AT expands its successful C4 camera series of high-speed 3D-sensors with one new model. The new C4-2040-GigE comes with a resolution of 2048 x 1088 pixels and delivers more than 66 million 3D points with a profile frequency of up to 32 kHz. The camera is also available in its C4-2040-4M-GigE version, with a resolution of 2048 x 2048 pixels.

The new reference of the C4 camera series combines all outstanding characteristics of the other C4 cameras, while enabling high-speed performances at a megapixel resolution. This key-attribute is the result of a complete new camera architecture, which takes the cost-performance ratio of laser triangulation sensors to a new higher level.

The new 3D-sensor uses a global shutter and exposes all pixels at the same time, this leads to very sharp and clear images. The C4-2040-GigE supports also the HDR-3D technology of Automation Technology, enabling the readout of the sensor with Multi-Slope and Multi-Frame-Readout. This way, the camera reaches a dynamic of up to 90db, scanning even materials and surfaces with inhomogeneous reflectivity properties. Another key-attribute for fast 3D-measuring is the high light-sensitivity of the C4-2040 sensors and their enhanced sensitivity in the NIR spectrum.

As all other C4-models, the new camera has a Gigabit-Ethernet Interface and complies with the GigE-Vision standard. In combination with the GenICam protocol, the efforts required for its integration are reduced to a minimum. The configuration is done in a very fast and simple way via Plug n' Play and the camera is accessed using standard interfaces. This means that the use of manufacturer's specific software-libraries is no longer necessary.
