The 3D CMOS cameras MV4-D1280-L01-3D06-FB (LUX1310) are designed for high triangulation rates. The LUXIMA CMOS image sensor LUX1310, which is optimized for high frame rates and high sensitivity, was combined with two robust algorithms to determine the triangulation line in the FPGA of the camera. The user can either employ a FIR algorithm for asymmetric line profiles or a robust COG algorithm for symmetric profiles.

The triangulation algorithm activated in the camera calculates the line position of a line with 1/16 sub-pixel accuracy. In addition to the output of the height profiles, qualifiers are also output, which can be used to suppress artifacts or characterize the surface.

The camera is equipped with GigE interfaces and is therefore able to capture 3D profiles without a frame grabber or to set up cost-effective multi-camera systems as used for the inspection of profiles. The camera is available with GigE, 10GigE and 10GigE Fiber interface, according to the GigE Vision and GenICam standards. In addition, the cameras have a complete encoder interface that can be configured for the TTL, RS422, HTL and dHTL interface standards, as well as various outputs. External devices with an RS485 interface can also be optionally controlled. Of course all I/O's are galvanically decoupled from the camera electronics.
