Stemmer Imaging has released the ZM18-DM multi-purpose line laser from Z-Laser, which is capable of producing structured lighting for 3D measurement, surface inspection and alignment applications.

The ZM18-DM is available in red, blue and IR wavelength versions with output powers up to 200mW.

The laser has a variety of Gaussian/uniform line optics and various diffractive optic elements available, including line, cross, dot matrix, and circle.

Simple manual focusing improves image resolution and the laser classification does not change with focus.

Since there is no removal of lenses, there is no need for additional tools.

The ZM18-DM can operate between 5-30VDC and has over-voltage protection with surge-spike protection.

The laser can be modulated digitally up to 100kHz, allowing the laser intensity to be varied to suit the colour of material being tested and also allowing it to be synchronised to the camera trigger for extended laser lifetime.

A built-in microcontroller and serial interface allows parameters such as operating hours and temperature to be logged.

An LED indicator indicates that the laser is in operation and provides a warning in the event of a failure.

An IP67 rated, fully waterproof enclosure means that the laser can be used even in environments where the surrounding equipment needs to be washed down.

The unit is conveniently thread mounted for simple and easy monitoring as well as providing good heat dissipation in the hottest environment.

The laser has an M12 industrial standard connector for robust electrical connections.

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.
