3D + RGB: New 3D camera from IDS brings color into space!

Ensenso C is ready-to-use and detects fine details even at large object distances

With Ensenso C, IDS presents a stereo vision camera that not only generates 3D point clouds, but also delivers 2D images in color (RGB) thanks to an additionally integrated image sensor. This enables realistic 3D images and supports subsequent processes - for example when the images are to be further processed to perform sorting tasks. Its compact housing is completely enclosed and complies with protection class IP65/67. This reliably protects the components from environmental influences and vibrations. In addition, the camera is delivered pre-configured and is thereby ready-to-use. Ensenso C is suitable for the automation of many industrial processes, such as in quality control, on assembly lines or for picking tasks.

Initially, the 3D camera is available with a baseline of approx. 240 mm; soon additional models with a baseline of approx. 455 mm will be offered. Thanks to the combination of powerful 200W projector power and the high resolution of 5 MP, the camera delivers precise data even in large-volume applications. With the large baseline and small field of view, the models achieve a reproducible Z-accuracy of 0.2 mm at 2 m object distance. Moreover, the camera is designed in such a way that temperature-related deviations of the depth values are reduced to a minimum: Deviations at 30 cm distance at 10°C temperature change less than 0.075 mm, for example. A diffused white light LED also supports with 2D color imaging in applications with changing ambient light conditions.

The Ensenso C fits seamlessly into the 3D camera range from IDS. The Ensenso product line is specifically designed for industrial requirements and combines precision with cost-effectiveness. Whether with fully integrated housing, modular design or integrated data processing: The Ensenso N, S, X, XR and as of now Ensenso C families provide solutions for a wide range of requirements from bin picking to quality control. Users can consult the Ensenso selector on the IDS website to find the right model for their particular application.
