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.

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
