Event Triggering

The Hindsight 2020CAM system can respond to external events by making a video clip event automatically using the external trigger known as the process interface unit (PIU). Events can be triggered manually by using the PIU box or by using the wireless keyfob remote to trigger the event.  

The PIU control can also accept signals from a PLC control system, process upset sensor, or vision analysis system. External events are signaled to the 2020CAM Engine by a dry contact closure, such as a relay. This allows for automated saving of video clips from the 2020CAM's continuous video buffer for archiving and frame-by-frame analysis. 

The PIU box connects to the 2020CAM and accepts inputs from a wireless trigger or from a PLC controlle allowing for automated event capturing.   
On all 2020CAM systems, an external trigger button is available to manually trigger events. This interface can also receive input from an external PLC triggering system or upset sensor.
