For robotic guidance and material handling/logistics systems, the TZG01 Digital 3D Cameras replace multiple camera systems and extend the potential of 3D object detection. Equipped with an integrated Time of Flight (ToF) sensor, these cameras supply data on target dimensions and position with one snapshot that captures and displays both a distance and a grayscale image.
At frame rates up to 54 fps, the cameras reliably acquire data at a range of 0.3 to 5 meters. These cameras integrate lens, sensor, and LED into a compact IP67-rated housing suitable for use in harsh environments exposed to moisture and particulate contamination. As a generic programming interface, Baumer-GAPI, eases the cameraÃ¢â‚¬Å¡ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s integration into an application. The Baumer SDK includes all libraries, help files, and tools for camera control.
For data transfer, the cameras are equipped with a standard fast Ethernet that delivers data on cables as long as 100 m. At the same time, the camera offers a single-cable Power over Ethernet (PoE) interface where both data and power run on a single Ethernet cable.
These cameras are used to view objects on robotic arms, robotic pick-and-place systems, automated material handling lines, and in logistics systems where machine vision is essential. The cameras can be used in palletizing, luggage/package sorting, volume/area identification, part location/positioning, presence/completion checks, and collision detection.
