The VCnano3D-Z-series intelligent 3D laser triangulation sensor is compact, lightweight, and easy-to-integrate for OEM applications. Running inside is a Xilinx Zynq SoC comprised of a dual-core ARM processor and FPGA where laser line detection, line coordinates and point cloud data is calculated without delay leaving full processor power available for application-specific tasks. Ideal for real-time applications in robotics, welding, robot guidance and adhesive bead tracking, the 3D laser profilers provide scan rates of up to 2 kHz and feature 1 GB Ethernet interface. The system integrates a class-2-rated, high-intensity blue 450-nm laser. Thanks to "Ambient Light Suppression Technology", the system ensures optimal visibility of the laser line even on especially challenging surfaces and ambient light up to 100,000 lux. In addition, the blue laser is suitable for food applications such as volume measurement in slicing and packaging applications. The VCnano3D-Z series includes various models for different working distances from 60 mm to over 3 m and resolution up to about 40 µm on the X axis and 10 µm on the Z axis as well as over 2000 mm wide visual fields.
