IL5 High-Speed Camera Offers Multiple Recording Modes for Any Situation

Record production lines moving at high speed for performance or quality analysis

Published: Thursday, September 22, 2016 - 14:08

(Fastec: San Diego, CA) -- Fastec Imaging’s IL5 high-speed 5MP camera enables you to record production lines moving at high speed for performance or quality analysis, or troubleshoot using slow-motion replay, so you can see what you’ve been missing with normal speed video.

With four models to choose from, boasting crisp, clean video, from 2560 x 2080 at 230 fps to 800 x 600 at 1,650 fps, there is an IL5 to fit your application needs. All models record more than 3,200 fps at VGA resolution, and more than 18,000 fps at smaller resolutions. Able to save images to an SSD or SD card while recording high-speed bursts of hundreds or even thousands of images at a time, the IL5 is always ready for the next high-speed snapshot. With a base model starting below $9,000, the IL5 is a cost-effective solution to record high-speed events for slow-motion analysis.

Built for flexibility and ease of use, the Fastec IL5 camera can be controlled over Gigabit Ethernet via Fastec FasMotion software on your PC or Mac, or via the built-in web interface with your favorite web browser on your PC, Mac, tablet, or even your smartphone. Using the long-record (LR) FasCorder Mode, operate the camera as a regular camcorder to record and pause as needed; follow the action, stop recording, and review what you have, and then append additional footage at will, even after a power cycle. Unlike traditional high-speed camera systems that record only for a few seconds and require careful triggering, the IL5’s LR option can record at high speed for many minutes at high resolutions, to many hours at reduced resolutions.
