Image of 3D Laser Profiles The DS1000 series 3D sensor optimizes product quality by providing three-dimensional inspection of your products. The sensor is factory calibrated and includes industry-leading Cognex machine vision software with powerful 2D and 3D toolsets and a compact, IP65-rated design withstands even the harshest factory environments. 3D Laser Displacement Sensor Applications Unlike traditional 2D machine vision, the DS1000 laser profiler provides a topographical representation of your part from which you can measure 3D features such as length, width, height, tilt or volume relative to any surface. It also simplifies challenging OCR or presence/absence applications by creating contrast from height changes, independent of color. Applications: 1. Read embossed or raised characters such as those on automobile tires 2. Detect missing objects in boxes or packages by height inspection 3. Identify surface defects and chips 4. Measure heights and tilts of components to determine misalignment 5. Verify the correct volume for portion control Benefits Complete 2D and 3D machine vision solution - Expanded range of sensor options - Bundled with VC5 Controller - Easy deployment with Cognex Designer™ software Results in real-world units (mm) - Calibrated 3D system - Micron-level accuracy Contrast independent inspection - Dark object on dark background - Independent of color Ability to combine 3D and 2D cameras - Many applications require both World-class 3D and 2D vision tools - Height, volume, plane fitting and cross section tools - PatMax®, IDMax® and OCRMax™ algorithms World-class 3D and 2D vision tools - Height, volume, plane fitting and tilt tools - PatMax®, IDMax® and OCRMax™ algorithms Industrial IP65 housing - IP69K enclosure option for food and beverage applications Fast scan rates - Up to 10KHz
