The Ensenso N10 3D Camera is for Robots
IDS Imaging Development Systems Gmbh (Germany), one of the world's leading designers and manufacturers of machine vision cameras, today announced it will showcase the latest additions to its family of digital industrial cameras at the upcoming International Conference for Vision Guided Robotics (ICVGR) on November 13, 2013, at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center in Atlant, GA,USA.
The brand new Ensenso N10 3D stereoscopic camera shown here will allow robots to measure distances of near objects with unprecedented precision. It is available with focal length from 3.6mm to 16 mm and is encased in a robust 150 x 45 x 45 mm aluminum housing.
Distance Measured with Two Cameras and Projected Textures
At this years show, IDS will highlight the Ensenso N10 3D stereo camera. Robust and compact, the camera works according to the "Projected Texture Stereo Vision" process. It features two integrated global shutter CMOS sensors and a projector which throws a random point pattern onto the object to be captured.
The outstanding advantage of this system is that it also works in multi-camera mode, and that images of surfaces with no texture can be captured.
The camera's industrial usability is emphasized with a lockable, 3-pin M8-sensor/actuator connector with GPIOs for 12-24 V hardware trigger, input and output, and the lockable USB cable.
Very Small Cameras
IDS continues to dominate the worldwide machine vision market with some of the industry's most advanced models, including the uEye XS, the world's smallest machine vision camera with autofocus.
Measuring a compact 23 x 26.5 x 21.5 mm (.9" x 1.04" x .84"), the uEye XS is amazingly simple to integrate into virtually any imaging system, ranging from interactive kiosks and embedded systems using the Raspberry Pi, to traditional applications in medical technology, industrial quality control, microscopy, and access control.
