Automation Technology (AT) launches its new C5 sensor family. These 3D sensors apply the laser-triangulation principle for the scanning of objects and feature an ultra-high resolution of up to 12 MP with measurement speeds of up to 14 000 profiles per second. In addition, during the development of the sensors a special effort was made to enhance their industrial capabilities.
Therefore, the sensors have a compact and rugged design and are equipped with M12 tensile- and tear-resistant connectors to ensure their power supply as well as a reliable data transfer. For installations in rough environments (dust or splash water) the sensors are available with different lens covers that offer not only a protective class IP67, but also extras such as air barriers.
The first generation of cameras consists, for now, of the models C5-4090-GigE and C5-3360-GigE, which adopt many characteristics of the CX cameras. Therefore, also this new-generation of 3D sensors feature a Gigabit Ethernet interface and comply with the GigE-Vision standard. The HDR-3D functionality (High Dynamic Range) has also been implemented. This feature enables a better scanning of materials and surfaces, having inhomogeneous reflection properties. In combination with the Genicam-Protocol, the configuration of the new sensors is done by Plug&play. This means, it is possible to use existing imaging software to access the 3D camera like with a 2D camera.
