IoT Video for
machine fault playback & analysis

Request Demo

CamView™ records video clips of faults and stoppages that can be easily accessed from your efficiency monitoring system.

As a visual aid for machine fault analysis, CamView™ automatically collects and trims footage before and after the fault. Teams can access video through LineView to better understand the true cause. CamView™ can also be used to troubleshoot areas of concern or improvement as identified by LineView™. Operators can position on various machines, anywhere on the line without the the aid of special lighting, lens or a visual technician.

Best for:
  • Capturing a sporadic issue on a machine without the need to watch it
  • Troubleshooting an issue on a remote machine or an area of a line that is not usually manned by an operator
  • Identifying the actions carried out during an operator stop or guard open event through an overview of an entire machine or area
  • Achieving visibility of a machine fault area that is not possible from outside the guarding
  • Resolving those “lived with problems” through continuous monitoring of a fault or state to provide detailed feedback to engineering teams
  • Getting varied view angles of a machine area through multiple cameras connected to one trigger

Use less labour to troubleshoot and find efficiencies
No need to stand and watch to troubleshoot root cause. Video clips are automatically available for playback within your existing LineView™ system.


CamView FAQ:
  • How is the video linked to a specific machine stoppage?
    This is setup in the admin section of your system, within which a core machine state or specific machine fault signal can be associated to a specific Camera.
  • Can I connect more than one camera to the same monitoring system?
    Yes, more than one camera can be setup and associated with the same line or monitoring zone.
  • Can I connect more than one Camera to the same machine and/or trigger signal?Yes, more than one camera can be setup and associated with the same machine. It is also possible to link multiple cameras to the same trigger signal
  • What signals can I use to trigger a Camera?
    Core machine states such as Not Available, Lack, Buildback as well as specific machine fault signals can be connected as triggers
  • Is there a limit to the length of video?
    The maximum capture window is 45 seconds pre and 120 seconds post the trigger signal. The minimum recommended window is 10 seconds pre and post.
  • What is the frame rate of the camera?
    The frame rate is 25Hz which is also described as full motion HD video.
  • Is there a limit to the amount of Cameras I can connect?
    There is no known technical limit
  • Can I choose where to store my video files?
    Currently video clips are stored on the associated IView device in a default folder structure specific to each camera. e.g. C:\data\lineview\camview\video\Camera 1. It is possible to define the maximum storage allocation to a given Camera folder and once this limit is reached video history will be overwritten. Starting with oldest files first. In the future it will be possible to define the file storage path within the system admin section to store video locally or on a separate network drive or device.
  • What format are the video files stored in?
    Videos are stored in .mp4 format
  • How much storage do I need for my video files?
    Storage is dependant the number of cameras, frequency of triggers and the clip length settings. The maximum video length is 165 seconds overall and the associated file size is circa 2.5mb. It is possible to define the maximum storage allocation to a given Camera and once this limit is reached video history will be overwritten. Starting with oldest files first
  • What filename format is used for the captured video?
    The file name for each video is labelled as follows: EventGUID_LineName_SignalName_DateTimeStamp.mp4. The Event GUID is an internal unique reference and not relevant outside of the built in viewer.
  • How do I view my captured video?
    Individual clips can be viewed by selecting the specific event on the machine status page highlighted with a blue triangle. Alternatively video’s can be accessed via the manage video option within the External Devices admin menu (password required). Also file access is possible to the file structure on a given IView for video backup purposes only.
  • Can I download a video to my PC?
    Yes, the video playback feature in google chrome allows a video to be downloaded to the viewers device. Access is via the … icon.
  • How much bandwidth is used by CamView?
    Only video clips are transferred across the wireless network
  • How long does the battery last in the camera controller?
    Typically the battery will need replacing after around 20 hours of continuous use. A % charge indicator is shown on the battery casing.
  • How long does it take to charge the controller battery?
    A full recharge is achieved in 12 hours
  • Is there a permanent power option for fixed installation use cases?
    An external socket on the camera controller for feeding in power will be available in the next hardware release.
