A fast‐scan television camera is described that was designed specifically for closed‐circuit data‐acquisition applications. The camera is capable of field durations as low as 2.8 ms. The line and field rates are quasicontinuously adjustable. The number of lines, the integration duty cycle, and the scan direction are among the other adjustable parameters. Typical resolution at the fastest scan rate is ≳500 TV lines per picture height with a corresponding dynamic range (to light input) of more than 100. The camera uses the unique properties of FPS vidicons and specially designed electronics to achieve its performance level and versatility.
