SAN DIEGO, 12 Sept. 2016. Photron Inc. in San Diego is introducing the electro-optical PhotoCam SpeederV2 digital high-speed camera for production fault-finding to enable workers to view and identify production errors quickly on the integrated 7-inch LCD remote touch screen, without the need for a computer or network infrastructure.

The SpeederV2 system is available with one or two miniature remote camera heads that are tethered to a compact camera control unit. The new production line imaging system provides as many as 2,000 frames per second at full pixel resolution (512 x 512) and higher frame rates at reduced resolutions.

There are two video recording modes -- speed priority mode for high-frame-rate, full-resolution video capture to the onboard internal memory; and time priority mode for extended duration video capture (i.e. very long recording times at reduced frame rates and/or resolutions) which can be streamed to an integrated solid-state drive (SSD).

The PhotoCam SpeederV2 system operator can tart or stop a recording manually using the touch screen or a simple thumb switch. Alternatively, the system can trigger automatically with a TTL pulse or switch closure emitted in the event of equipment failure or production line disruption.

Once the video is recorded, it can be played back in super slow motion, allowing factory personnel to view the production error and make necessary corrections immediately.
