Velocity EBSD Camera Series

The Velocity™ EBSD Camera Series offers high-speed EBSD mapping with the best indexing performance on real-world materials. Powered by a CMOS sensor, the Velocity combines fast acquisition with high sensitivity and low noise performance for optimal collection and data quality.

Velocity™ EBSD Camera

 

The Velocity Camera Series is available in three different models:
  • Velocity Pro – Up to 2,000 indexed points per second
  • Velocity Plus – Up to 3,000 indexed points per second
  • Velocity Super – Up to 4,500 indexed points per second

For all three models, these speeds can be achieved while providing indexing success rates up to 99% or better. At these speeds, the Velocity Cameras utilize 120 x 120 pixel images for improved band detection. This image resolution, combined with EDAX’s proven triplet indexing routine, provides orientation precision values of less than 0.1°, without needing any specialized processing routines for accurate characterization of deformed microstructures.

The performance of the Velocity camera extends to a wide range of materials, including lower symmetry, multi-phase and deformed structures. The Velocity Series enables efficient data collection on these real-world samples with the quality results needed for optimal materials analysis.

The Velocity EBSD Cameras can integrate with compatible EDAX EDS detectors for efficient simultaneous EDS-EBSD collection, even at the highest collection speeds. When combined with ChI-Scan™ analysis, this results in useful integrated data for accurate phase differentiation.
