Ranger3 camera

Sick has launched the Ranger3 camera. The high-definition streaming camera is powered by Sick’s imager with Rapid On-Chip Calculation (ROCC) technology. It is capable of capturing 7,000 profiles per second at full sensor acquisition.

The camera extracts the true 3D shape of an object, regardless of its contrast or colour. The Ranger3’s performance on light, dark, reflective and contrasting surfaces makes it useful for a range of inspection duties in metal production, electrical and electronics, road and rail vehicles and tracks, tyres and auto components, and food and beverage and packing industries.

The ROCC technology enables fast and precise shape, volume and position measurements even for large depths of field or height variations. By having analogue-to-digital conversion of the signals on the M30 CMOS sensor, and sending the accurate data directly to a controller or a standard PC, the ROCC process increases the application possibilities for high speed 3D quality inspection.

The Ranger3 camera delivers a continuous stream of GigE and GenICam-compliant data with a variety of 2D and 3D data generation options, as well as measuring reflectance and scattered light. It is easily built into standalone inspection units or integrated into automatic quality control systems with other sensing devices, such as encoders, photoelectric switches, light curtains and scanners.  

The Ranger3’s sensor acquires 3D profiles over 2,560 coordinates at 1/16 subpixel resolution.

The 3D vision camera is a compact (55 x 55 x 77mm) metal housing unit. The M30 CMOS ROCC sensor has a resolution of 2,560 x 832 pixels, and is capable of capturing 7,000 full frame profiles and processing up to 15.4 Gigapixels a second.
