Basler's First 3D Camera Enters Series Production

POSTED 11/15/2016

Basler's ToF Camera is the first industrial Time-of-Flight Camera with VGA resolution in the mid-range price segment. It delivers each individual pixel together with associated depth data, is easy to integrate and offers potential savings within the overall system.

ToF CameraAhrensburg – Leading industrial camera manufacturer Basler is bringing its first 3D camera onto the market. The Basler ToF Camera operates on the pulsed Time-of-Flight principle. It is equipped with eight high-power LEDs in the NIR range and generates 2D and 3D data in one shot with a multipart image, comprised of a range, intensity and confidence map. The Basler ToF Camera is the first industrial Time-of-Flight Camera with VGA resolution in the mid-range price segment. It delivers distance values in a working range of 0 to 13.3 meters, 20 frames per second and connects via a standard GigE interface. The measurement accuracy of the Basler ToF Camera is +/-1 cm at a range of 0.5 to 5.8 meters. It offers powerful features such as HDR, multichannel, trigger or PTP. These features make it simple and easy to implement applications even in complex systems.

Jana Bartels, Product Manager at Basler, explains: "The third dimension makes it possible to simplify applications that require depth data, which in turn lets customers reap the full benefits of the technology. Instead of installing multiple 2D cameras for generating 3D data and/or laser triangulation, one single ToF Camera is often enough to achieve the desired result. Our customers in turn can design their applications more efficiently and cut total system costs, not least because other ToF Cameras offer either lower resolution or higher price."
