Matrox Imaging camera features laser line extraction for 3-D scanning

For triangulation-based 3-D digitizing applications, the Matrox GatorEye extracts the laser line in an image to subpixel accuracy and produces the corresponding positional depth/height array.

For triangulation-based 3-D digitizing applications, the Matrox GatorEye extracts the laser line in an image to subpixel accuracy and produces the corresponding positional depth/height array. The industrial camera is available in six sensor configurations: 640 × 480 pixels at 110 frames/s, 1/3-in. monochrome or color CCD; 1280 × 960 pixels at 22.5 frames/s, 1/3-in. monochrome or color CCD; and 1600 × 1200 pixels at 15 frames/s, 1/1.8-in. monochrome or color CCD. For connectivity to external devices, an optocoupled trigger input, strobe output, eight GPIOs, and a controlled current source for driving LED illuminators directly are included. Power is supplied either by 12-24 VDC or PoE (GigE Vision interface).



Pricing for Matrox GatorEye starts at $1,495 US OEM (quantity 1) and it is available now.
