Chromasens has released the 3DPixa 3D line scan colour camera. Employing factory-calibrated stereo engineering, the camera simultaneously captures two images of the same object to output both colour images and 3D height data in real time.
Height and shape are calculated using algorithms running on the latest GPU designs, including the Nvidia GTX Titan. The camera has an optical resolution of around 10µm and a height resolution of up to 1µm.
Chromasens 3DPixa cameras are available in two different designs: a compact system with a resolution of 15µm/30µm and a line frequency of up to 22kHz, and a dual system with a resolution of 10µm and a line frequency of up to 50kHz, which is suitable for higher resolutions or inspection speeds.
