3D sensors for the inspection of geometry, shapes and surfaces of matt objects
surfaceCONTROL sensors are used for 3D measurements and surface inspections. The sensors use the fringe projection principle to detect diffuse reflecting surface and to generate a 3D point cloud. This point cloud is subsequently evaluated in order to recognise geometry, extremely small defects and discontinuities on the surface. Sensors with different measurement areas are available. This enables the inspection of the finest of structures on components as well as shape deviations on large-area attachments. Powerful software packages are available for evaluation and parameter setting.
Software integration via Micro-Epsilon’s 3D-SDK
The surfaceCONTROL sensors are equipped with an easy-to-integrate SDK (Software Development Kit). The SDK is based on the GigE Vision and GenICam industry standards including the following function blocks:
- Network configuration and sensor connection
- Comprehensive sensor control
- Control of measurement data transfer (3D data, video images, …)
- Management of user-defined parameter sets
- C/ C++/ C# library, example programs and documentation
Accessing the sensor via GigE Vision is also possible without SDK if you have a GenICam-compliant software.
