The HiSpec 5 provides excellent high detail images at full resolution of 1696 x 1710 pixels and can capture megapixel images at more than 1,400 fps. The camera's standard memory is 4GB and can be expanded up to 8GB or 16GB total memory. The built-in battery operates in three modes; fail-safe mode to save images in the event of a power loss, untethered operation for up to an hour, and an image retention mode of up to 24 hours. The HiSpec 5's Gigabit Ethernet interface allows users to operate multiple cameras from any standard Notebook / PC up to a distance of 100 meters and multiple cameras can be synchronized to a master camera or to an external source, such as IRIG-B timing. Additional features include ImageBLITZ® software for automatic event triggering, Burst Trigger mode for recording images over an extended period of time and the Multi-Sequence Record mode to record sequences in 2, 4, 8 or 16 individual memory partitions.

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.
