SICK’s Color Ranger E enables high-speed 3D scanning and colour imaging in parallel for food processing, electronics, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and building material production.

The newest addition to SICK’s range of 3D sensors, the Color Ranger E offers the functionality of a 3D camera with a line-scan colour camera to provide two modes of quality inspection within a single unit.

The camera, which is said to improve the ease, reliability and speed of the quality-control process, can measure colour, shape, contrast, volume and height, to ensure product quality.

The Color Ranger E provides high-resolution RGB colour, up to 3,072 pixels per channel.

Using Multiscan technology, the camera can deliver simultaneous 3D colour information at more than 11kHz.

Multiple inspections can be performed in parallel, at full production speed, reducing the need for multiple cameras.

This can save investment, maintenance and labour costs, as well as time, and makes it easier to combine data for analysis.

The Color Ranger E delivers high-quality 3D and multi-linear colour data, including RGB, near and IR, and monochrome without IT content, on a Gigabit Ethernet communication interface, which facilitates convenient remote PC access for quality monitoring.

Colour is ensured by well separated colour filters of high spectral response, on-chip white balancing, and spatially corrected colour channel output.

To eliminate interference from the different light sources used for 3D and colour imaging, the Color Ranger E has a filter option for light source separation.
