Featuring laser line extraction for 3-D scanning, Matrox Imaging’s
GatorEye GigE Vision industrial cameras have an IP67 rating and are designed for
operation in harsh environments. For triangulation-based 3-D digitizing applications,
the cameras extract the laser line in an image to subpixel accuracy and produce
the corresponding positional depth/height array. Only the resulting array is transmitted,
which lightens the load on the Gigabit Ethernet link and personal computer. The
computer can then focus on other tasks, including 3-D measurement and analysis.
The cameras feature a sturdy, dustproof and washable casing and are available in
six sensor configurations. For connectivity to external devices, they include an
optocoupled trigger input, strobe output, eight general-purpose input/outputs and
a controlled current source for driving LED illuminators directly.
