New C4 camera for high-speed 3D measurementAutomation Technology GmbH13, Bad Oldesloe, Germany
Automation Technology presents with its new C4 camera series, the world fastest high-resolution 3D sensor. These new camera models have a resolution of either 1280x1024 or 2352x1728 pixels, and deliver more than 60 million 3D-points per second with a profile frequency of up to 30 KHz.
The integrated C4 processors detect the height-profile of the measured surface with a sub-pixel precision of up to 1/64 of a pixel without losing speed. One innovation compared to previous models of the C3 series is the smart camera architecture with an image-storage capacity of up to 1 GB. The light-sensitivity of the C4-1280 has also been improved.
The data-exchange is based on a Gibabit-Ethernet interface and complies with the GigE-Vision standard. The use of this standard reduces integration efforts by the user considerably. The setup of the camera is done in a very fast and simple way per Plug n Play through the GenICam protocol. Automation Technology offers additionally C4 technology as a compact sensor with integrated line-laser. These compact sensors are adaptable to customer requirements and have through their optical design an extended depth of field.
