Automation Technology has launched what it describes as a new generation of high-speed 3D sensors. The C2 models are based on a slim design that reduces weight and size as well as the price.
The series consists of the models C2-640-GigE, C2-2040-GigE and C2-2040HS-GigE, which differ in terms of resolution and measuring speed. The C2-2040HS-GigE comes with a resolution of 2,048 x 1,088 pixels and delivers a profile frequency of 32kHz. The C2-640-GigE features a sensor with 648 x 488 pixels and reaches a measuring speed of up to 22kHz.
The C2 cameras feature a IP67-rated housing measuring 40 x 40 x 47mm, suitable for a wide range of 3D applications.
The cameras feature a Gigabit Ethernet interface and comply with the GigE Vision standard. In conjunction with the GenICam protocol, the configuration is via plug-and-play meaning the 3D function can be used as easily as a conventional 2D camera, the company says.
