High-Performance 3D Sensor for Industrial Image Processing

Easy Integration into Industrial Applications

With LineScan3D VRmagic Imaging offers a 3D sensor with integrated laser, optics and protective circuitry. Integration into an existing vision infrastructure is easily accomplished via the GigE-Vision interface. The LineScan3D has a robust IP65/67 aluminum housing, 24 V power supply, and an isolated RS485 interface for ABZ rotary encoder input and trigger. Multi-sensor setups can be realized without additional hardware.

Configurable Laser Line Extraction

Real time extraction of the laser line is carried out in the FPGA of the sensor at 1000 Hz and with an area of interest of 360 lines and 2048 points per profile. The extraction algorithm is configurable and can be adapted to suit particular applications. An optional high dynamic range (HDR) mode further enhances the laser line extraction for materials with varying surface reflectivity characteristics.

Synchronous Generation of Measurement and Image Information

In addition to the 3D range map, the sensor also supplies the brightness values of the laser line, the so-called intensity image. This gray value image enables efficient 2D image processing in parallel to the 3D measurement, e.g. for surface inspection or object identification via bar codes. The extracted 3D profiles and 2D image data are recorded at the same time and from exactly the same perspective – this provides optimum preconditions for combined evaluation.
