A new interface can be used to connect Mesa Imaging’s SR4000 3D time-of-flight cameras to MVTec Software’s Halcon 10 machine vision software.

The industrial-grade SR4000 camera enables the user to measure complex 3D objects at a high resolution in real time.

The new interface now allows the acquisition of the calibrated 3D data, such as distance, amplitude or Cartesian X/Y/Z images, within Halcon.

The whole functionality of the Halcon library is ready to be applied, including operators for morphology, matching or measuring.

Halcon’s 3D vision methods, such as 3D matching and 3D measuring, can be used.

Gerald Dahlmann, sales manager at Mesa Imaging, said: ‘Halcon is the ideal vision software for our high-performance time-of-flight cameras.

‘This new interface makes it easy for system integrators to use the high resolution of our 3D cameras within Halcon’s 3D vision methods and build innovative machine vision solutions.

‘In particular, this will help customers who look for new solutions based on 3D vision technology in industries such as robotics, life sciences, logistics or packaging,’ he added.

‘This combination of the industrial SR4000 3D camera with the well-proven Halcon software seems to be ideal for robust machine vision applications,’ said Christoph Zierl, MVTec’s product manager.

For future co-operation regarding this interface, Mesa Imaging has joined the MVTec Image Acquisition Partner Program.

This ensures a close partnership for a deeper understanding of each other’s products and ensures the trouble-free integration of software and hardware at customer applications.

SR4000 cameras are said to be compact in size and have excellent noise performance and good long-term stability.

The cameras come in an industrial-grade housing and are available in diverse configurations with Ethernet or USB interfaces.
