Outstanding image quality and up to 523 full frames per second at 1696 x 1710 pixel resolution. The HiSpec 4 is GiGE compatible for easy remote camera control and allows users to operate multiple cameras from any standard Notebook / PC over a distance of 100 meters. The HiSpec 4 is a perfect fit for a wide variety of high-speed motion applications with the capacity to capture megapixel images at more than 1,400 fps. At reduced resolutions, images can be captured at up to 298,000 fps. The ImageBLITZ® Auto Trigger makes it easy to catch random events. In the field of view, users specify a "region of interest" and the software takes over. Any change in the pre-set area will stop the recording and save the images in memory. These easy-to-use features make the HiSpec 4 a valuable tool in any lab, production line or manufacturing environment. Hi-"G" and IRIG timing are available as options.

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.
