scan rate

The number of times per second an image capture or display device samples its field of vision. See scan line and horizontal scan frequency. See also scan technology.

scan rate

The rate at which individual scans are recorded. The rate is usually indicated in scans per minute.

The control performs supervisory functions at a 20-millisec scan rate, triggers critical transfer from filling the mold to packing the part at 2 millisec, and performs critical closed loops, such as injection pressure and velocity, at 0.
With the Pace DC-550 HD, different SD and HD program content is automatically scaled and scan rates changed to ensure the user sees a picture the way they want to watch it, avoiding black bars around the picture (letterbox and pillarbox bars) that are evident with some set-tops on the market today.
