Phantom Miro family of digital cameras from Vision Research consists of high-speed cameras targeted at industrial applications ranging from vehicle crash testing to engineering and scientific research. Cameras feature a high-performance blend of resolution, speed, and light sensitivity for situations demanding high-speed image capture and motion analysis. Phantom Miro 1 entry-level unit can take images with a resolution of up to 640 x 480 pixels at any of eight fixed-frame rates, ranging from 50 to 500 fps. Phantom Miro 2 gives users the ability to control key camera parameters such as frame rates and shutter speeds in increments of one unit. Features include a maximum resolution of 640 x 480; frame rates from 1 to 1,000 fps; and the ability to record in either 8- or 10-bit pixel depth. Phantom Miro 3 is optimized for applications such as hydraulically controlled, gas energized (HYGE) crash simulations used in the automotive industry. It is rated to survive 100g acceleration and has a maximum resolution of 800x600 at up to 1000 fps. Phantom Miro 4 features the same high-performance CMOS imaging sensor with the ability to record at 800 x 600 at up to 2,200 fps, the highest resolution of the family. All cameras are based on the company’s CMOS sensor designs and offer a sensitivity rating of 4800 ISO monochrome.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
