High-speed 3D Camera High-speed 3D Camera

Sensor properties

  • Non-contact 3D measurement in accordance with the laser-sheet of light (triangulation) method
  • Measuring speed up to 30 KHz
  • Image processing integrated in the camera. Height profile output via GigE vision
  • Configurable camera modes: image mode, profile mode
  • Selection of 3D camera algorithms: threshold-selection method, maximum method, COG method
  • All algorithms achieve the maximum profile rate, regardless of the algorithm selected and its parameters
  • Simple configuration via camera register
  • Configurable selection of the data output, e.g. height data or height data + intensity data
  • Genuine global snapshot shutter for accurate profiles without movement distortion (blurring)
  • Programmable number of profiles that can be merged to form a height image
  • Up to 8 freely selectable AOIs (sensor read-out window) in image and profile mode
  • Global snapshot-shutter for pure profiles with low in-motion unsharpness
  • Flexible trigger functions for profile and image triggering
  • RS422 interface converter with programmable counter for profile trigger generation and integral identification of direction of movement
  • Data transmission via Gigabit Ethernet Interface
  • Configurable opto coupled I/Os for trigger function and synchronisation
  • Storage of a user-defined start-up camera configuration in a configuration EEprom
  • Integrated control for external illumination (Laser)
  • Enhanced 3D imaging with High Dynamic Range 3D (HDR-3D)
