New 3D and robot vision camera series now available

10-01-2023 | IDS | Test & Measurement

The Ensenso N series, available from IDS Imaging Development Systems, now offers more advanced models with new stereo vision cameras (N31, N36, N41, N46).

The Ensenso N 3D cameras offer a compact housing (constructed from aluminium or plastic composite, depending on the model) with an integrated pattern projector. They are ideal for capturing static and moving objects. The integrated projector projects a high-contrast texture onto the objects in question. A pattern mask with a random dot pattern complements non-existing or only weakly visible surface structures. This enables the cameras to provide detailed 3D point clouds even in difficult lighting conditions.

With the models, N31, N36, N41 and N46, the company is now releasing the next generation of the previously offered N30, N35, N40 and N45. Visually, the cameras do not differ from their predecessors. However, they employ a new sensor from Sony, the IMX392, which results in a higher resolution (2.3MP instead of 1.3MP). All cameras are pre-calibrated and, therefore, straightforward to set up. The Ensenso selector on the company's website assists in selecting the right model.

Whether firmly installed or in mobile use on a robot arm, this 3D camera series provides reliable 3D information for various applications. The cameras demonstrate their worth in single-item picking, for example, they support remote-controlled industrial robots, are employed in logistics and even help to automate high-volume laundries.
