The IDT NXA-Series is a compact cameras system with flexible mounting options, designed for harsh environments such as automotive impact testing. 5GB of on board DDR memory provides storage for 4,866 full resolution images. The NX is rated to withstand up to 200G in shock and 40G in vibration and supports all optical interfaces from 1″ aperture.
The CrashCam Mini (CCM) has replaced the NXA-Series, and is an even more compact range of cameras with higher resolution sensors and higher frame rates.

With extremely low noise levels and high light sensitivity, Y-Series models perform well for those whose needs encompass both detail and speed, such as product testing automobiles and engines. The Y-3 can frame at up to 6,030fps at the full resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels, and higher rates at reduced resolutions. 5 different sensors were available in the Y-Series.
The Y-Series was the highest specification IDT camera. It has now been replaced by the O-Series, benefitting from a removable SSD memory disk, a much more compact design in addition to the hallmark low noise enjoyed by all IDT cameras.
OS Series Cameras
IDT’s MotionScope M-Series comprises a compact camera head, connected to a CameraLink frame grabber, designed for recording for long periods of time, by streaming images directly to a host computer. M3 records continuously at 520 fps with a full resolution of 1280 x 1024, and the M5 up to 130fps at 2336 x 1728 pixels directly to hard drive. Examples of useful applications of the M systems include automated industrial uses, such as assembly line malfunction prevention and detection, and scientific uses including sustained observation of microscopic or quick-moving subjects.
The X-Stream 720p and 1440p have replaced the M-Series, and benefit from higher resolution sensors, higher frame rates and a more efficient interface of PCI Express.
XSM Series Cameras
Redlake’s MotionPro X-Series was manufactured by IDT, but marketed by Redlake until IDT purchased Redlake from Roper Industries. It was a development of the HS-Series. These cameras were very simple to set up, as they included USB interface, making them plug’n’play. Ethernet was there as an option, when longer cabling or networking were required.
Three sensors were available in the X-Series. The ‘3’ was a 1280×1024 pixel sensor, capable of up to 1000fps, the ‘4’ a lower resolution 512×512, capable of over 5,000fps, and the high resolution ‘5’, framing at 2336×1728 at up to 520 frames per second. Early cameras had 2GB memory, and later cameras had 4GB. The X-Series were superseded by the Y-Series, which have memory options of up to 64GB, but the more popular Os-Series, with a wider choice of sensors should be considered as today’s replacement to the X-Series

Built on the extensive feature set of Kodak’s HG2000 and HG-TX CCD imagers, the HG-100K delivered the high quality images you’d come to expect from Redlake through a combination of exceptional light sensitivity, high resolution, and increased speed not found in any other CMOS based camera at the time. The 1000Base-T Ethernet interface allowed remote camera control and fast transfer fast transfer of compact Type-2 Bayer, JPEG, AVI and TIFF format images. The 1.7 megapixel sensor achieved 1000fps, and a top frame rate of 100,000fps at reduced resolutions, which was ground breaking. Related cameras were the HG-LE (a lower cost version) and the HG-TH, having a small tethered head for fitting into tight spaces.
Most HG-100K’s were sold for filming automotive crash tests.Today, the best camera for this application is the CrashCam – smaller, more rugged, faster and higher resolution. Progress in every department, as you’d expect. The CrashCam is smaller than just the head of the HG-TH.
