3-D Camera

Photonics Spectra
Jul 2010
SICK Inc.Request Info
 
For improving uptime in packaging, automotive and electronics applications, Sick Inc. has launched a high-speed 3-D camera that measures color and the 3-D shape of objects, resulting in more reliable decision making and increased throughput and product quality. The ColorRanger E eliminates the need for several different cameras for the same task, which reduces solution cost and complexity. It solves various inspection tasks by measuring shape, contrast and surface defects to ensure product quality and production reliability. It provides high-resolution RGB color at up to 3072 pixels per channel, with on-chip white balancing and spatial correction. With simultaneous 3-D and color information at more than 11 kHz, multiple inspections can be performed in parallel at full production speed.

GLOSSARY
camera
A light-tight box that receives light from an object or scene and focuses it to form an image on a light-sensitive material or a detector. The camera generally contains a lens of variable aperture and a shutter of variable speed to precisely control the exposure. In an electronic imaging system, the camera does not use chemical means to store the image, but takes advantage of the sensitivity of various detectors to different bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. These sensors are transducers...
color
The attribute of visual experience that can be described as having quantitatively specifiable dimensions of hue, saturation, and brightness or lightness. The visual experience, not including aspects of extent (e.g., size, shape, texture, etc.) and duration (e.g., movement, flicker, etc.).
contrast
The apparent difference in brightness between light and dark areas of an image. For a light target against a dark background, contrast is computed as follows: where Lt is the luminance of the target and Lb is the luminance of the background.
electronics
That branch of science involved in the study and utilization of the motion, emissions and behaviors of currents of electrical energy flowing through gases, vacuums, semiconductors and conductors, not to be confused with electrics, which deals primarily with the conduction of large currents of electricity through metals.
resolution
1. In optics, the ability of a lens system to reproduce the points, lines and surfaces in an object as separate entities in the image. 2. The minimum adjustment increment effectively achievable by a positioning mechanism. 3. In image processing, the accuracy with which brightness, spatial parameters and frame rate are divided into discrete levels.
