High-Speed Camera

Fastec Imaging unveiled the TS5 handheld high-speed camera for recording mining and blasting operations. Using slow motion replay, a user can analyze and troubleshoot events otherwise missed by normal-speed video. High-speed imaging is used to determine the effects of blasts or the actual firing times of blast holes and the nature of the rock movement.

The battery-operated camera features a large LCD touchscreen and an intuitive on-screen menu system. Four models are available, offering video from 2560- by-2080 at 230 frames per second (fps) to 800-by-600 at 1,650 fps. All models record over 3200 fps at Video Graphics Array resolution and more than 29,000 fps at smaller resolutions. The TS5 can be operated independently or controlled by a PC, Mac or handheld.
