Some months ago Photonfocus presented the MV1-D1280-L01-3D05 as a new member of our 3D camera portfolio for laser triangulation applications. With the latest improvements the MV1-D1280-L01-3D05 is able to reach scan rates up to 68 kHz. The camera is based on a 2/3’’ high speed CMOS image sensor with an excellent performance in low light environments. GigEVision is used for interfacing with the host. For easy integration and synchronization the camera includes a complete shaft encoder interface based on RS422 or HTL. By using the HTL interface the camera can be used in heavy industry environments as well as environments with high electrical noise ratios.
