    High-Speed Photography and Lighting Needs

    The automotive industry uses various types of crash testing every day to evaluate and improve automotive safety. The application of high-speed photography utilizing two- or three-dimensional test analysis is the current tool of choice. While high-speed cameras have become more sophisticated, they cannot solve all problems facing the photographer. Along with camera optics, light is the most critical element in achieving the best pictures, using the desired frame rate and depth of focus.

    In a fraction of a second, all critical elements of the impact must be captured by high-speed cameras with the right resolution, clarity, and color. Without the right light this is simply impossible.

    Based on HIGH-S-LIGHT floodlights, Atlas offers custom integrated lighting systems matching the specific illumination requirements of various test configurations.

    The Control System

    For the performance of high-speed tests, a specifically defined time sequence must be followed. Additionally, the lighting system needs to be reliably integrated into the master test control system. That is where optimum positioning and illumination configurations for each test are stored as complete files. This ensures that the lighting system will perform properly for each and every test.


    The Movement System

    With over 40 years of experience, Atlas knows how to design and install the right positioning system that will meet your current and future testing needs. HIGH-S-LIGHT systems can move in all spatial directions (x-/y-/z-direction) and are fully rotational. Also, with special speed-drive, Atlas systems can be positioned up to 3x faster than conventional systems. These systems are especially useful for all test facilities with large distances e.g. between crash-block and car-to-car areas.
