For industrial image processing applications, VRmagic GmbH is offering a 3-D area sensor based on digital stripe light projection that supplies ready-calculated 3-D data records. The AreaScan3D sensor outputs the recorded 3-D data to the evaluation computer via the industrial Ethernet interface. The data is output directly as a point cloud or a gray-scale-coded range map. The sensor is addressed via a GenICam transport layer (GenTL) and is compatible with all image processing libraries and packages that can already communicate with a GenTL, such as Common Vision Blox and Halcon. Integrated into industrial installations via the Ethernet interface, the plug-and-play sensor features a robust metal housing with IP65 protection, screw-type standard industrial connectors, a 24-V connection, and hardware and software triggers. It is available with measuring fields ranging from a few millimeters up to a square meter.
