Portability - With its small form factor, battery operation, large built-in LCD screen and intuitive full touchscreen menu system, the TS3 puts the power of a traditional high speed camera in the palm of your hand. 

 

High-Resolution, High-Speed Images - The TS3 records ultra-sharp 1280 x 1024 mono or vivid color images at over 510 frames per second. With recording rates in excess of 60,000 frames per second at reduced resolutions, almost no event is too fast for the TS3.

 

Flexible Control The TS3 can be operated as a self-contained, handheld camera, or controlled over Gigabit Ethernet via Fastec FasMotion software on your PC/Mac or via the built-in web interface with your favorite web browser on your PC, Mac, tablet, or even your smartphone. 

 

FasFire Mode – Ultra-fast save times to an SSD or SD card while recording high-speed bursts of hundreds or even thousands of images at a time, the TS3 is always ready for the next high-speed snapshot!

 

Long Record Option – Any model TS3 ordered with the "D" (dual mode) option can record at high speed for many minutes, or hours at reduced resolutions.

 

Multiple Storage Options -The TS3 features both a USB port and an SD port for quick and easy image downloads to USB flash drives, SD cards, or portable hard drives. An optional built-in SSD (solid state drive) provides for up to 512GB of lightning-fast non-volatile internal storage. Shoot all day long without having to download to a computer. 

 

High-Performance Image Transfer -With download rates of about 8GB per minute to the optional internal SSD, or just seconds for short clips, you will always be ready to take the next shot with the TS3! The FasMotion application makes workflow a breeze with transfers of uncompressed images via Gigabit Ethernet at rates of 50-80MB/s to moderately equipped PCs.

Food manufacturing consists of dozens of segments including animal foods, dog and cat foods, breakfast cereals, sugar and confectionary products, fruit and vegetable, frozen foods, dairy foods, meat, seafoods, bakery and snack foods. Food processing and production machines in many industries represent significant financial investments, are very complex and operate at high speeds. Quality, traceability and regulatory compliance are becoming more challenging and high-speed cameras are an indispensible aid to engineers and quality personnel in the operation of these machines.

Cartoning and case erecting, coding and marking, forming/ filling/sealing, labeling, adhesive applying, bagging/filling/sealing, blister filling/sealing, blow molding, capping, conveying, feeding/inserting, flow wrapping, pouching and shrink wrapping machines all operate at high speeds and need continual monitoring, adjustments and maintenance to operate at peak throughput.

Use Cases

cereal

Cereal Manufacturer

A leading breakfast cereal manufacturer was experiencing a high number of rejected cereal bags. A filler/sealer machine’s PLC timing was off by 30 milliseconds so that the bag heat sealing commenced before the filling had stopped. As a result cereal was caught in the seal. At 500 frames per second, 2 milliseconds per picture, the engineers were able to get more than 15 images at the end of the process. They were able to adjust the PLC timing so that dwell time was at a minimum and thus ensure that the maximum throughput of 200 bags per minute production was met without the sealing problem.
