Calibrated 3D Area Sensor for Industrial Image Processing

With AreaScan3D VRmagic presents a 3D area sensor based on digital stripe light projection that supplies ready-calculated 3D data records for industrial image processing. The AreaScan3D sensor outputs the recorded 3D data to the evaluation computer via the Industrial Ethernet interface. The data is output directly as a point cloud or a grayscale-coded range map.


Stripe projection, image recording and generation of the point cloud are performed in an integrated manner based on an intelligent camera from VRmagic. The DLP picoTM projector from Texas Instruments and the camera are synchronized with a frequency of 60 Hz.

GenICam Transport Layer

AreaScan3D is addressed via a GenICam transport layer (GenTL). It is therefore compatible with all image processing libraries and packages that can communicate with a GenTL, such as Common Vision Blox or HALCON.

Guaranteed Measuring Accuracy

Measuring accuracy of AreaScan3D is guaranteed in the submicrometer to millimeter range, depending on the measuring field size. The material color does not have any influence on measuring accuracy.

Suitable for Industrial Environments

The AreaScan3D sensor can be integrated in industrial installations via the Industrial Ethernet interface. The sensor features a robust metal housing with IP65 protection, screw-type standard industrial connectors, a 24 V connection, an Ethernet interface as well as hardware and software triggers.
