The new RS Lens shutter was designed especially for the tough demands of aerial imaging. It uses an innovative direct drive concept with electronic charging that enhances exposure speed as fast as 1/2500s, guaranteeing half a million exposures – a record breaking capture rate and life span longer than ever seen before. The blades in the RS shutter are produced of specially made carbon fiber material, as used in the aerospace industry, driven by a linear motor and controlled in real time for absolute precision of exposure time. The reliance of the RS shutter’s capacity of 500,000 cycles along with the exposure time of 1/2500s enables faster flying, and allows customers to execute and manage the most demanding aerial photography missions with higher operational efficiency, reliability, and in a cost effective manner.

Half a Million Actuations. Guaranteed.


iXU

ixu-bk

The Phase One iXU aerial cameras are the world’s smallest and lightest integrated digital medium format aerial cameras, available with a 100 MP or 50 MP CMOS sensor or an 80 MP, 60 MP and 60 MP achromatic CCD versions. All iXU cameras are equipped with internal electronically controlled central leaf shutters to provide the image quality expected from a dedicated aerial photography camera. The Phase One iXU cameras are so small that their body is barely wider than their lens barrels. With camera weights starting at 1.25 kg with an 80 mm lens, they are well suited for users requiring a small, light camera with a broad range of focal lengths. The iXU cameras use removable Schneider-Kreuznach fast sync lenses, which are available in focal lengths from 55 mm to 240 mm.


iXU Controller

Phase One offers a choice of hardware and software solutions to enable the integration of the camera with your existing workflow. Ultimate speed and control Designed to provide the ultimate in speed, and with the ability to control up to six Phase One aerial cameras, the iX Controller is a rugged, fanless PC, based on the 4th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 Processor.

With a small footprint and easily integrated into any aircraft, the Phase One iX Controller acts as a central hub of your aerial camera system controlling multiple cameras. Solid state drives The iX Controller employs two removable SSD drives, which have especially high write speeds to ensure you capture and record every image quickly and reliably. When the mission is over, the compact and light SSD drives are easily removed from the iX Controller and sent for processing

iXU / iXU-RS 1000

Phase One Industrial

The Phase One iXU-RS 1000 is the flagship product in our range of aerial cameras, presenting exceptional performance and advanced capabilities. Equipped with CMOS sensor technology and an innovative electromagnetic central leaf shutter, the iXU-RS 1000 provides enhanced capture rate and speed with zero latency, ensuring the precise image quality expected from a dedicated aerial photography camera. Best Choice for Surveying The Phase One iXU-RS aerial cameras include features such as: accurate metric calibration, central leaf shutters, scalability to form multi-camera arrays, as well as easy integration with popular flight management systems and GPS/IMU receivers.

The iXU-RS cameras are built with one of seven lenses — 32 mm, 40 mm, 50 mm, 70 mm, 90 mm, 110 mm or 150 mm. The interchangeable lenses are individually inspected and factory calibrated for infinity focus. The range of focal lengths cover most uses and is suitable for creating DTMs and DSMs for surveying as well as Orthophotos. The 50 mm lens, with its opening angle of 56.4°, is especially suited for capturing images alongside a LiDAR.

The CMOS technology of the iXU-RS 1000 enables you to move from ISO 50 all the way up to 6400, providing quality images all across the ISO range. As weather conditions deteriorate or on days when you previously were unable to capture, the CMOS-based cameras provide the high sensitivities that can make a difference.

iXU / iXU-RS 180, 160 and 160 Achromatic

 

Phase One aerial cameras are designed as the central hub in an open aerial data acquisition system, enabling users to choose “best-of-breed” components to complement the Phase One systems. The iXU-RS cameras are also made in 80 MP, 60 MP and 60 MP achromatic CCD versions for users looking for a standalone camera or an array of multiple cameras.

With a choice of models, the iXU-RS CCD-based aerial cameras are designed to easily incorporate into existing or new systems, making it the perfect solution for integrators or end users looking for a rugged, high-quality industrial-grade aerial camera system. The medium format solution offers exceptional image quality and features that rival large format cameras at a fraction of the price.

The Phase One iXU-RS aerial cameras, use one of seven lenses — 32 mm, 40 mm, 50 mm, 70 mm, 90 mm, 110 mm or 150 mm. The interchangeable lenses are individually inspected and factory calibrated for infinity focus. The range of focal lengths cover most uses and is suitable for creating DTMs and DSMs for surveying as well as Orthophotos. The 50 mm lens, with its opening angle of 56.4°, is especially suited for capturing images alongside a LiDAR.

The Phase One forward motion compensation (FMC) solution employs Time Delayed Integration (TDI) to compensate for image blurring occurring as a result of slower shutter speeds, faster flight speeds or higher GSDs. This enables more flexibility when determining flight schedules and enhanced image quality under low light conditions. The FMC option enables increased profitability through the ability to fly more days and under less optimal light conditions, compensating for issues with blurring and smearing. The Phase One FMC feature is sold either as an option on a new system or as an upgrade to an existing camera. It is available on the 80 MP and 60 MP iXU-RS and iXU cameras.
