Ensenso N10 camera
IDS has extended the Ensenso N10 camera range with a series of additional versions with different focal lengths. A total of 24 models of the compact stereo 3D camera with USB 2.0 interface are now available. The focal lengths of 3.6 to 16mm can cover a wide range of distances and sizes. The free software interface supplied makes them easy to integrate into application programs.
Ensenso N10 cameras are equipped with two global shutter CMOS sensors and an integrated projector, which projects a random pattern of dots onto the object to be captured. This projected texture stereo vision method also allows the camera to capture untextured surfaces and, unlike other 3D methods, can also function in multi-camera mode. The camera can capture stationary objects and live images of moving objects.
The stereo 3D camera measures 150 x 45 x 45mm inclusive of the two sensors and projector. With a robust aluminium housing and a GPIO connector for 12-24V hardware trigger, input and output, the camera is ideal for industrial applications. The camera also features a screw-in three-pin M8 sensor/actuator connector and a screw-in USB connection.
The Ensenso N10 is a compact, synchronised system that is easy to integrate and provides metric 3D data out of the box. No additional calibration is required. The system is also available from Multipix Imaging.
