DashCam for the Industry

Industrial DashCam

  • The Industrial DashCam records fast and high-resolution film sequences on command. This allows a better understanding of the behavior in machines.
  • Easy recording – easy error analysis
  • No more data flood
  • Ultra-compact industrial camera
  • Simple configuration

The Industrial DashCam – a small observer of your industrial processes: You want to know why the machine has slowed down its cycle? A machine component shows unusual behavior? Used in machines, production process and plants, the Industrial DashCam makes it possible to avoid unplanned production outages and costly downtime. Thanks to a ring memory, the IMAGO camera delivers a video of an incident before, during or after a signal is triggered. The camera is not only practical for machine condition monitoring but is also ideal for documenting final tests proving that the unit has left the factory in working order.

Easy recording – easy error analysis
The video recording is started by software or trigger input. This means that the camera captures color images, stores them and encodes up to 20 seconds into a standard video format on the integrated SD card. The videos can be copied from the camera via Gigabit Ethernet and played back on any computer. Many video players can also display slow-motion indicators so that scenes can be analyzed in detail and slowly. The Dash Camera compresses the images according to the H.264 standard and delivers the images in MPEG4 format.

No more data flood from high-speed recording systems
Depending on the application data is only recorded from the relevant period before, during or after a certain trigger input. The High-Speed camera delivers a full HD recording with 60 frames/second. At lower resolution even over 100 frames/second.

Ultra-compact industrial camera
The event camera has the form factor of a matchbox. It can thus be integrated into the machine at critical points.

Simple configuration with Web-browser based GUI
Connect the ethernet interface to a PC and configure all parameter via your browser. Once done, the Industrial Dash Cam is ready for the first video scene. The results can be copied by your file explorer in an easy way, too.

Food & Beverage
For example, Machine Monitoring: you want to know why a machine slows down its cycle. Or why a fast machine component shows unusual behavior – a slow-motion video from the Industrial Cam makes complex mechatronics understandable and shows where it sticks.
Further sample applications

Pharma
For example, Production Documentation: you can study fast processes, e.g. the insertion of the instruction leaflet. Evaluate what happened in a complex mechatronic movement. Support the instruction of services with a video showing what happened. Document the flow of fluids in the filling process. See details of the folding process of your carton.
Further sample applications

Production
For example, Industrial Monitoring: you produce a mechatronic unit, perform the final test and want to document it? The Industrial DashCam records this process, you link the video with the serial number and can always prove that the unit left the factory in working order.
Further sample applications

Packaging & Logistics
For example, Factory Monitoring: the plant operator always wants to know that a pallet has been packed and transported away – it simply saves a video scene at exactly this moment – other pictures or videos are not interesting.

A second scenario: Defect analysis of industrial processes: Suddenly, a conveyor belt stops – you want to know what happened before, what has been transported?

A third scenario: Observation Machines: For example, in logistics, the forklift truck drives to undreamt-of heights. What is going on up there? What do the shelf and its surroundings look like there?
Further sample applications

Developers of machines, plant operators, service technicians – generally industrial applications in which you know too little, are virtually blind, want to understand or document behavior without the predictive maintenance camera.
