Flexible 3D vision sensor

15 November 2021

IN CONTRAST to many vision sensors which are designed for individual, specific tasks, the new SmartRunner Explorer 3-D product family from Pepperl+Fuchs offers high-precision solutions that can be used in a wide variety of areas.

This technology allows for the capture of a comparatively much larger range of data, opening up new possibilities for application. The two versions of this product – Stereo Vision and Time of Flight (ToF) – are based on the same platform with the same housing, standardised user software, and data output. Integration costs are considerably reduced.

The Stereo Vision version has two high-resolution cameras that produce a precise 3D point cloud image. This can be used to check and count defined objects or detect the volume of amorphous masses.

The ToF version of the sensor has a camera with VGA resolution (640 x 480px) and a high measuring rate of 30Hz. It is especially suitable for applications with a larger measuring range, where short reaction times are required. This data can be used for applications such as controlling driverless transport systems.
