The Phantom TMX 7510 is designed for true high-speed performance. The back-side illuminated (BSI) high-speed camera sensor delivers unprecedented resolution and speed combinations. Its focus on data management makes work flow easy.
The Phantom TMX 7510 is the world's first high-speed camera to utilize back side illumination. Implementing this technology has allowed Vision Research engineers to develop a custom sensor capable of unprecedented speeds without sacrificing the image quality that Phantom cameras are known for.
BSI technology provides increased processing efficiency, allowing TMX cameras to maintain their high throughput levels even as frame rates increase. The TMX 7510 has 75 Gigapixel throughput which can provide over 76,000 fps at a full 1 Mpx resolution of 1280 x 800. At reduced resolutions the camera will record at over 770,000 fps in standard mode and up to 1.75M fps and 95ns in with the FAST mode. For an in-depth look at how this technology has revolutionized high-speed imaging read our whitepaper on BSI Sensor Technology.
One truth of high-speed imaging that never changes is that, 'with increased speeds comes the need for increased light'. The unique back side illuminated sensor found in the Phantom TMX 7510 deals with this issue by locating the metal parts of a traditional sensor that interfere with incident light to the photodiode to the back of the sensor. Moving those key elements to the back of the sensor allows even more light to reach each pixel, improving light sensitivity and QE.
This revolutionary platform is part of a generation of cameras that deliver greater throughput, premium features, and enhanced performance. Flexibility is key to ensuring that the TMX 7510 is capable of producing images that scientific analysts require. The ability to select binning mode allows for a variety of resolutions without sacrificing speed. In standard mode the TMX 7510 can reach over 300,000 fps at 1280 x 192 (long, thin rectangle), but if switched into binning mode the same speeds are possible at 640 x 384 (shorter and wider rectangle). The difference in resolution options means that researchers are better able to fit the camera sensor output to the size and shape of their high-speed event. These incredible speeds mean that data management is vital to ensuring as little downtime as possible. The Phantom TMX 7510 has up to 512GB of onboard RAM, can be fitted to use our custom non-volatile data storage, the Phantom CineMag, and comes equipped with 10Gb Ethernet download as a standard. All of these workflow tools are available on every TMX.
Like most Phantom cameras the TMX 7510 has interchangeable lens mounts (PL, C, M42 and Canon EOS) which enables the use of high quality and specialized optics without limitation. The camera mount can be customized for each particular test as needed.

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 than 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.
