Ranger - The fastest camera in the world for three dimensional shape measurement!
The Ranger camera measures 3D features at unmatched speed producing a complete data set of the object measured. Providing a 3rd dimension adds height and shape measurement data, which can be critical when correctly classifying an object. Ranger is the key component in many market leading in-line inspection machines used in the Electronic, Semicon, Wood, Robot Vision, Plastic, Rubber and Food industries.
The fastest 3D available!
The Ranger acquires up to 35,000 profiles per second, each containing up to 1536 high quality 3D coordinates. This is more than 45 million 3D points per second!
The complete 3D calculation is done inside the camera and the ready-to-use 3D coordinates are sent directly to a standard PC via CameraLink or Gigabit Ethernet. This eliminates the need for expensive post processors.
Easy to integrate
The 3D data is represented in the PC memory as a line scan intensity data stream, except that the pixel value corresponds to height instead of greyscale. This enables the data to be evaluated by your own or commercially available machine vision software. Any 3d party vision software with a C/C++ programming interface (such as MIL, HALCON, Sapera, etc) can be used. The HALCON software also offers a native Ranger interface which facilitates solution building for instance by using their graphical and interactive prototyping environment HDevelop. For easy integration of Ranger into LabVIEW a dedicated Ranger toolkit is available. More information can be found on the support pages.
Best market price/performance
Maximized performance without the need for super performing post processors, easily integrated with 2D machine vision software, allows you to quickly develop competitive solutions, both from performance and cost point of view!
