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.

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
