EDAX offers the fastest EBSD mapping and optimal indexing performance on real-world materials with its Velocity™ EBSD Camera Series. Velocity, driven by a CMOS sensor, combines high sensitivity, low noise, and quick acquisition for the best possible data collection and quality.
There are four different models in the Velocity Camera Series:
- Velocity Ultra—Up to 6,700 indexed points per second (ipps)
- Velocity Super—Up to 4,500 ipps
- Velocity Plus—Up to 3,000 ipps
- Velocity Pro—Up to 2,000 ipps
These speeds can be reached for all models, and up to 99% indexing success rate can be provided. Without requiring specialized processing algorithms to accurately describe distorted microstructures, the proven triplet indexing routine of EDAX provides orientation accuracy values below 0.1°.

The performance of the Velocity camera covers a wide range of materials, including multi-phase, reduced symmetry, and deformed structures. The Velocity Series makes it possible to efficiently collect data on these real-world samples and produce high-quality results for the best possible materials research.
Even at the fastest collection speeds, the Velocity EBSD Cameras can be used with reliable EDAX energy dispersive x-ray spectroscopy (EDS) detectors to create effective concurrent EDS–EBSD collection. This provides valuable integrated data for accurate phase distinction when used with ChI-Scan™ analysis.
