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.
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.
