About TroublePad: High-speed camera for production lines

TroublePad is an ultra-portable high-speed video system, for production line analysis and troubleshooting.

It is the result of cooperation between our R&D teams and our clients' maintenance personnel.

The TroublePad high-speed camera's design means it can be set up in a few seconds on your production lines. It is a high-speed camera system that requires no electrical power supply, no external lighting, no cumbersome cables... TroublePad is trouble free!

The TroublePad high-speed camera system is completely self-contained.

The TroublePad high-speed video system can be installed in even the most confined of spaces. The high-speed camera is connected to a touchscreen tablet, with access to live images, to sequence logs and to recording controls at the operator's fingertips.

Major strengths / Key features / In a few words:

  • Extremely easy to use
  • Small footprint (high-speed camera/touchscreen tablet)
  • Self-contained
  • High return on investment

Loop recording

  • TroublePad's high-speed video software is easier to use than any other.
  • It is the operational heart of the high-speed video workstation.

The operator will be ready to record sequences using the high-speed camera in a matter of minutes.

TroublePad high-speed camera enables image acquisition speeds ranging from 225 to 2500 frames/second.

Setting recording speed

It is very easy for the operator to define an specific area of interest in the image, so as to only retain the most relevant part.

Loop recording (loop duration is defined by the operator) enables continues recording for several hours, and recording can be stopped either manually by the operator or automatically by an external "machine" trigger.

Playback and slow motion

The sequences that are filmed by the TroublePad high-speed camera are automatically recorded, without operator interaction. The stored sequences are easily accessible for review and analysis, with ajustable playback speeds.

Sequence editing / Creating an AVI

It is very easy to isolate a sequence so as to keep only the most relevant part. An AVI file is created at the click of a button, at a frequency defined by the operator.
Ease of use and efficiency are our bywords!

Controlling the system through external triggers

As an option, the TroublePad high-speed camera can be set up as a slave to your production line and/or robots!

TroublePad's trigger box can be used to start and stop recording, to mark key frames, to retain a few seconds before and after your sensors' signal....

  • The aim is only keep what you need!

Using the trigger box will help you to easily spot and solve random and infrequent events on your production line.

The TroublePad camera acts as a real "watchdog" for you production line.
