Beginning in April, FRAMOS, the global leading supplier of imaging components, will introduce the new Intel® RealSense™ D405 depth camera to its product portfolio. The D405 is the smallest model in the D400 series – a compact, short-range stereo camera that delivers sub-millimeter accuracy. The Intel® RealSense™ D405 depth camera operates in a range of 7 cm to 50 cm and achieves minimum object detection of up to 0.1 mm at 7 cm. At a distance of 25 cm, depth accuracy is better than 0.7%. A USB 3.1 interface and multiple mounting threads allow for easy integration. Its power consumption in streaming mode is 1.55 W while only 35 mW in standby mode.

Versatile Usage for Short Ranges

At just 60 grams and measuring only 42 mm x 42 mm x 23 mm, the Intel® RealSense™ D405 depth camera is smaller than a golf ball and ideally suited for robotics applications that require precise depth sensing at close ranges from 7 cm to 50 cm. Primary applications include industrial manufacturing, automated inspection on assembly lines and high-precision placement of small objects at close range.

The new D405 depth camera is also helpful in smart farming: it provides highly accurate measurement and positioning data so that robotic arms can grip fragile fruits and vegetables without damaging them. For applications in medical technology or healthcare: The D405's short-range accuracy enables a complete and accurate 3D image of wounds in seconds to determine healing progress without physical contact.

High-Resolution Sensor Delivers Optimized RGB and Depth Data

The camera's global shutter sensors have a field of view of 87° × 58° with a depth resolution of up to 1280 × 800 pixels. Like all Intel® RealSense™ depth cameras, the new D405 can be used indoors and outdoors in a temperature range of 0°C to 55°C. The camera's image signal processor (ISP) optimizes the depth sensor's 1920 x 1080 RGB pixel data (up to 90 fps) and ensures expressive image results by matching the RGB and depth data.

The platform-independent Intel® RealSense™ SDK 2.0 and the corresponding tools support all current Intel RealSense depth cameras.

Further information

The Intel® RealSense™ depth camera D405 will be available from FRAMOS in April 2022. At MODEX 2022, FRAMOS will present a demo with the new Intel® RealSense™ D405 in its booth for the first time. All current Intel® RealSense™ depth cameras can be requested from local FRAMOS representatives.
