Tordivel AS (Oslo, Norway) and SICK AG (Waldkirch, Germany) have released a new interface for all SICK 3D Cameras with Gigabit Ethernet interface to allow a superior performance with Scorpion Vision Software.
The interface makes the whole functionality of the 3D Cameras available inside Scorpion, including SICK’s unique MultiScan capacity to simultaneously acquire 3D and 2D data. Moreover, it is possible to acquire calibrated and rectified 3D data.
‘‘Scorpion Vision Software is a powerful framework where the user can process 2D and 3D images from our cameras without programming’‘, acknowledges Fredrik Nilsson, the product manager for the SICK 3D Cameras. ‘‘In Scorpion, the 3D data is treated as true 3D Point Clouds that directly can be visualized and efficiently processed. This gives users a high degree of flexibility and creates new opportunities for application solutions using the high quality 3D and MultiScan data from our cameras”.
‘‘We really look forward to promote the SICK’s cutting edge 3D Cameras together with Scorpion Vision Software. The high speed 3D data is a perfect companion for Scorpion Vision 3D and will generate new opportunities in Automatic Inspection Systems’‘, says Tordivel’s CEO and founder Thor Vollset.
About SICK 3D Cameras
SICK Ranger and Ruler are high-speed 3D Cameras for the most demanding needs. With their fast measurement speed, data quality, and high flexibility enabled by MultiScan technology, they are ideal for tough industrial environments worldwide. The cameras can be used for various solutions – from small-sized component inspection up to large-scale log scanning. They provide essential object information, such as 3D-shape, volume, contrast, gloss, and surface defects – all at the same time – needed for robust and reliable solutions.
SICK AG’s activities focus on producing increasingly intelligent sensors and sensor solutions for factory, logistics, and process automation. SICK provides, among other products, industrial vision cameras for factory and logistics automation. This product line includes Vision Sensors, Smart Cameras, Code readers, Accessories, and Cameras for high speed 3D Machine Vision. Target customers are Machine Builders, System Integrators, and End Users. Continuous innovation, its technological lead, and tight cost control ensure SICK’s leading position in numerous world and application markets. More information: www.sick.com.
