Matrox AltiZ 3D profile sensors

Matrox Imaging announces the Matrox AltiZ series of integrated high-fidelity 3D profile sensors, featuring a dual-camera single-laser design. The fully integrated 3D profile sensors have been optimally designed to lessen scanning gaps. Simultaneous viewing of the laser line by the product’s two opposed optical sensors should therefore reduce optical occlusions — frequently encountered at critical surface junctures — caused by the laser line being obstructed from the view of a single image sensor because of a surface’s orientation.

Unlike common 3D profile sensors — equipped with a single laser and single optical sensor — the Matrox AltiZ features a dual optical-sensor design and data-fusion capability, said to offer higher 3D reproduction fidelity through the ability to combat occlusion and outlier data. The product delivers high levels of control over spurious data, providing robust reproductions of a 3D object or scene — whether mounted on the end of a robot arm or fixed to a gantry overlooking a conveyor. Data is represented as individual profiles, a depth map or a point cloud.

The integrated image sensors can work in either a synchronised or alternate fashion. In synchronised mode, the 3D profile sensor achieves maximum reproduction quality and robustness. Configured in alternate mode, the scanning rate is almost twice that of the synchronised configuration while still providing key defence against occlusion.

The profile sensors output 3D data over a standard GigE Vision interface with standard GenICam extensions; this means users are not locked into a specific proprietary interface, ensuring interoperability moving forward with commercial and custom acquisition, processing and analysis software. The device interoperates seamlessly machine vision software and is suitable for inspection tasks, delivering two powerful cameras within a single compact enclosure. An IP67 rating ensures its performance in tight spaces and harsh industrial environments.
