of the advancements of utilizing back side illuminated sensors in high-speed imaging. In BSI sensors, the metal components that can block incident light from the photodiodes are located in the back of the sensor, and can be designed to reduce processing overheads, making the power of a TMX possible. For an in-depth look at how this technology has revolutionized high-speed imaging read our whitepaper on BSI Sensor Technology.
At the full 1 Mpx resolution of 1280 x 800 the TMX 6410 records at almost 66,000 fps. The 6410 provides larger resolutions than possible before for applications needing high frame rates. For example, the 6410 can reach over 300,000 fps at 1280 x 160 or 640 x 320 (binned). These incredible speeds mean that data management is vital to ensuring as little downtime as possible. Like other TMX models up to 512GB of onboard RAM and the Phantom CineMag (non-volatile storage) data management options are available.
The TMX 6410 has access to all of the traditional Phantom features that make camera use easy. Both on-camera controls and compatibility with our Phantom Camera Control software assist in ensuring that researchers of a variety of industries and applications have the tools they need to make their experiments a success.
Interchangeable lens mounts (PL, C, M42 and Canon EOS) are also available to help customize the same camera to a variety of application needs.

400W Power Supply with 3-pin XLR to 3-pin Fischer Power cable for TMX Cameras
The Phantom TMX Series are the first high-speed cameras to use back side illuminated (BSI) sensor technology. Other high-speed cameras use Front Side Illuminated (FSI) sensor technology. In BSI sensors, the photodiode is closer in the sensor architecture to the light source, while the metal circuitry of the sensor is behind the photodiode.
This architecture provides two main benefits. The first is improved light sensitivity and Quantum Efficiency because the photodiode is closer to light source and not impeded by metal circuitry. The second is maintained throughput as frame rates increase, because the metal behind the photodiode can be redesigned for higher efficiency. Simply said, as frame rates increase, the BSI technology in TMX can offer much larger resolutions than available in cameras with FSI technology.
The TMX Series have a single RJ45 Ethernet port that is auto-negotiating to either a Gb Ethernet or a 10Gb Ethernet interface. This capability is a standard feature. When optimized, the 10GB Ethernet interface allows for cine downloads at speeds more than 5X faster than the standard Gb Ethernet interface.
While any compatible 10GBASE-T interface card installed in a PC should work, we have been using and recommending the Intel X540-T1 and X540-T2 cards. Be sure the latest Intel drivers are installed, and the appropriate network address is assigned to it (For example, IP 172.16.0.1 and Subnet 255.255.0.0) Also, ensure either the Phantom 10G Network driver is installed.
The RJ45 port on TMX has a locking mechanism. It works with standard Ethernet cables, or, for a more secure connection, Vision Research provides a ruggedized CAT 6A Ethernet cable with the mating locking component on one end.
A CAT6 or CAT7 cable is recommended and gives you a maximum 100m distance between the camera and the interface card. (A CAT6 cable is limited to 50m.)
Yes. In fact, there is a viewfinder port (VF) on the camera that will supply video and power to a viewfinder or monitor. Many standard monitors may be used. The TMX cameras have 2 BNC ports that provide HD-SDI.
All TMX digital cameras come with a 400W power supply, providing ample power for a camera with maximum 512GB memory, a CineMag, and the viewfinder.
Yes. You need to order the optional Canon EOS lens mount and use it with one of the tested and supported lenses (see FAQ). The part number is: VRI-MNT-TMX-EOS.
