Stemmer Imaging is offering the C4 series of GigE 3D high-speed cameras from Automation Technology (AT).

The AT C4 series features what Stemmer claims is the fastest high-resolution 3D sensor in the world.

It has a resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels and delivers more than 104 million 3D points per second – twice that of previous models.

The C4-1280-GigE features a smart camera architecture, which offers an image-memory capacity of up to 1Gb.

The C4-1280-GigE features a profile frequency of up to 73kHz.

The integrated C4 processor determines the height profile of any measured surface with a sub-pixel accuracy of up to 1/64 pixel, with no loss of speed.

Data is exchanged via a Gbit Ethernet interface that complies with the GigE Vision standard, simplifying integration.

With the plug and play GenCam protocol, configuration is quick and simple.

This GigE variant of the new AT camera is fully optimised for use with the Common Vision Blox GenCam drivers, allowing the sensor to be controlled from any CVB-based application.

It achieves this without the use of camera-specific libraries that would compromise its hardware independence.

Each AT C4 camera includes a free CVB Camerasuite licence.

Common Vision Blox also includes the Aqsense Shape Processor software, which features algorithms for capturing and comparing 3D objects and their surfaces.

The Aqsense Shape Processor software allows the alignment and comparison of dense 3D clouds of points with their respective models.

The Aqsense alignment procedure, which is based on the best-fit approach, relies on fast and accurate technology, which, combined with an optimised comparison engine, operates on huge clouds of points in a fraction of a second.

In practical terms, it compares the 3D-image data of a good part – the ’golden template’ – with the upcoming test parts.

The accuracy and processing speed of the algorithms mean that the tool can be used for real in-line production processes.

STEMMER IMAGING is Europe’s largest imaging technology provider with headquarters in Germany and subsidiaries in the United Kingdom, France and Switzerland.

Image processing or Machine Vision is used in many different application areas – such as industrial automation, medical imaging, security and traffic technology – as a powerful and cost effective way of implementing automatic quality assurance. Even at high speeds and with stringent accuracy requirements, image processing allows 100% monitoring and thus strengthens the competitive edge of those companies using it.

STEMMER IMAGING customers have access to a wide variety of imaging products from the worlds leading manufacturers. These manufacturers represent the cutting edge of vision technology which is something that is unique in Europe. STEMMER IMAGING are the developers of the world’s leading image processing software platform, Common Vision Blox, and as a manufacturer of customer-specific products, we have a full range of in-house expertise to draw on, allowing us to supply the best possible service to our customers when choosing an imaging solution. STEMMER IMAGING does not produce turn-key solutions – instead, using our close partnerships with a large number of experienced system integrators, we can provide expert technical know-how for the planning, integration and realisation of complete solutions.
