The new Scorpion 3D Stinger 30 mm Baseline Camera power with a RPP random pattern projection laser is an IP-64 camera generating 3D images in real-time. The camera is easy to mount, has integrated strobed LED illumination and a random pattern projection laser. The unit is powered with 24 V and connected to a Scorpion Embedded PC over GigE.

The Scorpion 3D Stinger cameras extract 3D information on moving objects. The compact size and smaller baseline makes it a replacement for 2D cameras where true 3D machine vision is needed in assembly verification and 3D object location.

The camera is designed to work at a distance of 100 to 400 mm with a corresponding 3D Field of View of typical range of 100 x 100 x 75 mm to 200 x 200 x 150 mm with an expected z-resolution of 0.1 to 0.3 mm.

A compact IP-64 Industrial Stereo Vision unit contains a Scorpion Stinger Control Card, two GigE Cameras, RPP – random pattern projection laser and high power LED and a 30 mm baseline.  The camera is compatible with Scorpion Compact Vision, Scorpion Vision Software® and the unique One Push Calibration device for automatic, fast and accurate 3D calibration.

Supported by a complete range of Scorpion Stinger hardware

There is a selection of Scorpion Stinger PCs from the smallest Scorpion Ultra Compact PC – 149mm x 105mm x 44mm – the versatile Scorpion Compact PC with expansion slots, the Scorpion Embedded PC with 5 GigE ports and a powerful i7 CPU and for the most demanding applications – a real Industrial PC with the latest hexacore CPU from Intel.

Scorpion Compact Vision Concept

Scorpion Compact Vision System provides powerful machine vision for 2D and 3D applications without the need of programming skills.  The Scorpion Stinger family of hardware components is compatible with Scorpion Vision Software. We provide all hw and sw components needed  to make  machine vision automation. This includes configurable sw for 2D and 3D image processing, image storing and traceability, data logging, configurable IO, interfacing with PLCs, robots and databases, support for the latest GigE cameras with cost and quality tailored to the application.  In the Scorpion Stinger family there are industrial IP-64 2D and 3D cameras with integrated illumination, industrial LEDbars and support for a large number of flexible IO modules. The Scorpion Vision Software supports  more or less any protocol like rs-232, tcp/ip, modbus, profibus and OPC.

Scorpion Compact Vision solves almost any tasks within 2D and 3D robot vision, label inspection, assembly verification, colour identification and gauging.
