Velocity™ EBSD Camera Series

The Velocity™ EBSD camera enables high-speed EBSD mapping with the highest indexing performance on real-world materials. The Velocity™ is powered by a CMOS sensor, enabling it to combine fast acquisition with high sensitivity and low noise performance for optimal collection and data quality.

The Velocity™ camera series is available in two different models:

  • Velocity™ Plus — up to 3,000 indexed points per second
  • Velocity™ Super — up to 4,500 indexed points per second

In the case of both the models, these speeds are achievable while offering indexing success rates of up to 99% or more. At these speeds, the Velocity™ utilizes 120 x 120 pixel images for enhanced band detection. Such an image resolution, together with EDAX’s certified triplet indexing routine, offers orientation precision values below 0.1° without requiring any dedicated processing routines for accurate characterization of deformed microstructures.

The performance of the Velocity™ camera series extends to a wide range of materials, such as lower symmetry, multi-phase, and deformed structures. The Velocity™ EBSD Camera Series allows efficient data collection on these real-world samples with the quality results required for optimal materials analysis.

The Velocity™ EBSD camera can be incorporated with compatible EDAX EDS detectors for efficient, simultaneous EDS-EBSD collection, even at the highest collection speeds. When used in combination with ChI-Scan™ analysis, this results in useful integrated data for accurate phase differentiation.
