MV1-D2048x1088-3D03-760-G2-8 3D Camera

g hspace="7" alt="Photonfocus MV1-D2048x1088-3D03-750-G2-8 DC Camera" align="right" width="200" height="151" src="/userAssets/aiaUploads/image/Photonfocus_3D_camera.gif" />Photonfocus extends its 3D product portfolio with the new 3D03 camera designed for high speed triangulation rates. The MV1-D2048x1088-3D03-760-G2-8 camera is based on the 2048x1088 CMOSIS CMV2000 CMOS sensor and follows the highly successful Photonfocus 3D01 and 3D02 3D cameras by implementing the Aqsense peak algorithm to ensure a sub pixel precision for the determination of the triangulation line and accurate transmission to the FPGA in the camera.  In addition to triangulation rates of up to 8450 profiles per second (2048x32 pixels) and simultaneously capturing 2 elevation profiles, the 3D03 camera can also output 2D frame data.  This allows the user considerable flexibility with configuring the lasers and cameras and ultimately reduces the cost of a triangulation system because only one camera is required for both laser line peak extraction and 2D image capture.

The new 3D03 camera features a GigE Vision and GenICam compliant interface which allows for an efficient and cost-effective set-up of high performance multi-camera 3D systems. The new 3D03 camera is fully supported by an updated version of the Photonfocus 3D Suite software and SDK offering numerous new features.  The 3D03 GigE-Vision and GenICam compatible interface allows the users to build their application using popular machine vision libraries that support GigE-Vision and GenICam standard devices.
A short user guide gives you a quick introduction on how to process the 3D data with machine vision libraries.

The 3D03 is also available as an OEM module or smaller form-factor Board Level camera allowing you to easily integrate it directly into your application.  A flex adapter is available to support applications requiring custom angles (Scheimpflug principle). Both form-factors are fully supported by the 3D suite software.
