Paper Abstract

This flash unit has been designed to illuminate short duration events to photograph with high speed cameras in both streak and framing modes. Flash duration can be changed to either : 25 - 50 - 75 or 100 microsecondes (1.350 to 5 400 Joules output). Various sources, such as Xenon flash tubes can be triggered by a 10 v positive pulse, 10 ps half width, 50 input loading impedance. One to four sources can be used according to necessities. Power requirement : 110 or 220 v - 50/60 Hz. With its extremely wide operating speed range, power and versatility enabling it to photograph anything in explosive field, this unit had been very usefull for optical recordings of localized ejected mass measurements with an ultra high speed framing camera Barr and Stroud CPS.
